A Kind of Memory

Ingrunn O. Myrland
A Kind of Memory

28. April - 29. May 2016

The exhibition will be officially opened by Marte Østmoe, author and editor for the publisher Lyst Forlag.

We are delighted to welcome you to an exhibition featuring the art of Ingrunn O. Myrland. At SOFT Gallery, Myrland will present a new modularly-based wall work, an installation and several smaller works, each relating in some way to a kind of physical experience – a kind of memory.

Myrland talks about the stimulus for her works:

Recollections and experiences link up like a network in our memory. Encountering a smell, a sound, a pattern or a form can open the memory archive. Our experiences and knowledge about ourselves and our environment are grounded in our bodies. The textiles we are dependent on function like a second skin and are perhaps our most important sources for sensory experience. When planning a visual expression, my starting point is often my own ‘tactile memory’.

Myrland’s installations and tableaux invite us to enter a private, intimate sphere. She creates forms using a sewing machine and hand-stitching, combining colours and materials in ways that allude to skin and the body. We find obvious references to underwear and other types of clothing. The structure of these works, however, also recalls organic nature and geometry.

Ingrunn O. Myrland (b. 1976) lives and works in Hov, in the municipality of Søndre Land (Oppland County, Norway). She has a Bachelor’s degree in textiles from Bergen Academy of Art and Design (2002), and a Master’s degree in textiles from Oslo National Academy of the Arts (2005). Myrland has participated in numerous group exhibitions in Norway and abroad. With Ann Kristin Aas, she started the artist-duo IOMAKA, to create spatial installations and objects. The two have collaborated on several exhibitions in Norway. Ingrunn O. Myrland’s art has been purchased by KODE, Art Museums of Bergen.
