Exhibition opening on Thursday 15 November at 6 pm. 


Heidi Kennedy Skjerv's exhibition consists of structure and colors. Horizontal and vertical lines drawn with colored marker on paper. Tegnerforbundet looks forward to showing the uniqueness that occurs when the combination of color contrasts is composed in geometric grid patterns.


Repetition as a necessity.

What the hand needs to fill the time. 

A condition that requires action. 

An inner logic, a separate inherent force that carries the events forward.

The healing power of tracking - repetition. 

When tracing in the present, past and future are linked together and make sense. 

The paper, media, scale and format change as I move on.

The colors, the tracks, are intuitive.

A clarity that is just a state without question.

A focused presence, or a monotonous absence.

The bond that lies in the ground. 


An immediate action / construction.

To bind or gather time to a greater or lesser degree.

Thus expressed -

this state is expressed through action on the way to the work. 

The transformation of work into place. - Heidi Kennedy Skjerve
