Gun Gordillo – solo exhibition at Market Art Fair 2024

Share on facebook

At Market Art Fair, Liljevalchs, 2112 is presenting a curated solo exhibition with new and older works by Gun Gordillo.

Since the 1970s, Gordillo has been a pioneer in her field, utilizing neon as her primary medium. Her artistic practice involves a continuous exploration of her chosen materials. Gordillo frequently engages neon lights in dialogue with lead, steel, brass, wood, acrylic glass and paint, pushing the boundaries of what is possible. With an uncompromising approach to both art and life, Gordillo’s works serve as a testament to the sublimely beautiful, the poetic and the rebellious.

For many years, Gun Gordillo was represented by the renowned gallery Denise René and resided in Paris for over two decades. Notable exhibitions include Cisternerne (Copenhagen), Aarhus Kunstbygning, Lunds Konsthall, Galerie Beyeler (Basel), Musée Matisse (Le Cateau-Cambrésis), Tsukuba Museum of Art (Ibaraki), among others. Gordillo has crafted various site-specific works, including installations at locations such as the Slussen Bus Terminal (Stockholm), Copenhagen Business School, Arlanda Airport (Stockholm), HK Head Quarters (Copenhagen), Jacob Burckhardt Haus (Basel), Quay of Hammarby (Stockholm), and VIA College (Aarhus). In 2023, her monumental neon installation on the ceiling of the metro station Hötorget in Stockholm underwent a complete renovation and has now been declared worthy of cultural-historical preservation.

With over 300 photographs, the book traces Gordillo’s artistic evolution throughout her career, spotlighting her individual pieces, architectural installations, and exhibitions. Essays and texts by Marika Wachtmeister, Ingela Linda, Domitille D’Orgeval and Mette Marcus.

Additionally, previously unpublished photographs from Gordillo’s personal collection provide insights into her creative process and international life in cities like Copenhagen, Stockholm, Cairo, and Paris, as well as in the Swedish archipelago.

Visit her at the hybrid gallery 2112’s booth no. 9.
