A L E M S E T by Heidi Øiseth
Alemset,means backcloths,backdrops. Everybody has a story that is a reason for what you say,think and belive in.
My picture “Behind the layers, you will maybe find the surface” “carry” this story.
Backclothes are carpets, my carpets are carpets in the symbolic meanings of the layers of time and understanding, about the stories we hide under the carpet, the stories that make us to who we are.
My work look like old rugs, charcoal and ink on fabrics.
In these works,I present the textures and structures that are reminiscent of deposits and experience material, that is set in a system.
Material usage is limited to unprepared cotton canvas, ink, charcoal and pastelchalk.
Structures located above the soft ink deposits, creating contrasts which
different layers are covered by something else. Through layer upon layer of bar and line created poetic images that offer the viewer the possibility of a separate room for memories and emotions. A room where the unknown are woven together with the recognizable.
The images are dark, almost gloomy, but also emotional, in the way thay carry performativ lines of meditation.
My work are an intuitive, meditative process where the
action becomes a conduit for thoughts and feelings. They may be about
melancholy, anxiety, anger or powerlessness, and this is expressed through
a grinding process with no room for
Using ink on raw canvas, there is no room for corrections.
