Agnes Larsson 2015
Skin, - the container of our body, a carrier of life, holder of light, a surface with a depth. It is faded, solid and transparent. It is hardened, petrified and reshaped. As a construction it is strong but at the same time fragile. It has been transformed and time has left its mark.
Hair, - A remnant, a trace of life. Bleached, almost white. On its own very brittle, together it is strong with movement and vitality.
Aluminum, - often seen as light, polished and cold, yet it has been shaped with a surface soft like skin- tactile and warm, changing...ageing. Grey like stone.
Remains marks Agnes Larsson's second solo exhibition with Ornamentum. Larsson was born 1980 in Stockholm, Sweden. Awarded the AJF Emerging Artist Award for her previous body of work created of carbon in 2010, she earned her MFA in silversmithing and jewellery at Konstfack, Stockholm, under professors Ruudt Peters, Helena Lehtinen and Karen Pontoppidan.
