VIRTUAL TOUR HUMANIZED FORMS | Jill Höjeberg

JILL HÖJEBERG, who studied in the United States and who lives in Sweden, Stockholm, is actually an artist deeply linked to our country, where she periodically comes to work on the source of one of her favourite materials, the white Carrara marble. Starting from the great attention to man of the classical and Renaissance marble tradition, Höjeberg completely transforms and renews its forms and intentions, in a profoundly contemporary way. The artist abandons the anthropomorphism of the work and seeks the essentiality of the human being into emotional geometries and movements of material. Her subjects are no longer statuary, distant and impassive but empathic forms, feminine and designed for contact with the viewer. It is difficult not to feel an emotional consonance with her works: they are twists, with full and empty, created for containing the feelings of those who look at them; hugs no longer made of muscles and outstretched arms, but of soft and synesthetic movements.
