SOYUZ is proud to present „Paper Moon“, two-person show by Kalle Lindmark and Kah Bee Chow, curated by Domenico de Chirico.
I’m working with painting as a tool for (indirectly) giving obscured areas and domains visual appearance. The non-linear qualities connected to the medium, and the possibility to closely utilize intuition — intuition as a form of knowledge just not accessible through the spoken or written language — makes painting a way to nuance such areas. And as painting can activate a kind of dynamic seeing in the viewer; addressing the body, memories, experiences, tacit knowledge, intuition etc. i find that we are sensitive receptors to hidden messages, peripheral areas and other unspeakable things.
Kalle Lindmark lives and works in Malmö, Sweden.
I work with forms of enclosures in relation to animals and the human body – driven by divergent lines of imagined narratives and information flows. I think of enclosures here as architectural, visual modes of surveillance: ways of visually tracking and monitoring bodies in a defined space. I think of enclosure, here too, as evasions of surveillance, as possibility for recess and shelter: a private chamber in which to take rest, the seeking of refuge in a fortress, a folding into the ether.
For me, these considerations are inextricable from my process of making, how physical materials behave – the weight and density of a concrete cast, the reflective properties of a plastic surface, the lines of architecture. In the encounter, the primary form of address is the body in space, a composition of lines striving to register an array of psychic resonances within the space.
