Rydh / Sörenson exhibition at The Nordic House, The Faroe Islands, opening 21 September.

Rydh/Sörenson are proud to invite you to our upcoming exhibition, opening the 21 September at the Nordic House in Tórshavn, The Faroe Islands. We will present a new temporary outdoor sculpture and our new films will be screened during the exhibition period, 22 September -5 November.

The first film, “Environmental Ephemerals” is recorded in Tjörnuvik, at the Faroe Islands depicting our temporary installations in motion, moving through the Faroe Islands landscape.

The second film, “We Have Been Expecting You”, is a techno-opera short. The music and lyrics guides the viewer through a mystical place in the forest and the creatures that inhabits it, their intrigues and aspirations.

We will also release our new book Environmental Ephemerals. Environmental Ephemerals are site-specific installations centered on nature and architecture. The catalog shows you a body of work created in different parts of the world; Stockholm, Sweden, Brussels, Belgium, Spokane, WA, USA and at the Faroe Islands.

Apocalypse, opening the January 14th at Ed Varie, Los Angeles

As an artist duo we create all the work together. Sometimes like a piano duo playing the same instrument at the same time, and sometimes assembling a suggestion for the other to revise, adjust or redo. The process is full of surprises and joy, resulting in a final state that we agree upon, and where we glue the image down. We call our method post-digital painting because even though the individual pieces are painted our composition process look much more how an artist would work in Photoshop; changing out a background, move an entire composition around and creating new layers. We are not only inspired by the digital as a method of working but it also inspires us visually; mixing video game aesthetics with glitches, abstract geometrical forms, pixel thin lines and high saturated colors.

We are pleased to present Apocalypse, an exhibition at Ed Varie, Los Angeles. Opening reception for Apocalypse, will be held Saturday January 14th, 6-9pm at the Los Angeles Ed. Varie location, 4516 1/2 N. Eagle Rock Blvd, LA, CA, one block north of York Blvd.

Rydh /Sörenson in the Faroe Islands

rydh_sorenson_faroe islandsRydh/ Sörenson are visiting the beautiful Faroe Islands. We will be here for almost a month, filming, photographing and creating new artwork. We are located in Tjørnuvík, a very special bay with a village of only 50 inhabitants. The bay is surrounded by mountains, steep and lush with small waterfalls all over.  We have been climbing and walking up and down the mountains. We have found magical rocks, seen amazing, and terrifying clouds, been attached by seagulls and had multiple cases of vertigo, still so happy to be here, one of the most breathtaking places on earth.

We are also proud to announce that we will exhibit at the Nordic House in Tórshavn in September, 2017.
