This event has ended.

Margrethe Aanestad presents “HEREIN,” an installation for Open Source Gallery. Aanestad’s work explores drawing as a spatial medium, a way of defining the undefinable. Paper, as well as color, becomes an important and active spatial agent in her work, helping the drawings to transcend the two-dimensional format and become finely-tuned sculptural, architectural objects. Her process reveals time and presence through a visibly tactile surface that contains small hints and traces of imperfection combined with minimal expression. Combining her drawings with objects, such as styrofoam and laminated boards, Aanestad builds and constructs assemblages that enhance and respond to the drawings and vice versa. Her sculptures investigate what happens between the materials that she juxtaposes in stacked and piled variations, exploring what is seen and not seen. Tension between physical and imaginative spaces, tactility and immateriality, the actual and the implied is examined. Aanestad responds in a site-specific way to the space, transmitting personal presence and revealing negotiation between intention, intuition, and coincidence. She manipulates the contrasting expressions of flatness and spatial forms, using nuances that allow for framing and investigating drawing as a spatial action.

Aanestad (b. 1974, Stavanger, Norway) Aanestad explores drawing and sculpture as a way to define and transform space. She is inspired by the Norwegian light and atmosphere, which is often reflected in her installations. Aanestad has recently participated in The National Autumn Exhibitions in at the Kunstnernes Hus in Norway (2011), as well as Between Mountain at Open Source Gallery (2012). Her work was shown in a solo show at Untitled Art Fair in Miami (2012) and will be exhibited at Des Pacio De La Cruz Gallery in Costa Rica (2013) and at Interno4 in Bologna, Italy (2013).
