Re: Frozen Flowers

Aslaug Juliussen
Re: Frozen Flowers

26 November 2009 - 3 January 2010

It is a pleasure to present the Tromsøbased artist Aslaug Juliussen at SOFT gallery. Juliussen has for many years been an important contributor to the Norwegian artscene. For more than twenty years Juliussen has been living in Karasjok. A personal engagement for nature and culture in the northern region are a strong theme throughout her artistic career.

The exhibition consists of a new installation on the floor called RE: FROZEN FLOWERS. It consists of eight floral elements resting on a bed of tags used to mark livestock. The tags are used to categorise the animals. A combination og colour, number and letters is a code that tell who the owner are, which gender the animal is and when it is born. The floral objects are made of a broad variety og materials such as horns from reindeer, wire, glass and pieces of used furcoats. This eclectic selection of materiels gives a new viewpoint of life in the arctic region.
The installation invites to reflect upon the human cycle – from fertility and birth, to growth, life and death. The artworks of Juliussen is continousley developing, each artwork is part of a greater process.

Aslaug Juliussen lives and works in Tromsø. She graduated from The National College of Art, textile department, in Oslo in 1980. She has had several solo exhibitions, for example the show “Hornverk” at The National Museum of decorative Arts in Trondheim in 2006. Juliussen has participated in many group exhibitions in Norway and abroad, and has received numerous grants for artists. Her most outstanding commissions are the new tow hall in Tromsø, the Sami Parlament, and the ship Hurtigruta Midnatsol, and her art is purchased by and represented in many public collections.
