My role: Curator in collaboration with Pamela Grombacher
Shades of colour, shades of light. Shades that mark the passage of time. Shades of nature, shades of architecture. Shades of control.
This duo exhibition by Caoimhe Kilfeather (IE) and Aske Sigurd Kraul (DK) features new, site-responsive works that form literal and figurative shades spanning the interior and exterior of se! udstillings- og projektrum in Aarhus, Denmark.
Woven metal screens, which are folded in intricate pleats that echo patterns found in nature, filter the gallery’s natural light. A row of shallow water basins line the floor, each filled with a different concentration of dye. Chemical solutions will separate over the course of the exhibition, with the shades of each component becoming more distinct over time. Works formed through weather exposure and
as allusions to functional elements of the building - rain paintings and a rotating brass sign inhabited by moss - can be understood as “shades” of natural and built environments. And more abstractly, each work carries a shade of the artistic process, a trace of the artists’ relationships with their materials as they negotiate between control and surrender.
