Some Sunsets don’t Set

Ellinor Lager

10.03.2018 - 24.03.2018


Ellinor Lager's work occurs in a field of crossing and sometimes contradictory practises and traditions. Easily one could call these sculptural, in the sense that they show bodies or formations in space. These bodies have a tangible and obvious materiality in fabric, bronze or porcelain. But here are also text or at least letters and others signs. Somewhere here Hélène Cixous is giving birth to text. There are ongoing activities, sewing and polishing. Perhaps crocheting. The crochet creates sense, and sentences. The words text and textile have the same root. But before it gets too homely - this is art, not home decoration.

Ellinor Lager's work is to be read and confronted. She short circuits incompatible traditions, culturally coded in sex. In this bang it is easy to have your fingers burned. She takes it in stride.
