Jamila Drott´s first solo exhibition at the gallery. Drott´s works in metal operate on the border between painting and sculpture. Entering into dialogue with both traditions, she freely uses art historical, as well as pop- and subcultural references as a gameboard where various and often contradictory strategies can be contemplated, role-played and appropriated.
Drott’s sculptural paintings often resemble landscapes, topographical maps or satellite images; undefined terrains and territories. But these figurative associations never take a definitive form. At first glance, they present the possibility of unfolding another world, beyond their own materiality, but upon closer consideration they simultaneously establish themselves as 1:1 sculptural objects in the room.
