The Independent AIR er kendt for at besøge borgere i deres dagligstuer for at vise fotografisk billedkunst. Nu inviterer vi lokale kunstnere, kulturaktører og andre interesserede på besøg i vores egen dagligstue, på husmandsstedet i Løgager, hvor vi også har afholdt vores internationale residencies.
The Independent AIR indleder med at fortælle om kulturhovedstadsprojektet ”Billedet i en menneskeskabt tidsalder”.
Alle vil få mulighed for at præsentere sig og der vil være god tid til udveksling og uformel snak. Afsluttende vil vi ganske kort afvikle årets formelle generalforsamling i The Independent AIR.
Clément Verger b. 1988, is a French photographer from the south east of France.
After studying visual arts and communication at the National Superior School of Arts, Olivier de Serres in Paris, Clément was admitted for the Leonardo da Vinci European grant.

His latest projects have been shown at the gallery RX, the gallery Rivière Faiveley and the Musée de minéralogie des mines Paristech in Paris.
Constantin Schlachter b. 1992, France, is an artist based in Paris who works mainly with photography. Nature, invisible and matter are dominant entities in Schlachter's work. Using them, he creates sensorial fictions while examining reminiscence, mental landscapes and a spiritual return to Nature. In his approach all notions of realism are voided, and are replaced with abnormal colours, subjects and textures. He works in an instinctive way, constituting a continuous stream of pictures, in which projects punctuate that flow by crystallizing his evolving feelings.
He obtained a Photography Diploma at Gobelins, l'école de l'image in Paris in 2014. In 2016 he exhibited in the collective exhibition “Planet B-100 ideas for a new world” at the NRW-Forum in Dusseldörf. He was selected through the Foam Talent Call 2015 to have his portfolio published in Foam Magazine #42: Talent (2015) and was part of the Foam Talent exhibition traveling from Paris (Atelier Neerlandais) to Brussels (De Markten) and London (Beaconsfield Gallery). His dummy, Deux-fois-né was shortlisted at the Unseen Dummy Award (2015), le Photobook Fest (2015), Fiebre Photobook Dummy Award (2015) and at the Breadfield Dummy Award 2016. He was also shortlisted for the Hariban Award 2015
