… ( inner sunrise)

Gudny Rosa Ingimarsdottir

Vernissage jeudi 24.10.19, de 18h à 21h
Exposition 25.10.19 > 21.12.19

Gudny Rosa Ingimarsdottir crée des oeuvres sur papier qui combinent une multitude de techniques et de mediums. Sa pratique est simultanément abstraite et figurative ; les motifs, formes, mots et lignes créent de fragiles compositions à la fois évocatrices et ouvertes à diverses interprétations. Ses outils ne sont pas tant les crayons que le fil et l’aiguille, le couteau et les ciseaux et une large gamme de papiers – du papier calque et carbone au papier-peint. Elle travaille ces papiers et les assemble une couche après l’autre. Les surfaces sont partiellement translucides, les lignes sont aussi fines que possibles, le blanc et les tons délicats prévalent, les formes organiques s’enroulent sur elles-mêmes. Le vide qui sous-tend les formes et serpente entre les lignes confère un silence qui permet de se concentrer sur les compositions. L’intériorité du silence apporté par l’artiste crée un retrait par rapport à l’action ou à la narration. Elle fait apparaitre le langage à travers l’usage de phrases isolées, montrant ses limites comme moyen de communication. Ses œuvres et ses objets tentent d’incarner l’indicible. Cette retenue donne une harmonie à la fois personnelle et universelle au travail de Gudny Rosa Ingimarsdottir, une force délicate empreinte de vide et de doute.

… ( inner sunrise)

Gudny Rosa Ingimarsdottir

Opening Thursday 24.10.19, 6pm – 9pm
Exhibition 25.10.19 > 21.12.19

Gudny Rosa Ingimarsdottir creates works on paper that combine a multitude of techniques and media. Her art is simultaneously abstract and figurative. Patterns, forms, words and lines create fragile compositions that are suggestive and open to many interpretations. Her tools are not so much pencils but rather needle and thread, knife and scissors, and a diverse range of papers – from tracing and carbon paper to wallpaper – which she works with and brings together one layer at a time. Her surfaces are partly translucent, the lines are as delicate as humanly possible, white and careful tones prevail, organic forms turn away into themselves. The emptiness found under the forms and between the lines gives the compositions the silence needed to focus. The silence that the artist creates comes from within; it is a departure from actions and narratives. She uses language in single sentences, showing its limits as a means of communication. Her artworks and objects try to visualise that which is not spoken of. This restraint gives the work of Gudny Rosa Ingimarsdottir an equilibrium that is personal and universal at the same time; a delicate force pregnant with emptiness and doubt.

Description
Since 2016, Irène Laub Gallery exhibits established and emerging artists in Brussels and in a selection of international art fairs. Our represented artists are actively committed to questioning social, political and architectural spaces. They present a very diverse body of work – inculding installation, video, sculpture, painting and drawing – and display pure and powerful aesthetics. The gallery is intended as an adaptable experimentation space, allowing the artists to stretch the boundaries of their chosen discipline, either by testing and distorting the physical frame of the work itself, or by exploring its significance in the social sphere. In 2018, the gallery moved to a new location and developed an ambitious exhibition programme, dedicated to further a productive dialogue between international artists, curators and institutions.
