Alfabet Finissage with Marthe Ramm Fortun
17 Jan 2020
London, United Kingdom
Belmacz is delighted to announce Camilla Løw's second solo show at the gallery.
Coinciding with Løw's forthcoming publication 'outdoors utendørs', the exhibition introduces the idea of transferral — outdoor sculpture elements within an enclosed space.
Alfabet refers to the book by Danish poet Inger Christensen (1935 – 2009), where each chapter represents a single letter. With this system the artist follows a self-imposed order, simultaneously gaining a sense of release. Just as each of Christensen’s poems are formed from symbols and associations, letters enable Løw.
Walking through Alfabet gives a possibility to submerge into optical structures and the coded vortex of language. The viewer is able to interact with, and counter pose a polyhedral structure which incorporates a chess board with its figures.
Suspended sculptures give the notion of movement — circumventing ordinary sequences and ratios whereby steel, aluminium and bronze achieve effortless subtlety.
Born in 1976 in Born, Norway. She graduated with a BA in Fine Art, Glasgow School of Art.
