Janicke Iversen, Art historian

In the plays of the Norwegian dramatist Jon Fosse, it is in the pauses between dialogues and the empty gaps and intervals that the real meaning of the text lies hidden. In other words, what is left unsaid is often more important than what is said. In Janine Magelssen’s works we find a similar interest for what lies “between the lines”; the layer between the concrete and the abstract where the perception of art is less dependent on a clear-cut understanding than on intuition and sensuousness.
