About the show

Galleri Charlotte Lund has the great pleasure of presenting Mafune Gonjoʼs first solo show at the Gallery. Mafune Gonjo works with glass, combining pieces and shards with a focus on the interplay of light and shadow. The exhibition Room of Her Shadow shows unique sculptures where the design resides thematically in a personal sphere. Together, the works enact a tangible narrative from a home setting. A scenographic spatiality with acute symbolism is generated in the exhibition as the sculptures, some in the form of classical feminine and masculine attributes, are arranged together with other objects. Even with the multifaceted material itself, the artist refers to human emotions and actions, which, in turn are enhanced by the narrative. In her practice, she highlights the materialʼs character of being sharp, fragile, beautiful, and of varying transparencies. Each individual work oscillates between object and shadow, in an environment where the light shifts.
