A foggy hillside, a mountain of dust and pebbles, heaps of fresh asphalt by a country road. Some rainbow coloured rope streched between the white walls, vertical wooden sticks and a cairn of volcanic stones – a few fixtures in an otherwise amorphous landscape. Walking along a path, one does not only leave physical imprints and traces behind, but also invisible strata of emotional sediments; ones sedimentality.
In Sedimentality Linn Pedersen picks up the thread of her previous project Floor Arrangements, where analogue photographs and site-specific sculptures form a continuous installation. Sedimentality shows a subjective landscape where the map and the terrain melt together and continuously reshape each other.
Linn Pedersen (b. 1982 Sortland, Norway) lives and works in Berlin. She received her MA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Fine Arts in London, 2009, and her BA in Fine Art at Royal College of Fine Arts in Bergen, 2006. Her previous solo-shows include Floor Arrangements at Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin (2012), Echo Chamber (with Jan Freuchen) at Gallery Volt in Bergen (2012), The Trouble with Matterat Melk, Oslo (2011). She has exhibited in cities like Oslo, London, Berlin, Kristiansand and Prague. In 2011 Pedersen co-curated the Lofoten International Art Festival (LIAF) in Lofoten, Norway, together with Thora Dolven Balke. Melk exhibited Pedersen along with Marthe Elise Stramrud at the Unseen Photo Fair in Amsterdam in September 2013.
