Carl Emil Jacobsen: Don’t Know What Shape I’m In, curated by Henriette Noermark

Patrick Parrish Gallery
50 Lispenard Street, New York
Opening on May 17th

Henriette Noermark is curating a solo show by Danish sculptor Carl Emil Jacobsen at Patrick Parrish Gallery in Tribeca opening on May 17th. The show, entitled Don't Know What Shape I'm In, is Jacobsen's first solo show in the US.

Jacobsen’s works occupy the liminal overlap of nature, art and culture; they derive from an experimental approach to materiality and design, with a particular focus on the compositional, aesthetic and sensory properties of objects. His focus in recent years has centered primarily around sculptural works in fiber-reinforced concrete, painted with natural self-made pigments from locally-found, crushed bricks and stones. This results in an extraordinary color scheme, from bright marble and chalk to burnt-dark colors reminiscent of eggplants, dust, and deep reds. For this exhibition, Jacobsen has introduced iron to his range of components.
