Tove Storch’s first solo exhibition in North America follows a three-week production residency in the Art Gallery. The young Danish artist has already exhibited at S.M.A.K., Ghent, Belgium; the Louisiana Museum, Copenhagen, Denmark; and various galleries in Brazil. She recently completed a residency at the International Studio and Curatorial Program, New York.

Storch’s sculpture emphasizes process, physicality and the unique properties of materials. These characteristics are reminiscent of minimalist and post-minimalist practices of the 1970s. A Danish critic has identified a range of art-historical allusions in her work: “Donald Judd’s specific objects came to mind, as did Robert Irwin’s more delicate combinations of material qualities and visual effects, and the sensual spatial politics of Lygia Clark and Helio Oiticica.”

The new work proposed by Storch engages with the gallery’s two-storey architecture, deploying a forest of narrow metal rods to span the distance between floor and ceiling with an effect similar to that of a drawing. It incorporates the formal paradox typical of Storch’s sculpture, wherein the physical concreteness of the elements belies the optical variability of their appearance.

PANEL DISCUSSION Wednesday 15 March at 3:30pm
Artist Kim Morgan will hold a public conversation with gallery director Ingrid Jenkner concerning Storch’s work. Morgan’s sculpture Range Light, Borden-Carleton, PEI (2010) won the Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia Masterworks Arts Award in 2012.
