Exhibition opening on Thursday 21 March at 6 pm.
Line Anda Dalmar takes us into memories of places and landscapes and explores time and space. Nature and changes in nature is a recurring theme, and her work often originates from field studies in unknown landscapes. Dalmar works in various media, but this exhibition focuses on drawing.
I draw because I'm afraid to forget. That is the starting point for this exhibition. It is about abstract experiences that are difficult to document: memories of places, thoughts, time and situations. Through drawing, I look for key fragments that gives the whole a meaning.
Landscape is a motif that I keep coming back to. I think of landscapes as frames that we fill with content, as containers for our stories. They are projection surfaces, not only for our own stories, but also for the structures - visible and invisible, which determine the premises for how we live and have lived. I am concerned with what elements are stored in my visual memory and how they become a story I later experience as a memory. - Line Anda Dalmar
