26 August - 9 October 2011

The Vigeland Museum is pleased to present
Lotte Konow Lund’s solo exhibition:

It casts no shadow and it has no colour,
and yet it is so visible

Exhibition opening Thursday 25 August at 19-21

In connection with the exhibition, Jennie Bringaker is presenting a performance in three parts; "Portraits and monuments, stone and dead men". The first part is presented at the opening ceremony the 25 August.

The exhibition presents new works by Konow Lund.

The farewell party for Gerhard Richter (2008-2011) consists of a series of drawings presented in an 11 meter line (each drawing is 70 cm x 100 cm). The drawings describe the world known German painter Gerhard Richter’s farewell party at the Art Academy in Düsseldorf in 1997, where Konow Lund happened to participate together with fellow students from the Art Academy in Oslo.  

The work It takes a believer to see the glory (2011) is a hybrid between drawing and sculpture in aluminium, measuring 620 cm x 320 cm. This monumental wall piece, which Konow Lund refers to as a drawing, resembles the rays of Bernini’s Ecstasy of St. Teresa in the church of Santa Maria Della Vittoria in Rome. Characteristic for Konow Lund’s ”drawing sculpture” is its changing of character from distance to closeness, from light to metal, from precious material to aluminium.

It casts no shadow and it has no colour, and yet it is so visible (2011) consists of two video works projected on two monitors. The screens show the same picture of an elliptic shaped table. One film shows the table in sunset, the other in sunrise. The table moves from the concrete and functional to a painterly form or a symbol in the dark. The title do not relate to what is seen, but to the definition of contrast as in a field of vision.

The work Proposal for monument to Fritz Moen (2011) consists of a rack (320 cm x 270 cm). A picture of Fritz Moen reconstructing the murders of the two women he was convicted of having killed is hanging above the rack. Fritz Moen was later acquitted for the murders, and his case is Norway’s most known miscarriage of justice. 

The video installation The woman who defines the sculptures (2011) consists of a three dimensional model of an exhibition room (155 cm x 160 cm) with white walls and gray floor. In this room sculptures with archaic obelisk like forms are presented together with two wall projections showing a posing female nude.

Lotte Konow Lund is also showing the exhibition Konow Lund the Collection at Kunstnerforbundet in the period 11 August – 11 September 2011. This exhibition consists of more than 100 drawings that are copies of Norwegian art which makes the foundation for her personal art collection. Curator: Tone Hansen. Exhibition architecture: Architect Hedda Leivestad.
