July 29 – September 10, 2021
With the desired return of bright summer light and its ability to energize, reveal details and impact our perception of space, In The Gallery is bringing together three young artists, whom in each their own refined way presents work with a particular and unique understanding of light and space.
Rikke Flensberg works with images of the transcendence between reality and the human being and our perception of body, borders and human perception in her poetic and visually strong imagery and pale landscapes. Fragments of body turn into tectonic surfaces, erupting and shifting. Elements from nature are pushed into new forms, through which our bodily self can physically relate, and we are reminded of the inherent relationship held between the human body and the world which surrounds it.
Lea Jessen’s ability to present colorful and vibrant observations of space and surface and her attention to small, yet remarkable details is fully present in her work. With their focus on clean lines and abstract color planes, these anonymous architectural fragments take on a minimalist aesthetic, making them reminiscent of the concrete art of the 1940’s and 50’s. In The Gallery is presenting both Lea’s architectural spaces and her work of dreamlike holiday settings with their magical light, spaces and surfaces.
Lise Johansson won Photographer of the Year in the International Color Award last year, and the achievement is well constituted in her work with its subtle tones and refined use of color and light. Lise is presenting the work Absence, originally made for an exhibition at Hofteatret, as a self-staged portrait. Most recently Lise has developed a new series under the title Resort which explores leisure spaces and how the boundaries between public and the private spaces are interwoven.
