Tara Donovan exhibition at Louisiana Contemporary, Humlebaek – Denmark

December 11th, 2013 by retail design blog

The American artist Tara Donovan once said that her vision is to “be an alchemist and to transcend the material”. Her most recent exhibition at the Louisiana Contemporary in Denmark is certainly a magical concoction of organic sculptural forms and spellbinding landscapes. Though trial and error, she transforms everyday materials (ranging from metal film tape to cardboard plates) into abstract patterns and shapes. Clouds and corals are just some of the ethereal structures that are the inspiration behind her work.

Donovan selects objects in one material that she fuses, layers, folds and repeats. They are created in situ or assiduously adapted to the areas in which they are placed. In doing so, she confronts spatial expectations of ordinary objects that have been taken for granted. This particular exhibition presents eight of her works from 2004 to 2012, which are installed in the Column Hall and the Large Hall on the bottom floor of the East Wing of the museum. The crystalline growths that she has sculpted make the museum resemble an enigmatic limestone cave, instantly altering the aura of the place.

Donovan’s exhibition will run at the Louisiana Contemporary until 28 July. Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Gammel Strandvej 13, DK-3050 Humlebaek, Denmark
