Might Enlighten Personal Nocturnal Bloom, is a duo-exhibition by Swedish artist Nadine Byrne and Danish artist Marie Edinger Plum. The exhibition consists primarily of new works from both artists; embroidery, paintings and objects installed in a scenographic setting and a site-specific collaborative work which fills the floors of the gallery.
In the exhibition MEPNB (which is also the initials of the artists), the material becomes the bearer of a communication that transcends time and space. The works are used as a foundation to push trough the boundaries of what we perceive as reality - and here and now.
A dialog is also initiated between the works of the two artists. Common patterns speak of nationality and backround. Questions are raised but not fully answered. How are we alike? How are we separate?
Plum’s works treat in different ways the relationship between self-promotion and fragility. Each of the works came through their translation of materials reference to appear as scenographic props. Byrne on the other hand refer to something more ephemeral, hard to grip, but take their beginning in something as real as loss.
