EYE TALK 2 – JETTE CLOVER, KATRIINA FLENSBURG
February 18 – March 5, 2017, Gallery A-huset, Uppsala, Sweden.
The two artists introduced their first Eye Talk exhibition at the Dutch Textile Festival OEQC in Maastricht in 2015. Plans of touring this exhibition with ten large pieces from each artist had to be cancelled when the OEQC organization announced that they had lost Katriina’s entire collection.
Collegial support was crucial for Katriina to return to her creative work after her devastating loss. Jette initiated a new dialogue, but this time with work in a smaller scale.
Due to the geographical distance their dialogue has taken place virtually, each artist challenging the other visually by e-mailing images of new pieces for the other one to respond to. The resulting 24 poster size pieces are presented in this exhibition together with a large piece from each artist.
