The work consists of sheets of paper made of porcelain to fit onto the structures in the space. They seem to have been caught and spread by gusts of wind, and momentarily derive their shape from clinging to walls and corners. An idea originally developed for a windy archway in Dublin Castle, the installation is reimagined and remade for Ventura Lambrate, taking on other meanings in this very different space and context.
Oslo-based visual artist Lillian Tørlen makes site-specific works and installations that encourage people to stop and re-evaluate their surroundings — sometimes through subtle interventions in the space; at other times, with striking contrasts and juxtapositions. Born in Ålesund, Tørlen holds an MA from Oslo National Academy of the Arts and a BA from Central St Martins, London. She has exhibited throughout Europe.
