“Open Hands” at Almine Rech, Brussels

January 11 – February 22, 2014
Opening Saturday, January 11th, 2014
5 – 8 pm
For his first solo exhibition at Almine Rech Gallery in Brussels, Erik Lindman created six large scale works, one medium work and a selection of five smaller paintings which correlate between the two spaces he conceived for the venue.

The deliberately minimal hanging of the pieces, forces the spectator to concentrate on how they have adapted to the imposing volume of the gallery space. Whilst his previous works were largely made of found objects, sometimes barely modified, this new series is a return to painting and abstraction. The paintings are made of several elements which create a frame for a central component. This component is autonomous or may have been taken from another painting which didn’t work as intended. Nicolas Trembley interviewed the artist in his new Brooklyn studio in November 2013, while he was finalizing his work for the exhibition.
