New Normal Projects is delighted to present After Language our first exhibition at Cromwell Place in South Kensington.
After Language is a duo exhibition between Evelina Hägglund and Rosalie Wammes who place physical experience, emotion and materiality at the forefront of their practices. The two artists are working towards embodying the unspoken through large-scale drawings and sculptures, facilitating conversations between their works, not through tongue or vernacular, but materials such as wax, clay, metal, graphite and concrete.
Evelina Hägglund (b. 1992) is a Swedish artist based between London and Stockholm. Her practice investigates and expands on how she materially responds to language (and consequently culture) and aims at bringing forth a way of knowing that isn’t possible to socialize but that can be physically experienced. Through drawing, painting and sculpture in metal, graphite and concrete, Hägglund’s focus is on giving space to the very excess of language.
Rosalie Wammes (b.1988) is a Dutch artist based in Rotterdam. Her practice utilizes materials like clay and metal, wax and sound in order to encapsulate a sense of nostalgia and collective care. Her sculptures become channels for her memories, hopes and fears, which she generously bestows on the audience.
