FIREWORKS ETC.

LAURIDS GALLÉE

EXHIBITED IN TABLEAU, OCTOBER 2021

LAURIDS GALLÉE RESEARCHES THE CONNECTION BETWEEN DENMARK AND THE NETHERLANDS THROUGH THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS. WITH ‘FIREWORKS ECT.’ HE REFLECTS ON THESE INTERNATIONAL BONDS FORMED BY THE TRADE OF FLOWERS, THE STORIES, SAGAS, AND MYTHS THAT WE SHARE WHICH CREATES SHARED HERITAGE AROUND FLOWERS, AND THE INTERSECTIONS BETWEEN ART, COMMERCE AND CRAFT.
[READ MORE] INSPIRED BY MARQUETRY TECHNIQUES OF THE AUSTRIAN & BAVARIAN ‘BAUERNMÖBEL’ WHICH HE FELL IN LOVE WITH WHILE VISITING HIS GRANDPARENTS AS A CHILD IN AUSTRIA, THE NEW AGE MARQUETRY THAT HE CREATES, FOCUSES ON STORYTELLING AND VISUAL NARRATIVES, OVER PRACTICAL FUNCTION. ILLUSTRATIVE OXYMORONIC STYLE IS GROUNDED IN THE FOLKLORIC INFLUENCES THAT PERMEATED THE FURNITURE OF HIS PAST. LAURIDS EXPLORES A WHOLE NEW RANGE OF MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUES, USING INK & LASER-CUTTING TECHNIQUES TO DISPOSE OF COLORS ON WOOD. HE SEES THESE PIECES MORE AS DRAWINGS THAN OBJECTS; WORKING IN A STYLE REMINISCENT OF ROCOCO, THE PIECES GROW OUT OF THE IMAGES THAT HE DRAWS. IN THIS WAY, THE ITEMS WILL ALMOST MANIFEST LIKE PHYSICAL ALLEGORICAL DRAWINGS. NARRATIVES OF OPPOSITES ARE EMBEDDED INTO SHAPES THAT FORM A NAIVE, YET ABUNDANT STORY OF THEIR OWN. IN THE SAME TRUCK TABLEAU USES TO IMPORT FLOWERS FROM THE NETHERLANDS, THE FINISHED PIECES WILL TRAVEL TO DENMARK.
