BEYOND TRADITIONAL GALLERY
RVNHUS is housed in Klostergade 12, in a gently renovated old fish house from 1899 in the town center of Kolding. The lovely old fish house frames the setting of RVNHUS as a vibrant work studio and gallery space engaging global innovators, artists, and creatives that transcends our expectations of a traditional gallery, beyond display.
Because art matters, art creates a better world, art can connect us and inspire us, and art opens up dialog and challenges your imagination.
But most of all – it communicates with you. You can feel the art.
We not only want to show what the artist does but why. The purpose of the artist’s distinguished style. RVNHUS is all about feeling and seeing the artists’ energy, eagerness, and performance.
Rvnhus believes in craft, authentic touch, and intellectually engaging ideas. With the hope to awaken, and spark new ideas for people, for Kolding, and the world.
FRAME OF THE HOUSE
RVNHUS is a platform for ideas and cultures
– a house of possibilities.
RVNHUS headquarters is an ever-evolving experiential space engaging global innovators, artists, and creatives that transcends our expectations of a traditional gallery, beyond display.
RVNHUS believes in an experience that moves you. When you leave the gallery you bring something along, you become inspired or have learned something new. RVNHUS has something to say and share with the people of Kolding, and of the world. We believe in letting them become inspired.
We have the ambition that an exhibition must be built so that it engages and inspires you. We are delighted to bring interesting artists in RVNHUS and hope that you from all over the country will welcome these fantastic experiences.
RVNHUS is designed with the wish to create a marvelous captivating exhibition space that visually engages, inspires, and excites our senses. Our ambition is to bring forward and pass on the energy of the artists behind the art. Their statements, drive, and mantra.
The house is gently renovated with the greatest respect for its story and ambiance. All the interior is designed by Mette Ravn. Carefully, materials are chosen so that it highlights the old house and the fantastic staircase the house was born with. Our wish was to create an exquisite environmental frame that can present art in all forms in a professional way. The challenge has been to create without disturbing but let the art shine.
CONNECTION THROUGH ART
We believe people connect through art.
In RVNHUS we believe that we become enlightened in our relationship with art. The voice of art should be magical to you - we strive to show the artworks and the artists in a way that contributes to a great experience. Artists are driven by experimenting and developing - they are often driven by questioning life. We try to make the art we so much love relevant and understandable to all of you who care to see, listen, and share. Art helps us to understand the world and to make us more able to accept other people's ideas and beliefs.
RVNHUS is the place where people meet about and with art.
