Lundgren Gallery
Palma, Mallorca, Spain
January 26 – March 8, 2024

Subtlety, vulnerability, playfulness, and insistent presence has become hallmarks of Cato Løland’s practice. He is particularly drawn to industrially produced materials as they offer an opportunity for the reintroduction of the human hand in their creation – for reanimation. In his exhibition ADDED with Lundgren Gallery, two series of works are presented, entitled Fullness, Emptiness and Arches in Span.

Cato Løland (b. 1982) lives in Bergen, Norway. His work has a playful odor and refuses to get categorized, it questions hierarchies within materials and techniques. Detritus cast aside and rescued from alleyways can be found alongside expensive silk and high-quality artistic tools. Løland completed his MA from Bergen Academy of Art and Design in 2009. Recent solo exhibitions include Bogar i spenn at Tou, Stavanger (NO), Turning Strangers into Family at Entrée, Bergen (NO), Chests at Paris Internationale, Paris (FR), Reservoar at The Textile Industry Museum, Salhus (NO), Før, før, etter, etter at Tag Team, Bergen (NO), Albogerom at SOFT Gallery, Oslo (NO). Group exhibitions include Uncertain Weavings at The Address Gallery, Brescia (IT), The Queer Gaze at KODE Art Museums, Bergen (NO) and Contextile at the 6th Contemporary Textile Art Biennial in Guimarães (PT).
