Isa Eriksson: Oceans of time

23.5 - 15.6. 2024

We are pleased to present Isa Eriksson's debut exhibition Oceans of Time. The opening reception with the artist present will be on Thursday, May 23, from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM.

The exhibition explores the passage of time and the minor signs that testify to past epochs. The layers of the earth tell of how life has been broken down and arisen again, compressed into silent stories of feet and paws that have trodden before. In these signs, thoughts appear about all that has been and is yet to come.

In Isa Eriksson's sculptures, time converges. The clay morphs into scenes from life and into time arcs that stretch towards infinity. Continental plates that divide coexist with fragments from life-altering moments: a car journey, a choir, a dance. These sculptures remind us that life is a continuum. Eternity intertwines with the present, the semi-permanent with the entirely temporary.

Isa Eriksson (b. 1998) is based in Gothenburg and received her bachelor's degree in ceramics from HDK Valand in 2022. Her work has previously been presented in group exhibitions at places such as Höganäs Museum and Gothenburg Art Museum, but Oceans of Time marks her first solo exhibition.

Through her ceramic sculptures, Isa Eriksson discusses existential questions. The touching is at the center, the sensitive and the elusive. The sculptures portray everyday situations where people's inner lives leak out into an external existence, and the characters' minds' fragility is reflected in the ceramic material's inherent fragility.

The gallery's art association, Konstsällskapet Våga Se, annually awards several art scholarships to promising artists. Isa Eriksson was one of the scholarship recipients in 2022, receiving 10,000 SEK and a scholarship exhibition. In connection with the opening reception, Konstsällskapet Våga Se organizes a summer get-together!
