jag lyssnar under tyget

Liv Zachrisson
jag lyssnar under tyget

26 November 2015 - 3 January 2016

The exhibition will be officially opened by art critic Lars Elton.

The installation jeg lyssnar under tyget (I Listen from under the Cloth) is multi-faceted. It concerns listening, both to the world and to oneself, but also deals with themes such as vulnerability, accessibility and strength. A cloth can be seen as a membrane between an external world and an internal space; it can be a tool for listening, either to oneself or to the world outside.

Through visual and aural expressions, Zachrisson explores different forms of existential presence. The work combines the media of photography, painting, drawing, sculpture and audio-recorded text. The variously interfaced elements create unusual connections, yet also work to unify the expression in the exhibition space. To quote Anne Karin Jortveit:

‘…our body knows what it is doing. It remembers, it has experience. Liv Zachrisson uses this fundamental insight and develops it in her art; she herself trusts that the body knows where it is going in the artistic process. (…) Each and every artistic idea requires a certain medium. As an artist, Zachrisson takes this seriously, working in a borderland between technology and craft. Her works are thus enigmatic yet well defined – inscrutable yet material. (…) It is not simply a matter of an artwork, but equally much an artistic way of thinking.’
lyden av stillhet, stillheten i lyd – en introduksjon til Liv Zachrissons kunst (our translation)

Liv Zachrisson (b. 1958 Malmö) lives and works in Oslo. She studied at the Norwegian National Academy of Craft and Art Industry and at the National Academy of Art (1991). Her numerous solo exhibitions have been held at venues such as Vigelandsmuseet, Bergen Kunsthall, Ram Galleri, Unge Kunstneres Samfund, Agder Kunstnersenter and Galleri Rostrum in Malmö. She has also participated in group shows in Norway and in the Nordic countries, some of which have been at Oslo Kunstforening, Kunstnerforbundet in Oslo, Galleri Nylist- ásafni∂ in Reykjavik and Galleri Overgaden in Copenhagen. Her works have been featured in the juried exhibitions Høstutstillingen and Østlandsutstillingen.
