Sculpture Reziprok by Sigrun Olafsdottir

The 76. exhibition "Stille Kraft" at foryouandyourcustomers shows sculptures and graphic art by the Icelandic artist Sigrún Ólafsdóttir

Sigrún Ólafsdóttir's work primarily revolves around the balance between opposites - the brief moment when both are equally strong (or weak): the pause between inhaling and exhaling, between ebb and flow, between centrifugal force and gravitational pull (e.g. when the ball which is thrown up " lingers" in the air for a moment). However, the artist is not only exploring balance itself, but rather how it is created. Over time, the interaction of individual forces has become her most important theme. The drawings are also constructions of movement and balance. Because they are two-dimensional, they initially appear harmless, but in fact this is deceptive. Their dynamics are only revealed when you take the time to "read" the drawings. The movement arises in the mind, and is then all the more intense.
– Cornelieke Lagerwaard, art historian
