"The mind opens when the asshole opens", says the shit to Mejdahl

by Gas9Gallery and Formation Gallery


In Kim Richard Adler Mejdahl's new solo exhibition Shit Talk, spread out across the galleries Gas9Gallery and Formation Gallery, Mejdahl comes out as a shitty artist presenting new video works, drawings, and sculptures. By using popular cultural and cheesy references Mejdahl challenges the norms of aesthetics and art historical ideas about beauty and cultural hierarchies.

The exhibition balances the humorous, latrine, and hardcore in which Mejdahl searches for a new artistic practice engaging his own personal material. In Shit Talk Mejdahl invites us into his artistic universe, which includes both electronic music, a platypus handpuppet in latex and leather, a talking shit, and Ursula Reuter Christiansen's voice as the dog Molly, a world-famous psychoanalyst.

In the video work Shit Talk (2022) we witness a heated dialogue between the artist himself and his shit in the WC, who desperately argues for its role in his artistic practice and wants to avoid the flush death. In Tarantula (2022) we follow a platypus' elaborate preparations to go on the club 'Platypus Partybus' when it is announced in the newspaper The Duckbill that a “Scandalous! S/M Party” will take place. The fur must be trimmed and the harness must be fastened, after which Mejdahl takes us deep into the darkened sexclub with whiplash and motorcycle kink.


In front of the video work Kom Så Molly (2022), we are invited to make ourselves comfortable in the therapy's comfortable, soft livingroom, and witness the dog couple Rokko and Bobby, who are visiting psychoanalyst Molly. The couple goes through a hypnotic love journey and opens up about problems with PTSD and childhood trauma, manifested as symptomatic carpet wetting and amputated sex life.

The exhibition Shit Talk is an exercise in daring to remain in the ugly, saucy, and humorous, where Mejdahl brings his sexuality into play, as well as exploring the idea of the visual artist as a court jester. "The mind opens when the asshole opens", says the shit to Mejdahl. With the exhibition, Kim Richard Adler Mejdahl sets our most shameful sides free-it's ok to let shit out, tol et go, to surrender, to be embarrassingly touched, or simply to be touched.
