STARRING INTO THE ABYSS
In her artistic practice, Rebekka Borum explores several existential questions that are present in the abstract paintings as the relationship between universe and earth and life and death. Over the past couple of years her expression has developed from being very rigorously geometric abstraction, to be a more fluid visual imagery, and with her meditative, repetitive painting techniques she creates patterns, which suck the viewer into the light as well as the dark.
Inspired by the raw setting in Nordkraft, and the extreme height of TURBINEGALLERIET, Rebekka Borum has created a site specific and untraditional mounting that both challenges the viewer and the classical way of experiencing paintings.
Rebekka Borum is a self-taught visual artist and has an education in Art and Technology (AAU). She lives and works in Aalborg, and she has a studio on the east harbour in an old industrial building.
