Camilla Løw, «Oscillations»
Located over the bar in the Marble Hall Camilla Løw have produced three light installations in neon tubes.
Camilla Løw (born 1976) studied at Glasgow School of Art from 1998 to 2001. Since then she has exhibited in Edinburgh, San Francisco, Paris, Malmø, Berlin, London, Bergen, New York, Cologne, Athens and Stockholm. In 2012, she staged a solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Oslo. Løw often works with strong primary colours and geometric shapes and structures.
She tends to use the basic shapes of circle, cube and triangle, and many of her sculptures are in materials such as perspex, steel, wood, plastic and concrete. Løw is represented at the galleries Elastic in Malmø and Jack Henley in New York, and her work has also been purchased for the Sculpture Park at the Henie-Onstad Art Centre through Kunstgaven (a project for the promotion of art), funded by Sparebankstiftelsen DNB. Løw was the first to receive the Statoil artists' scholarship in 2007.
At Sentralen, she has produced three light installations in neon tubes, located in the Marble Hall. The three metre long tubes are shaped like lightning and hang above the bar. The work's minimalistic purity of expression stands in stark contrast with the building's massive, baroque architecture.
The work has been given the title Oscillations and Løw associates it with the song of the same name by Silver Apples.
