27—28 April

Vilde Blom

Address: Grenseveien 91, 0663 Oslo
Floor: 2.
The studio is open Saturday 27 April from 12-17

In my artistic practice, I explore sculptures and materials that change over time or do not last, where themes such as time and control are central.

For a long time, I have worked with masses of hard candy as material, which I make by boiling sucrose, glucose and water. I have also started working with isomalt, a sweetener that is similar to hard candy, but is easier to shape. Both materials are affected by humidity, temperature and gravity. I explore how the sculptures change over time, with the idea that all stages of change are equally important in the experience of the sculpture.
