Statements
Lindy Anderson

My work is an exploration into materials, process, transformation and colour. I stretch the materials I use to their limits. In using wax I make objects that are delicate and fragile in nature and temporary in existence.

I use rich warm red and orange hues and when these colours interact with light they burst into life. The translucent property of the orange wax gives off an ambient glow. Revealing layers of formerly hidden colour and internal occlusions that distort both light and space and how one experiences the surrounding space.

The work, like much in life is ephemeral, ultimately the piece will transform due to the fragile nature of wax sheets and its limitations. The materials have a transitory nature and their own lifecycle. The wax becomes discoloured over time, turning brown in colour, as do the colour pigments. Each piece goes through a process of breaking down bit-by-bit and transforming into new forms until they are no longer. The wax is re-melted, pigment is re-added and the sheets are re-cast. Completing the cycle reminiscent of the rising and setting of the sun or the decaying beauty of the human body.

 

Leonora Aunstrup uses a wide range of material including, authentic recorded sound, reconstructed light, found and recycled objects, olfactory, craft, sculptures and moving images to create sensorial transformations of materials and spaces. Her work interacts and engages with the rhythm and movement of human behavior affected by an inner and an outer world. With handmade elements she engages with public spaces documenting the unexpected, responses, interactions and relations that occur. Leonora exposes her documentations and observations of the conscious and unconscious human behavior and present it in an absurd and humoristic way, she refuses to give up their meaning but instead demand we question the world around us and force us to think about how we want to live in it.
