–The weather is depicting where and how we move, gather, hide and stretch out.
In her sculptural and writing practice Ingrid Furre (b. 1983 in Stavanger) explores the (im)possibilities language and places can offer. Ingrid’s work resembles nesting, a continual human and animal activity. Where to meet is a recurring question, an evolving material and conceptual issue that becomes a sculptural proposal of abstract character. Furre's work at OBRA evokes a place located in between language and sculpture, the material surfaces, the skin, a site for relaxation and cleansing.
Ingrid Furre graduated from Malmö Art Academy in 2013, and has since exhibited at Dan Gunn, Berlin; Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm; Vigeland-Museet, Oslo among others. She received the Aase & Richard Björklund stipendium from Malmö Konstmuseum in 2014 and Edstrandska Stiftelsen Stipendium in 2015. She was the receiver of the Iaspis Residency in Mexico City in 2015 and a six month residency at Cite des Arts, Paris in 2018.This show at OBRA is her first solo exhibition at the gallery.
