Martin Bodilsen Kaldahl’s work shapes intuitive, spatial form. Materiality and structure go hand in hand. With extruded cut clay tubes, the artist builds overlapping and assembled sculptures – emerging out of a mental void. They are results of a distracted sense, they remain pure sculptural movement.
What I find particularly intriguing is the artist’s exhibition in Oslo, how the sculptures are placed and command the room around them. For me this creates a juxtaposition between natural form and cultural construction – one reflects the other.
Leading on to my exhibition this is something that is incredibly important – how I want the relationship between sculpture to be seen, how the viewer sees my work and secondly how the element of space can justify or characterize.As Kaldahl coined can my work command some sense of “possible gesture”.
