ASTRID SVANGREN8 May – 30 Jun 2019
The Swedish visual artist Astrid Svangren (b. 1972) creates a comprehensive installation in Gammel Holtegaard’s meticulous architecture and symmetrically landscaped garden, combining unexpected materials in a decadent and sensuous manner, appealing to both the space and the viewer.
The exhibition is titeled: Mystery and dream / the self in constant resolution / the words and the colors / cries out who she is / deathly tired / lies ahead / explains / dismisses / elastic envelope / poetic documentation / the red paper like a knot on the wall / traces of clothing / its own orbit / open sculptures / a play / ritual / glittering and painful / a longing to understand.
