Beneath the Skin is a series of new works to be exhibited in the stunning purpose built contemporary art showroom Skur 2. The showroom is directly on the quayside with stunning views across the Norwegian Fjords offering a unique location to view some of the most exciting art around.
In Sandra’s words.
With the series “Les Cages” I have worked to tell the story of women today and make evident the pressures of the societal demands and expectations laid on our shoulders -from the way we look to the manner in which we perform as human beings. With this new collection of work I look more towards the individual, the pressures that we each wilfully pursue, the traps we lay upon ourselves in the belief in what ought and ought not be and our sincerest efforts to adapt therein. Perhaps we take upon ourselves these demands to fit the notion that surrounds us or perhaps such a notion is rendered acceptable by means of our relentless pursuit to adapt. In any case, this body of work explores the existential prisons we build for ourselves, the interior struggle, the civil war within. These are Les Cages, Beneath the skin.
