Camilla Løw Nerves and Muscles 20/8 - 26/9

Camilla Løw often retreats to the simplicity of geometric shapes.But, for her fourth exhibition at Elastic Gallery entitled  Nerves and Muscles she has let the foundation be set in the realm of intimacy  and subjectivity.

Løw takes on a more figurative approach by applying freer lines and working more intuitive. The sculptures bare traces from objects in her studio: tools, strings, clothes to name a few. They are placed on top of Plexiglas and then sprayed over: the objects leave their individual imprint on the cold surface.

In the show we are also met by a pair of steel hands. These rather illustrate the body, or the self than traces on a material. The sensation of these works together can also be seen in previous  handcrafted objects and sculptures made by Camilla Løw.

With all of the works specifically made for the space at Gävlegatan 10B, Løw moves into a different way of approaching her sculptures. She  forces us as spectators to maneuver arround the space and the objects in order to fully experience them.
