Overview

Marit Helen's "Just Now" with Sandnes Art Association builds on the artist's exhibition in Vestfold Art Center in autumn 2018. 

Rainwear in new costume
The exhibition will consist of two larger monumental works, 3 smaller wall-based works, and small textiles in frame. The materials Marit Helen Akslen uses are usually from mass-produced objects, often clothes. One of the things that characterizes her work is that they are made up of a lot of smaller parts or fragments of different kinds. This is how the material is used as building blocks in compositions that turn into new stories. In Sandnes, it is mainly rainwear that is the basic material; pieces of used rainwear are sewn together again with machine seams. This is basically a simple technique, but it becomes very laborious and physically challenging when the works become as monumental as what we will see here. The material also has a symbol value, since rainwear can be linked to protection against (hard) weather, while the colors (yellow, orange) can give associations to inflatables, plastics, life jackets, etc.
