7 – 23 June 2019
Welcome to the exhibition opening on Friday 7 June at 18:00!
23 June 14.00 Guided tour of the exhibition by Mariia Drachuk
With the exhibition Between Matters Inside and Out, Mariia Drachuk presents a group of paintings produced during her first year as a newly graduated artist.
Mariia Drachuk’s practice is built around investigations of the vibrancy and activity within a non-hierarchical relationship actuating the painting. Materials are offered here as an equal participant in the artistic process and the very matter of discussion. The painting is proposed to be examined as the visual representation of a differing, open and performative dialogue, where the material properties of both – the artist and the medium, can fully convey their agency.
Mariia Drachuk holds a Master’s degree (2018) from the Academy of Fine Arts in Trondheim, and was after graduation granted a studio space at Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder. Drachuk participated earlier this year at the group show Unge inviterte 2019 at Landsforeningen Norske Malere. Between Matters Inside and Out is the artist’s first solo exhibition.
