How can we find the moment where time waits?
The blowing of the wind animates beautiful paper cuts which appear to have alighted on the sharp edges and torn-apart rocks of Nature. In this new installation of photographs and video, Maja Ingerslev dramatises the meeting of reality and imagination by giving us an elusive glimpse of fragile paper formations incorporated into landscapes whose rough surfaces and surroundings sharply contrast with the paper. The images seem to hold within them a secret narrative.
The fragile paper silhouettes shaped into snowflakes, flowers, roots and feathers point up not only by their own grace but also nature's. In an odd way the paper-cuts place themselves between what does and what doesn't "exist". It is as if the imagined meets reality in a union of branched paper and flowering whiteness.
The images in question have been fashioned in Denmark, Italy and Iceland. In Ingerslev's exhibition time can wait, two worlds meet. We see invoked an adventurous state of being beyond the usual time of clock and bell. Somewhere between beginning and end there is the promise of change.

Maja Ingerslev (born 1972) was educated at the Jutland Academy of Art (2002) and lives near Aarhus. Her art encompasses photography, drawing, video, animation and installation spaces. One of her main themes is mankind's relation with nature and reality. She has had exhibitions all around Denmark and also abroad.
