Ingela Ihrman - Nocturn
Gasworks presents the first London solo exhibition by Malmö-based artist Ingela Ihrman. Moving freely between performance, sculpture and video, her work evokes the interconnected coexistence of seemingly humble life-forms such as invasive weeds, intestinal flora, extinct amphibians and nocturnal birds.
At Gasworks, Ihrman presents both newly commissioned and existing works, integrating them into a mythological arc inspired by the life (and imagined death) of Swedish nature filmmaker Jan Lindblad.
The exhibition opens with Green Paradise (2009), an early video work which offers a gastroscopy-like journey into the meandering digestive tract of a giant snake, imagining what Lindblad would have seen from inside the anaconda he famously wrestled during one of his filming expeditions to the South American rainforest.
Gasworks commissions are supported by Catherine Petitgas and Gasworks Exhibitions Supporters.Tickets: £13.00 (Concession: £3.50 )
