We are delighted to present Liesbeth Pallesen’s eighth solo exhibition with the Suzanne Biederberg Gallery. She again displays her originality and inventiveness in her new sculptures, drawings and installations, based on a continually evolving work process.
As Pallesen writes about her work in this exhibition:
I find it exciting to combine different working methods. The subject matter I found in nature, in small unpretentious everyday objects or something like a minor complaint, romanticization and the drudgery of the creative process.
Reconstructions, I call it—the re-enactment of what is seen and experienced, a renewed effort to question the fairy tales we unceasingly tell about ourselves.
For some of the works I took as a starting point some of my favorite artworks which I freely interpreted: Hallstätter See, Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller Landscape With Charcoal Burner, Willem Buyteweg (Landscape with) Saint Jerome, Joachim Patinier The Tower Of Babel, Pieter Bruegel the Elder The ‘Mopper’ (Jester) series a fragment from a portrait of Lovis Corinth
For the sculpture, which is called Reconstruction of a Sculpture With Rabbits I found inspiration in the book “Rowing etc.” by Els ter Horst
