Trädens längtan efter storm

Sandra Norrbin
Trädens längtan efter storm

13 January - 13 February 2011

Welcome to opening Thursday 13 January 7 PM

SOFT gallery are proud to present a new project by Sandra Norrbin. Her site-specific sculptural installations have previously received widespread attention because of the way Norrbin merge idea, space and material into a new unity. Her projects deals with issues and problems related to the circuits the selected materials and objects are a part of. It also addresses the relationship between constructive and destructive elements. At SOFT gallery Norrbin has created a new project based on paper.

Norrbin are interested in the history of the material, she looks beyond its function and works with the material’s inherent qualities. The work can be seen as a frozen moment in a process that at any time can be continued. Conflicting forces are fighting against each other and provide an immediate and vital expression, as a materialized image of an inner conflict. The installation can be seen as a symbol of negative things that prevents one from moving on in life.These negative things or barriers may still be necessary steps along the way, and sometimes a storm is needed in order to make progress.

Sandra Norrbin (f.1976 in Vadstena, Sweden) lives and works in Oslo. Norrbin studied at the Art Academy in Trondheim. Norrbin has had solo exhibitions at Lautum Contemporary in Oslo, Galleri Verkligheten, Umeå, Sweden, and Supernova, Riga, Latvia. She has also participated in numerous group shows and has made public art projects in Porcelain Myra Kindergarten, and Sverresborg school, both in Trondheim.

The title is inspired by Edith Södergran’s poem “Färgernas Längtan,” from Poems (1916)

The exhibition is supported by Norske Skog Follum and Ramirent.
