Un air familier
Erik Jeor & Elvire Soyez
(1/3 – 30/4 2016)

Recent watercolours made by Erik Jeor in conversation with sculptures and drawings by Elvire Soyez.

Riche -Teatergrillen, March 1 – April 30, 2016


Jeor was born 1974 and lives in Stockholm. He holds an MFA from the
Royal Institute of Art. His work has been shown at Moderna Museet,
Bonniers Konsthall, Göteborgs Konstmuseum, Malmö Konstmuseum, Södertälje
konsthall, Eskilstuna Konstmuseum, Länsmuseet Västernorrland, Art
Cologne in Köln, Allegra LaViola Gallery in New York, Gallery B15 in
Copenhagen, Angelika Knäpper Gallery and Lars Bohman Gallery. Jeor is
represented in collections of Moderna Museet, Malmö Konstmuseum,
Sundsvalls Museum, Sveriges Radio and has completed a public art work
for Karolinska Institutet. Parallel to accomplishments as a visual
artist, Jeor also has a career as a musician. His fourth full-length
album is released at Kning Disk this spring. Critics have pointed to the
ambient qualities in his music. These words may also describe Jeor’s
watercolours, in which he seeks to capture the floating and changeable.

latest work is appropriately called ”Icône”. They can be seen as
informal religious icons originally related to Christian history,
iconography but as well linked to contemporary artists.


Soyez was born 1980 in France and lives in Stockholm. She holds an MFA
from École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris and have been
doing artistic research at the Fondation Fernando Alvares Penteado in
Sao Paulo and at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm. Soyez work is
represented at Statens Konstråd, Stockholm Konst and several private
collections. Her works have been shown at the Espace Paul Ricard in
Paris, KaVe at Istanbul Biennial, Adastreet Gallery in London, Ak28
Gallery, Slaktusateljéerna, Skulpturens Hus and Angelika Knäpper Gallery
in Stockholm.

Soyez´ gaze, the sculptor´s gaze, moves over the
surface of the material like a dowser, trying to determine questions
regarding volume and qualities in associative layers. History is a
compressed amount of sort. To cut it is, as in wood or stone, to make
available forces that might appear dangerous and unpredictable. It is of
importance to stay alert. The voltage might hit you.

A text by Ulrika Pilo will be published in conjunction with the exhibition.
