Reflection can be seen as a physical phenomenon; it can also be understood in a figurative sense. At the cross- roads of these two perseptions arises the momentum for the [ree-fleks] exhibition. We wish to show the multiplicity of mirroring and reflection.
It is our ambition to reflect different emotions and concepts. We have worked with both the subject and the object in this process, thereby gaining insight and recognisability. With each of our starting points, we have sought inspiration in nature, the city, meditation and life to describe dilemmas in speed, moods, power balances, and passage of time. In this way, repetition, misunderstanding as an agent of understanding, adaptation, distortion and relation- ships express themselves in one major spatial reflection. All materialised in painting on paper, canvas and wall as well as textile, sculpture, installation and lighting installation. The artists featuring in this group exhibition have various backgrounds, educations and approaches. The pieces on show address a number of topics and ideas that have triggered the motivation and mode of expression in the works of the individual artists. Our aim with the exhibition – in which the works reflect the surroundings and are reflected in one another and the setting – is to show our very different ways of perceiving ‘mirroring’, by reflecting and involving them in various artistic approaches. All the artists represented in [ree-fleks] have worked on the specific theme of ‘mirroring’, and thus all the works are new.
Renate Borgen, Hanne Helms and Hanne Kjærsgaard Nielsen have curated [ree-fleks] and are exhibiting alongside Christina Augustesen, Ninna Bohn Pedersen, Hanne G. Grønlund, Mette Sandfær and Gitte Svendsen
