Uro

10 September - 11 October 2015

The exhibition will be officially opened by Erik Steen, director of the Association of Norwegian Sculptors (Norsk Billedhoggerforening).

We are pleased to welcome you to an exhibition featuring the art of Kristin Wexelsen Goksøyr. Although she does not work with textiles, she aims to create a soft expression with materials that are in fact ‘hard’, for instance stone, plaster and bronze. Her sensitive treatment of surfaces engenders associations to soft materials such as textiles and skin. We immediately want to touch them.

Goksøyr’s works can be read as playful experiments with abstract and organic forms. They suggest something almost recognizable. Many people experience them as beautiful, calm and sensual, but also as disturbing. She wants her works to generate wonderment. T hey come into being over time, partly through a process involving a chain of associations.

The exhibition Uro presents some of Goksøyr’s newest works: wall objects made of plaster or bronze, one larger sculpture and a series of drawings.

Kristin Wexelsen Goksøyr (b. 1965) lives and works in Oslo and Nittedal. She studied at the National College of Art and Design in Oslo, completing a hovedfag degree in 1992. She has held several solo exhibitions, for instance at Agder Art Centre in Kristiansand, Gallery BOA in Oslo, and the Young Artists’ Society (Unge Kunstnernes Samfund) in Oslo. She has also participated in numerous group exhibitions such as the Sculpture Biennial and the annual Autumn Exhibition in Oslo. Her art is currently represented in the sculpture park at the arts-and-crafts centre ‘Bærums verk’. Goksøyr has produced several decorative commissions, one large project being for Naddreud High School in Akershus. Also notable are four smaller installations imbedded in floors at Oslo’s Gardermoen Airport.

The exhibition has been generously supported by Crafts Council Norway and the arts fund ‘Billedkunstnernes Vederlagsfond’.
