Olof Inger observes forces that are constantly rotating and pulsating around us and within the human body. Inger's third solo exhibition at the gallery, In Put Out Put, consists of a new series sculptures and paintings.
As unique modules, the sculptures are put together through channels to create larger systems allowing them observe and test their environment. The objects are made to have the fundamental property of channeling energy - like bodies and/or antennas. Shaped and stitched out of material found in sport and sport facilities, Inger has used his personal history to create these objects.
Based on the sculptures, Inger presents a new series of paintings. As work of diagrams, the paintings embody motion of energy and the relationship between body orifices and structures. Colors represent external and internal parts as well as the interaction between these two. Round shapes demonstrate the ins and outs of the body, but can also be connected to external energy factors. The work reflects the idea that we are beings of energy and vibration, as small bodies of a greater universe.
Swedish text by Dan Wolgers will accompany this exhibition.
