Präsentiert auf Liste Showtime Online:
Anchored in serious issues such as absence and decay, mixed with a slightly humorous approach, Lydia Hauge Sølvberg unfolds a complex artistic body of work both open and mythical. Hauge Sølvberg works within an expanded field of sculpture in a wide range of media such as plaster, concrete, wood, bronze, clay, video, and text. Her works often originate from culturally well-established narratives and myths interlinked with her own personal tales. Hauge Sølvberg’s distinctive and narrative universe unfolds in what seems to be observations of quotidian objects like the leaves from a chestnut tree, a rope thimble, or a peeled orange. With an intuitive approach, figurative elements are formed through technical and material investigations. The meeting between the detailed presence of a drawing and the weight of the monotonous materials produces a poetic seriousness. A dualism that can either be seen as habitual registrations of the artist’s surroundings, or uncanny observations. Recent exhibitions include Kunstnerforbundet, Oslo, 2020 (solo); Galleri B-OA (solo), 2019; Bianca D’Alessandro, Copenhagen, 2018 (solo).
