Camilla Løw

Camilla Løw (b.1976, Oslo, Norway), graduated with a BA in Fine Art from the Glasgow School of Art. Through a visual language that recalls Constructivism and Minimalism, Camilla uses industrial materials to carefully compose her structures, often paring these geometric forms with evocative titles. Coming from a place of formal specificity, be this in relation to materials or sites, Camilla’s works do not just reference space but allow for a redefinition of such space within the social psyche. Recent public sculpture commissions, such as Broken Thrones (2020) provide a case in point example of this socio-spatial redefinition.
