Sidsel Carré: Åndedrættet – The Breath

Thursday March 21, 19:00 – 22:00, Herðubreið café/gallery

Sidsel Carré (DK) will show new paintings and works in progress, which have been developing during her residency at Skaftfell in February and March.

The café will be open, and everyone is welcome. 

About the artist:

Sidsel Carré (DK) studied painting at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and graduated in 2015. During her residency at Skaftfell Sidsel has been working on a new series of paintings, using watercolour on paper. Thematically the series deals with tensions of the immaterial, the porosity of fact and fiction, and the process which collects itself into a piece of work, a painting. 

“We live in a fragile era concerned with finitude and acceleration, as if time were a fading light. The paintings address light and colour, challenging the idea that the night is made of another material than the day. Night is made of colour. It is lighted. The night is not the narrative of disappearance and not a place of secrecy.”
