Opening of the exhibiton titled "Human Error - Drawing as a seismograph" by Marianne Lund.

Marianne Lund (1961) lives and works in Kristiansand. She has a background as an architect and artist.

She works with drawings that are based on the body's encounter with geometry. Distinctive and intense expressions occurs when the same method is used over and over again. The human body's inadequacy and limitations are discussed in the project. When the physical body meets the abstract geometry it creates images where the precision is put under pressure by the bodily temperament.
