Spring Blossom 2017: artist talk Tiril Hasselknippe
Tiril Hasselknippe (b.1984, Arendal, Norway), lives in Oslo
Incorporating stairs, surfboards, cars, and anchors, the playful sculptures of Tiril Hasselknippe are rooted in a material world that is personal as well as reflective on our digital environment. Inspired by American West Coast Minimalism, where the synthetic and the sublime unite in perfectly abstract aesthetics, the artist creates a kind of science fiction formalism. Recent solo exhibitions of Hasselknippe were held at Kunstverein Braunschweig (2016), Tranen CCA (Gentofte, 2016), Bianca d’Alessandro (Copenhagen, 2015), OSL Contemporary (Oslo, 2015), Vestfossen Kunstlaboratorium (2014) and Inter Arts Centre (Malmö, 2013). Tiril Hasselknippe is represented by Galerie Drei (Cologne).
