- ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Solarized black photographs, luminous contours, body and geometric shapes. Sophia Kalkau’s works revolve around the relationship between the infinite, enormous, soft universe and the minuscule, enclosed space. Between void and fullness, hope and loss, human and celestial bodies. The exhibition includes the works Traces, Geometric Time, Ball Carrier’s Dream and Traces of some internal geometries. Works that hover between abstract and concrete, touching upon the relation between body and geometry.
Some of the photographic works appeared in Outgoing Vessel (Udgående Fartøj) by the Danish poet Ursula Andkjær Olsen published by Gyldendal earlier this year.
Sophia Kalkau graduated from the School of Sculpture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Since the mid-90’ies she has worked intensively with the photographic medium. Her photographic works constitute a performative investigation, a playful exploration of the classical media of sculpture and photography. Recurring themes in Kalkau’s works are transformation and metamorphosis, physical and floating mental states. Beyond the works’ formal structure runs a dream-based narrative, where phantasy and reality are not contradictory. Kalkau’s works touch upon the mystery of existence, of the world and of objects.
