Irene Myran: SONATE
SOFT galleri, Oslo
4. april – 26. mai 2019


Irene Myran’s retrospective exhibition at SOFT Gallery is curated by the artist Runa Boger. The title is borrowed from the textile work SONATE, on which Myran has painted the logo of the old record label Die Stimme Seines Herrn, better known as His Master’s Voice. In the foreword to the exhibition catalogue, Boger writes the following:

The logo can stand as a metaphor for Irene Myran’s career. For 40 years, she has spoken with a clear voice, not only through her textile works but also through her involvement in art politics. Her pictorial presentations – her bright and exotic colours, stylization of naturalistic motifs, and love of rhythmically repeating ornaments – have made their mark on exhibitions and public works of art. Myran has been a member of numerous committees, both regional and national, and in this capacity, has helped form art policies, ensure the rights of artists, and improve their working and living conditions. This is especially so for women artists.
