Galleri Christoffer Egelund is proud to present MAPS, which is the first solo show with the Danish artist Tilde Grynnerup in the gallery’s Project Room.
Grynnerup started working on MAPS, when she received a commission for a reinterpretation of a map of Copenhagen for the Copenhagen Culture Night poster 2020. She was then inspired to begin a new series of works, that rethink the concept of the theme MAPS.
In the hands of Grynnerup the scientific, objective traditions of the map are overturned and reversed to the chaotic universe of the human feelings and experiences. Color and form become free elements, coming together to investigate the abstractions of the emotional experience and to brawle with the impossible task of creating an emotional navigation map.
The room of the exhibition transforms to a landscape of new reliefs, sculptures and mobiles, where the artist leads us through the dream of understanding ourselves and the world we live in. It is a dream full of hope, beauty and humor but also a tale of memory loss and the complexities of the small moments that are all parts of our existence. You will experience an illusion of order.
The beautiful, playful and organized compositions signals an immediately transparency as well as an aesthetic simplicity, and you are reminded, that it is an almost impossible task for the human eye to recognize an imaginary emotional-experience-mapping.
The sculptures are made in her father’s carpentry, that is surrounded by forest in the country side. The sculptures are made of residual wood pieces and are completed in Grynnerup’s city studio in Copenhagen. In a way you sense that both craftsmanship and medium are cyclical in nature.
Tilde Grynnerup has a background in textile design and is based in Copenhagen. She works with a long line of different mediums. Grynnerup has participated in two group shows at Galleri Christoffer Egelund; Summertime and Shapes, both in 2020. She also exhibited at Kunstsalonen, Frederik’s Salon, Straagaard Art Galleri and abroad in London’s Kana Studios. In 2018 Tilde Grynnerup was nominated for the Danish Design Awards and has gained great international attention.
