“Retningen høner sparker” 
24.09 - 16.10.2022 / opening night 24.09 - 19:00

Heerz Tooya proudly presents the solo exhibition, titled Retningen høner sparker, by Kaare Ruud. The exhibition contain new work and is a conclusion of his artist-in-residency at ARV.International in Vishovgrad.


Summoned prosaic treasures, inanimated spirits, and activities tore from everyday life. Kaare Ruud welcomes us to an alien reality with a breath of familiarity and slithering sensibility. Ruud's personal encounters with specific environments and objects often unfold as portraits of living memories, intellectual inquiries, and material pertinence. Specifically for the exhibition at Heerz Tooya, narratives are guttered.

Ruud usually treats found objects as living, dehumanized beings. Creatures tormented by the impersonal breath of infinity. Unified by metallic solidity, we see various collected materials unhierarchally expose a lineage of decay. Remnants of human ingenuity, floral tributes, and untold radioactivitata; are flooded, cloaked, toling the beauty of reincarnated materiality. A long line of relics floating beneath a gray sky. Neither its beginning nor its end can be seen. The interior rain presented to us in the exhibition space veil the unnameable reality of the natural world - earthened, pooled, poured, twisted, and carried with hidden little secrets.
- Lars Nordby

Призовани прозаични съкровища, неодушевени духове и дейности, откъснати от ежедневието. Коре Рууд ни приветства в една извънземна реалност с дъх на познатост и плъзгаща се чувствителност. Личните срещи на Рууд със специфична среда и обекти често се разгръщат като портрети на живи спомени, интелектуални запитвания и материална уместност. Конкретно за изложбата в Галерия Heerz Tooya, разказите са разпръснати.

Рууд обикновено третира намерените предмети като живи, дехуманизирани същества. Създания, измъчвани от безличния дъх на безкрая. Обединени от метална твърдост, виждаме различни събрани материали нейерархично изложени  наяве в линия на разпадане. Останки от човешка изобретателност, цветя и неизказана радиоактивност; наводнени, прикрити, носещи красотата на превъплътената материалност. Дълга поредица от реликви, носещи се под сивото небе. Не се вижда нито началото, нито краят. Дъждът събран във вътрешното пространство на изложбата ни разкрива воала на неназовимата реалност на природния свят - заземен, натрупан, излят, усукан и носен със скрити малки тайни.
- Ларс Нордби
