Kroppsfält by Olof Inger
With Kroppsfält, Inger creates a connection between time and spatiality with a grouping of scattered compressed triangular forms called Container. Connected by extended cables and immersed in the soothing soundscape of White noise, the bulky objects form a broken geometry – a cosmos that balances and transforms itself depending on the perspectives of viewers. Loaded with energy, rhythm and effortlessness, each individual Container relates to viewers’ senses and to the human body.
Meditations series by Olof Inger
Inger produced Meditations, a series of drawings, during meditation exercises focusing on concentration and presence. Heavy black lines meander across standardized print paper cut to 36x36tum, a measurement dictated by Inger’s physical range of control during meditation. By systematically and regularly having the line meet at beginning and ending point each drawing forms a unique loop.
