PRESSEMEDDELELSE

With their twisting and turning shapes they break with the rectangular formal lines of architecture bending perspectives and creating an uneven and dynamic state around them. The triangular shape plays a central role in her works as it becomes an unnatural element in our habitual spaces. As a reference point the triangle is unbalanced and jarring, directing our attention to the proportionate nature of our surroundings and the urban framework we live in.

Amalie Jakobsen uses colour almost as propaganda. Whether to scare us off or to lure us closer, colour plays a central role in visual communication. Flags of nations, commercials, warning signs and so on make use of our unconscious reaction to colour. In spite of slight cultural and social differences in the use of colours in visual communication from signs in streels to coca cola commercial reads globally. But by leaving figuration completely out of the equation Jakobsen only hints at intent leaving interpretation and understanding completely free and up to the emotions and preconceptions of the beholder.

Amalie Jakobsen was born in 1989 in Denmark. She lives and works in Copenhagen and Berlin. She graduated from Goldsmiths University of London in 2014. Her works have been exhibited at Efrain Lopez Gallery in Chicago, US, TwilSharp Gallery in Johannesburg (ZA); Breve Gallery, Mexico City, (MX) Bosse and Baum in London, UK. Amalie Jakobsen is featured in the 2015 publication Nordic Contemporary, published by Thames & Hudson Ltd.
