This new exhibition showcases interrelated bodies of work from two artists: ‘Cachoeiras’ by Eigil Nordstrøm from Unit G Gallery, and ‘Acreage’ by Gili Lavy from FieldWorks Gallery.

About

Both artists explore the idea of space and atmosphere through their chosen mediums and challenge their perceived environments; they focus on how sites are created, interrupted, transformed and valued. They fabricate new surroundings out of old ones, expressing their own perceptions of landscapes, whilst leaving the final meaning or context up to the viewer to interpret.

In his new body of work ‘Cachoeiras’, Eigil took as its starting point, compositions created from the interior of a small wooden box to explore light as a cascading force of nature. Seeping through the cracks in the woodwork is the colourful light of the Brazilian outback, retained in his memory after a visit to Chapada Diamantina last year. The constructed space functions as a container that allows light to be reimagined as a viscous material, mingling with vague memories of waterfalls and slippery rocks, and directing the application of paint.

In ‘Acreage’, a combination of large-scale video projections and sculptural installations, Gili focuses on the investigation of constructed sets based on collective histories at the moment of the aftermath, following disastrous events. She creates dystopian worlds which call into question the certainty of existential concepts by portraying constructed societal assemblies and shifting realities. Within lands rich of antiquities and full of memoire, her work exists in the gap itself and within the void, in order to unfold what can only be ultimately sensed rather than seen.
