MAYA BJØRNSTEN

 Sometimes it is important to stop and just breathe. That is why I will be welcoming the Danish Performance Artist Sophie Dupont to perform her art ‘Marking Breath’. Sophie Dupont’s art explores the ritual repetition of the most important and simple action in life: breathing. With breathing as the starting point of the work, the barrier between art and life is removed. The work depends on breathing like the existence

of life itself. This artwork has been Sophie’s hallmark for years and it is always performed in the same way; from sunrise to sunset she will mark each of her breathes without pause. She has performed “Marking Breath” all over the world, including the Performance Festival Forma Y Sustancia in San Salvador and the Fountain Art Fair in New York.

It is beautiful when Sophie Dupont uses her body as the medium and transforms her actions into an artwork. For this reason we have chosen a gold pannel for her day with us, that will later be displayed in our hidden boutique.  I would, therefore, love to invite you to enjoy Sophie’s performance with us and perhaps join her work by marking your own breath. Any piece of jewellery bought on the day will also get a mark of breath by Sophie in commemoration of this special event.

At sunset we will be toasting to life with a glass of champagne, so join us at Bredgade 56, 1260 Copenhagen K on the 29th of October from sunrise at 8.11 AM to sunset at 17.35 PM.
