Ingela Ihrman @ Gasworks Gallery
1 February 2023 - 30 April 2023
Moving freely between performance, sculpture and video, Ingela Ihrman’s work, Nocturne, evokes the interconnected coexistence of seemingly humble life-forms such as invasive weeds, intestinal flora, extinct amphibians and nocturnal birds.
Ihrman’s work nurtures empathy, tenderness and a sense of wonder for all living creatures, seeing each of them as a part of a wider ecology. Carefully handcrafted costumes are a recurring element, which come to life in awkward, often humorous performances where the artist embodies the joys and pains of oversized plants and animals whilst blooming or giving birth.
