Camilla Low at DCA: 2 February – 31 March 2008

The first major solo exhibition in the UK of Camilla LØw. Newly commissioned work created specifically for the DCA galleries, shown together with recent sculpture made over the last three years. 

LØw's sculptures transcend traditional modes of display - works are clustered, stacked, suspended or leant against the wall.

They combine a seemingly casual presentation with refined, tightly crafted and considered use of colour, surface and form.

Camilla's playful yet rigorous response to the legacies of Constructivism and Minimalism make for enigmatic geometric riddles that transform the DCA space.

The newly commissioned work, produced locally, using concrete were presented alongside works in wood and Perspex. The exhibition was developed in response to the space.

The title Straight Letters indicates a particular interest in the relationship between typography, architecture and sculpture.

The idea of exploiting the potential of a given space; whether that is a mark on paper, an intervention within architecture or sculpture within a white-walled space, highlights the relationship between the two and three dimensional.

Born in Oslo in 1976, Camilla LØw studied at Glasgow School of Art and, having lived in San Francisco, has now returned to Norway, where she has just received the prestigious Statoil Prize for the country's best emerging artist.

A limited edition print by the artist was produced at DCA and a full colour publication is also available which documents the installation alongside important works from the last five years and will be available in March.

Exhibition supported by:
Scottish Arts Council, Office of Contemporary Art, Oslo and Sutton Lane, London.
