Jansson Lothe, Linda

ceramics/Glass

work in the space between “High”- and “Low”-culture. Between Kitsch, Camp and Art, between modernity and nostalgia.
The electricity created between contrasts such as “beauty/attraction” and “ugly/repulsive” have always fascinated me.
My Objects can be purely sculptural or for everyday use, and sometimes a bit of both.
I have always collected esoteric odds and ends. From these objects I make casts or copies that I combine into new and surprising objects. To be open to what might occur during the process is paramount.
By fusing the old and the new I make new stories. Stories for me and you.

Planned projects and exhibitions

Me and my collegues will have an exhibition at Buskerud Artcenter in april 2018, about the Robotisation in society: Blue collar,White Collar. Filmmaker Mona J Hoel has made a film about the process towards the exhibition and the process at the workshop.
I have a collaboration with a dancer, that is my daughter. WE are having an exhibition, and perfomance at Tøysentralen galleri and Galleri Ramsmoen in Tynset , spring 2019.
I also work on a public comission at a Childrens school in Gothenburg, to be ready spring 2018.
