Fargelag, fargelagt

Ingunn Bakke
Fargelag, fargelagt

24 February - 27 March 2011

Welcome to opening Thursday 24 February 7pm

With the exhibition “Multicoloured prints” SOFT gallery shows new work by textile artist Ingunn Bakke. Bakke has always been fascinated by the colour map - and not just the colours, but the graphical layout, with the overall patterns of squares or rectangles. But it is first now that she lets this interest be an artistic expression - a not unnatural need since she has worked primarily with white colours for years. Bakke is the first in this country to use digital printing technology in textile art. What she shows us is also a part of en exploration of what the digital technology can bring to this traditional crafts dominated artform.

Maps gives people a way to orient themselves, the square as the original form expresses a basic order in the world. The main work in the exhibition is a wall textile in a large format (2,5 X 4,4 m), digital printing on silk satin. Here Bakke has built differently shaped colour maps, laid them on each other, and through the use of repitition/variation, she has gotten the colours to work harmoniously. Annabeth Kolstø has designed a dress from this textile especially for the exhibition.

Bakke (f.1966) lives and works in Oslo. She is a graduate of the Institute the National Academy of art Oslo, and she has had solo exhibitions at Hå gamle prestegård, Jæren, and at Kunstbanken Hedmark Kunstsenter, Akershus Art Center and at Gallery Format. Bakke has participated in numerous group exhibitions, and her work is in the collections of the National Museum of Art Architecture and design, Sogn og Fjordane Art Museum and the West Norway Museum of Decorative Arts.
