People who have saved this event:


Ikon is pleased to present a new exhibition of work by A K Dolven, one of Norway’s most prominent artists.


Through a variety of media - painting, photography, film and sound - she is concerned essentially with the representation of sublime natural forces. In this respect she identifies with the renowned nineteenth century Norwegian painter Peder Balke (1804 - 87), whose work is also included in the exhibition. In his landscapes of the far north, Balke’s human subjects are dwarfed by their circumstances, as small figures in the landscape; Dolven is more overtly philosophical, dealing with the nature of perception and the subconscious functioning of memory and emotions. It is significant that she focuses on densely multisensory situations, in which her main subject is at once very present and resonant with lost time.
