Jenny Klein and Erika Trotzig - That's Not What I Meant
that’s not what I meant will present sculpture, photography and mixed media works exploring the experiences, memories and sensations accumulated by bodies and objects.
Works in the show express instability and vulnerability alongside absurdity and play. The shapes and silhouettes of the body reveal joy and strength as well as anxiety and a striving for balance. In Jenny Klein’s work the surfaces of paintings and photographs are developed by stitching and collage to create ambiguous, elemental forms. These additions change the emphasis of an image by stressing a particular area or outline, focusing on movement and the effort of balance or altering a silhouette. Erika Trotzig’s sculptural forms teeter on the brink of collapse or slumber, gathering their strength.
Materials are transient; lost and found, without memory but full of metaphorical resonances.
