Ruins in Reverse

Camilla Malmquist's work is situated in the transition between nature and culture, and an ever-recurring theme is the man-made landscape. Malmquist works with different types of media that range in expression from drawing, watercolour, photography, various graphic techniques to room installations.

"Ruins in Reverse" is a project that has been ongoing for 3 years. The work is based on processed photographs of models, taken in the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Center in China and depicts what will become the 'new Shanghai'. These constructions, like countless others, are built as consumer goods; for so and torn.

Ruins in Reverse is a series of digital prints with pencil drawing, marker and Chinese woodcut.

Camilla Malmquist (b. 1981) has a master's degree from Oslo University College of Art and the China Art Academy in Hangzhou, China. She has previously participated in several group exhibitions. This autumn and winter she is participating in the group exhibition Naturescape, which has viewing locations at Lørenskog Hus, Galleri BOA and NNKS. The exhibition Ruins in Reverse is her first solo exhibition in Norway.
