Tobias Alexander Danielsson
The Lines that Defines
9 February – 12 March 2017

We are pleased to welcome you to the opening of an exhibition by Tobias Danielsson – his first solo show in Norway since completing his studies. The exhibition will be officially opened by Professor Jeannette Christensen from Oslo National Academy of the Arts/Art Academy.

At SOFT galleri, Danielsson presents new works made expressly for the space. His starting point is the room’s large window facing the street: a window that is a boundary for what is inside, but simultaneously opens it up to what is outside. The exhibition presents sculptures that are framed by a network construction extending from the floor to the ceiling.

The title, The Lines that Define, relates to the empty spaces that emerge in and between the works. Because the works in the exhibition relate to the body and to movement, the public enter into dialogue with the space. Danielsson sees the sculptures as frames undergoing change, as both inviting and excluding the viewer.

The works are made by binding and knotting textiles around constructions of metal and wood, after which they are painted and varnished. The surfaces become solid and able to support something, but at the same time fragile and vulnerable.

Danielsson has for some time been interested in the relation between objects and the human body. Through wall- and floor-based works bordering between sculpture, painting, installation and performance, he explores interactive elements that negotiate between work and body.

Tobias Alexander Danielsson (b.1987, Jönköping, Sweden) lives and works in Oslo. He studied at Oslo National Academy of the Arts/Art Academy, earning a master’s degree in 2015. His previous solo shows have been at Göteborg Art Society (2016), Pushwagner WindowBox Gallery in Oslo (2014), and Konsthall 1.0 in Jönköping (2011). He has participated in several group exhibitions, some of which are Offside at Akershus Kunstsenter (2016), Hanging Gardens at Kunsthall Grenland (2016) and The African Art Show at Kunstplass 10 (2015). I 2016, one of his works was purchased for the collection of the National Museum of Decorative Arts in Trondheim.

The exhibition has received support from Oslo Municipality
