Iron Drop

”Iron Drop” er en stedspecifik skulptur som er skabt til Skovsnogen Artspace. ”Skulpturen er en stor 3D rombe som er lavet af fire forskellige metal arter, rustfri stål, jern, kobber og messing.
”Irop Drop” hænger ned fra et stort egetræ i en kæde som en overdimensioneret dråbe, og ligner fra afstand et flyvende prisme eller en kæmpe kokon. Spillet mellem træet, naturen og objektet giver en følelse af fremmedhed, en enorm kontrast, der får en til at se på træet, barken og omgivelserne på en ny måde, Skulpturen fremhæver således naturens storslået hed.
Materialerne som skulpturen er lavet af vil ændre karakter og udseende i kraft af at de er ude i naturen og udsættes for vind og vejr (specielt regn), jernet vil ruste, kobberet begynder at irre, og skulpturen blive smukkere og smukkere i kraft af at den får patina. Årstiderne kommer også til at spille en stor rolle for oplevelsen af skulpturen ”Iron Drop”.
 

 

LOUISE SPARRE

By Lisbeth Bruhn, Cand.Mag

Louise Sparre works with art in an expanded field: a concept of art that transcends the classical categorization of the media, which in Louise’s case often includes a sensual involvement of the viewer.

Since 2003, when Louise Sparre graduated from the Funen Art Academy, she has experimented with examining and challenging the artistic media with a main focus on and interest in sculpture and collage.

Her works are characterized by a tireless study of our sensory experience of the world around us. With a strong will and great courage, she leads the viewer into this poetic, but also contradictory universe. A universe which holds ground-breaking psychedelic sculptures that basically relate to the traditional criteria for sculptures, but in the process transform into unrecognizable creatures of photo collages, fur upholstery, and feather attached floating objects. These, often hanging, abstract sculptures are like mirror-less and shade-forming prisms; through their tactility, color, and material composition invoke so much attention that the room is filled out.

The objects hover between the artificial and the organic, the figurative and the abstract - somewhere between 2D and 3D.

Louise Sparre challenges the viewer's perception of what a sculpture/collage is. She stages sculptures and collages almost as installations rather than individual works. These installations are causing sensory-based experience with the viewer as an actor.
