The way in which Løw deploys the blocks, stacking them in small columns of two, three, four or five, grouping works in the gallery rather than spacing them out evenly, invokes the tactile, immediate manner in which we find mutual accommodation between ourselves and the environment as we move through the city. Michael Archer on Camilla Løw, Sing to Me in French, in: Camilla Løw Straight Letters, DCA Dundee Contemporary Arts, 2008.

Sutton Lane is please to announce the second solo exhibition of Norwegian artist Camilla Løw in London.

For this latest exhibition the artist has produced a series of new sculptures that further develop her interest in the interplay between materials, space and colours. In this particular installation Camilla Løw departs from previous modes of displaying her work, placing the sculptures precisely within the gallery space in order to create a grid system of nine works.

The recent introduction of concrete blocks allows the artist to interact with the space in a more immediate way. Using the specially fabricated concrete cubes as modular elements she creates a site specific setting that explores the relationship between the works themselves, the viewer and the gallery space.

In her practice Camilla Løw revisits disciplines such as minimalism and constructivism. However, her works take on a more personal and playful approach, being informed by everyday experiences and reflecting anthropomorphic qualities of sculpture.

Camilla Løw has exhibited extensively in the UK and abroad. Recent solo exhibitions include Straight Letters, DCA Dundee Contemporary Arts touring to the Pier Arts Centre, Orkney. The Bergen Kunsthall, Norway will host a solo show by the artist in November. Her sculpture has recently been part of a group exhibition at the Middlesbrough Institute of Art (MIMA) and will be included in the group show Idealismusstudio at the Grazer Kunstverein, Austria.

Løws works form part of the Arts Council Collection, the Pier Arts Centre Collection, the Government Collection and the collection of the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo.
