The summer exhibition of Taidehalli The Third Factor includes
Susanne Gottberg's (b. 1964) stunning glass studies and glazes on plywood,
as well as this impressive installation At the Same Time Elsewhere
created together with sculptor Markus Kåhre (b. 1969).
This sympathetic room just called to step inside. The door was invitingly open.
Together 2019 & Together Later in 2019
In her paintings with restrained colour scheme Gottberg focuses on glass studies. Most of us recognize these cheap pressed glasses. Glass has inspired Gottberg to look at shine and reflections. In paintings the glass is alone or one inside the other, washed upside down in big piles ... The backgrounds are restrained, sometimes the glasses have a marimekko-like reflection. The exhibition also featured some objects on plywood boards, where the faults of the wood were perfectly visible.
