An exhibiton about materiality, perception and movement between bright and dark.
Light and the absence of light are immaterial presences. Eyesight relies on the presence of light. Likewise darkness, partial or complete, is also the absence of eyesight. This is a link between light/darkness and perception, and how we interpret our surroundings.
In “From Dark to Bright Matter” Maja Gade Christensen explores processes about appearance and disappearance. The movements of things which are on the verge of appearing and disappearing. This floating, variable process is explored in woodcuts, photos and an installation.
Maja Gade Christensen graduated from The Jutland Academy of Fine Arts in 2009. She works with various materials, concrete and minimalistic where patterns emergence and with decay as a pivotal point.

Outside of Denmark she has exhibited and taken part in events in the USA, Sweden, Iceland and Bulgaria. “From Dark to Bright Matter” is Maja Gade Christensen’s first solo exhibiton in Sweden.
