Can one single thought sound differently and thereby be dissonant? It can, if it is ambiguous, or a stream of thoughts developing as in Hansina Iversen’s works. As suggested by the exhibition title, the works can be perceived as a fluidum of thoughts - or a sense of being- taking form or dissolving, changing color, intensifying or fading. All of which “sound” differently.
Hansina Iversen’s motives are as abstract as can be. Geometrical forms dissolve and are replaced by a material and physical flow in the form of broad, waving streaks. They are untitled and contain a concentrate of perception and a great sensibility. They are obviously the result of a mental as well as a physical process.
Dissonant Thought is an exhibition created in the mind - for the eye - but maybe also for the ear? “Dissonans” refers to sound and synesthesia – the neurological cross-sensory phenomena in which one may associate sound with color, or vice versa.
And Hansina Iversen’s works are indeed synesthetic for you can hear the music if you use your eyes and dare to get lost. A powerful sensory experience awaits you!
