WE THREE: Flemming Ove Bech, Fryd Frydendahl, Bernard Yenelouis is a collaborative project done long-distance between Ithaca, New York City and Copenhagen in which each participant has circulated photographic images among themselves. The auto-curatorial structure of on-line sharing is shaped by the simultaneous intimacy and distance of three old friends in a sustained virtual conversation done over a passage of several months. The epistolary selection of images creates its own associations when installed in situ at Station923.
Flemming Ove Bech lives in Copenhagen, Denmark where he works with photography, print making, sculpture and independent publishing. In 2010 Bech co-founded the publishing company Lodret Vandret. Bech is the author of Olympiasieger (Vandret, 2013), sonic booms to consider (Vandret, 2012), and Formes Anterieures (Je Suis une Bande des Jeunes, 2011).
