As part of the FIAC/Hors les Murs, Galerie Maria Wettergren is pleased to present the textile installations Tentative Spaces by Danish artist Cecilie Bendixen on the Place de la Concorde, under the Parisian sky, from 16 to 20 October 2019. A solo exhibition by the artist, Phenomena, will be held concurrently at the Galerie Maria Wettergren until 9 November 2019.
The textile installations Tentative Spaces UNDER / OVER, made of textile, bamboo and rope, reflect Cecilie Bendixen’s study of different architectural expressions, born from the question: What poetry is hidden within certain principles of construction? In UNDER, the carrying structures are situated underneath the textile, stretching the fabric out in all directions in order to enclose a large volume of air, creating double-curved surfaces everywhere. In OVER, the structural supports are found above the textile, allowing the fabric to move freely and an interaction with the wind. With its transparent texture and lightness, Tentative Spaces establishes a condition, a state of mind, as much as a physical space.
