The book that comes out of Arvinius + Orfeus Förlag describes Petra Gipp's architecture using gypsum castings, tuschlaverings and poet Ann Jäderlund's words.
The exhibition of the 34 models takes place on sockets in gray beige carton cut into layers, many layers. One and a half tonne carton connects directly to the works, which gives the base, weight and anchorage in Liljevalch's sculpture hall. In addition, music by Pelle Ossler and Christian Gabel who gets the plaster and sculpture hall to lift, hover and unite.
"Petra Gipp's exhibition is certainly a short intermediate game, but we can assure our visitors that the sculpture hall has never been more poetic and loaded," explains Liljevalch's chief Mårten Castenfors.
"You can say that Gipp's works are as made for this context, and they are not getting worse because they belong to a book that is similar to a work of art. In this there are also newly written poems by poet Ann Jäderlund - could it be better?
Petra Gipp comments on his book art and his exhibition with the words:
The work on models is central. It is a method that, often rattling, approaches the architecture. Here the spatial sculptures can be framed by focusing on volume, elements and details, where everything is fused to one and the same thought. Seamlessly working with a material gives me an opportunity to make an architectural idea based on the material . That way, the spaces and volumes that I create can get a clarity, a personal voice.
Petra Gipp was born in 1967 and residing in Stockholm.
