detail of installation in group expo get things off our chests
What a strange little horn shows the inspiration and background story of my new work the desired state. The work shows the path into discovery for the more or less one year that it took to develop the stepping stones of my story. It gives you a rough guide through the development of the desired state up until now. As I let myself be guided by books, quotes and accidental encounters to give content to and shape my story, so let yourself be guided by the islands of glass to catch a glimpse of the shadows of my imagination.
To get (something) off one's chest is an act of sharing, confessing or relieving one's mind. It is an opportunity to talk about something worrying, to let go of neglect. It is an invitation to discuss something private, to pay attention to a character or an unknown nature.
As a response to creative dialogue about art practices, the framework of the exhibition takes the studio as a subject for exploring the key roles and methods of working, and positions artist’s body as an important element of its operations and creative labor. This group show introduces studio space as a site not only for producing, making and showing an artwork, but examines what is personally significant to a maker, an art worker, a creator, a female artist.
