Welcome to the exhibition opening on Thursday 26 April at 6 pm.

Layered structure sudden collapse

No matter what format Ane Landfald uses, her drawings are filled with a rare intensity and presence. In Landfald's drawings, we join through space and landscape in search of traces of the ram. 

I am, in short, interested in movements in the earth's crust and tones of gray: between dark gray and almost completely black.
The soil surface is organized in layers. At different time intervals, the earth's crust undergoes major and minor changes, it is deeply malleable; even snowflakes can leave imprints, it only takes time for them to appear.
When I draw I build the image through layers. I draw over the entire drawing several times and do not stop until the image is almost filled, as the subject is about to disappear in darkness. At this stage, I can only work on the drawing on days when there is sun or bright daylight outside the studio window.
In the last couple of years I have read and written a lot about soil movements in general, and especially a clay landslide that took place in Verdal in 1893. The geology can be read as a timeline, and the earth that collapsed in 1893 was deposited after the last ice age: A white and several thousand meters thick cover melted and disappeared, but left a bluish-black and clay soil that can collapse into a soupy consistency, without warning, in the middle of the night, when everyone is asleep. Ane Landfald)
