Karen Salicath Exhibition
This event has ended.
Danish artist Karen Salicath has built a reputation as a sculptor who produces works that induce relaxation. She has held solo exhibitions in London, New York and Athens.
The work for this exhibition, "The Sons of Gefjun", was inspired by Gefjun, a goddess in Scandinavian mythology. When the Swedish king fell in love with Gefjun, he promised her all of the land that she could dig up in one day. Gefjun asks her four sons to help out, but they were turned into bulls. The land that they brought back is said to be the large island in Copenhagen, and there is a lake of the same size and shape in the center of Sweden. According to legend, the sons symbolize the four elements of nature: water, fire, land and air. "The Sons of Gefjun" consists of independent units for each element, and the Water Room will be on display for this exhibition. In her sculptures, water stands for emotion and friendship.
The music and sound design for this exhibition was produced by American artist/sound designer Bob Rickets.
