Opening: Friday November 13th 17.00-21.00
Runa Vethal Stølen explore the border between chaos, order and perfection. Thin lines form three-dimensional drawings. Wire of steel and gold becomes milling jewellery sculptures where the exact composition creates order and soberness. Some of the pieces are covered in a layer of sand, glue and enamel. Overgrown formations with an exact and systematic inner structure.
Runa Vethal Stølen graduated from tog Oslo National Academy of the Arts 2009. Since then she has exhibited many times both in Norway and abroad. The exhibition at Four is Runa Vethal Stølens first in Sweden.
“I’m interested in nature’s microcosms and chaos theory, the things we surround ourselves with all the time but have difficulty understanding.”
