Sheets of paper made of porcelain to fit onto the structures in the space by Lillian Tørlen

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.

Lillian Tørlen has a MA in Visual Art from Oslo National Academy of the Arts, and a BA in Art & Design Central St. Martin’s College of Art & Design in London. Tørlen makes site-specific works, and is interested in how people experience their immediate surroundings. Through sculptures and installations in various materials she invites the viewer to re-evaluate spaces, to pause and consider a chain of events, or to simply contemplate the dialogue happening between the piece and the space. Sometimes the pieces are subtle, almost blending into the environment, and not necessarily discovered straight away. Other times they stand out as a contrast, and are impossible to miss.
