Red Blue Motion Totem by Malene Landgreen, 2010

‘Red Blue Motion Totem’ is the meaningful name of Malene Landgreen’s current exhibition at Esbjerg Kunstmuseum in her home country Denmark. The installation was realised on the occasion and celebration of the 100th birthday of Danish painter Richard Mortensen. With her giant wall-paintings combined with mirrored columns Malene Landgreen pays tribute to the expressive work of the jubilee and created an optical illusion which dissolves the central perspective and splits the space into striking colour fields – one could call it ’3d-cubism’.

The exhibition will be open until 5 September 2010.

The Danish artist Malene Landgreen is well-kown for her special appreciation for colours and her delicate composition has been integrated in several architectural projects, such as Ålborg Airport, Novo Nordisk, Frederiksberg Gymnasium and Danmarks Radio City in Ørestaden.

Her latest exhibition ‘Color State’ at Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen is a rather loud and expressive installation of colour-intense sequences which spans over six exhibition rooms.

For those who won’t have the chance to visit the exhibition until 20th February, here some impressions.

“My work derives meaning from the fact that the uncertain, abstract, unformulated, chaotic and inharmonious, no less than the well-ordered, well-considered and flawless, always relates proportionally to something else. No matter how incomprehensible and ungraspable it might be, indeed precisely because it is. It’s all about relations and proportions. That applies in art, in architecture and in life”, says Malene Landgreen.
