WOOD WORKS

From the 6th-28th of November 2020

The first exhibition at Magenta gallery marks the opening and celebrates the collaboration with neighbour shop Strengelegen.

It shows a unique collection of wood sculptures from Strengelegen’s Torben Carlsen and wood collages and paintings from the gallery’s Tania Sloth.

Strengelegen has been in this spot for more than 20 years, selling vintage instruments and giving repair service, and has a lot of good memories from all the musicians that visited and played there.

The exhibition is a tribute to the shop and its history and will give the place a transition from being filled with old instruments to the new art space.

Torben Carlsen

The sculptures from Torben Carlsen are made from wood knots found in the forest of Italy. They have been cleaned, polished and some are placed on a foot with a brass stilk. The sculptures have very unique character-like faces that play with your imagination in an organic and abstract form.

Tania Sloth

The collection is based on organic shapes, material study and colour expressions from 2017-2020. The works are experimental studies of the wood as a canvas and component for the paintings. She uses wood and leather as building blocks to create textural collages.
