OLE FRIEDRICH (DE)
‘MAN MADE OBJECT’
Current exhibition: a solo show with the Danish duo Sabine Lavigne and Kristine Meyer + featuring German artist Ole Friedrich.
The title is ‘Face it’. The focal point is the mask. Meyer-Lavigne is fascinated with the mask as something related to a general human identity. Their new works can be seen as very specific expressions of pure shapes, but also as more complex objects that reflects who we are, what we feel, what we hide, what we really want, what we challenge. It is about being a human – being a mum, a woman, getting older, changing way of life. Meyer-Lavigne are looking at themselves – and at us. Often it is in the banal that you find universal meaning and create a common platform, where we, as humans, understand and touch each other. Let us take on/off our masks – let us face it!
The exhibition also features the German artist Ole Friedrich, who will be challenging our perception. His works are focusing on the interaction between natural and artificial phenomena. Friedrich is working and playing with one form – the circle. Depending on your viewing angle the works oscillates between minimalism and abstract expressionism. A kind of a reflection on the borderline of man made constructions and randomly behaving nature.
The exhibition is on view until July 21 st. 2018.
