Elements at ArtEco Gallery in London

From ancient history through the classical era and beyond, mankind has long been mesmerised by the four elements of earth, water, air and fire. The group exhibition Elements at ArtEco Gallery explores these four facets. Among the artists are Norwegians Sidsel Christensen and Lise Wullf.

From Babylonia to Greece, the concept of the four elements has come to symbolise everything from different facets of the cosmos to alchemical experiments and even personalities and zodiac signs. The exhibition Elements explores this through the works of Mat Chivers, Sidsel Christensen, Hyojun Hyun, Kyounghee Noh and Lise Wulff. Elements comes as a prelude to Earth Day 22nd April.

Sidsel Christensen is a London-based artist engaged in moving image, live-events and performance-based lectures. This year Christensen was featured in Modern Painters as one of '100 Artists to Watch'. Exhibiting nationally as well as abroad, London shows from 2009/13 include partaking in The Object Of The Attack at the David Roberts Art Foundation, showing work at The South London Cultural Centre, Vilma Gold, ICA and The Royal Academy.

Lise Wulff explores a range of various techniques and materials. Organic shapes and natural materials are recurring characteristics. Further, she is involved in several art projects related to dignity and to the environment, most notably she is the founder of the environmental art project, which aims to raise consciousness about the relationship between humans and nature. Recent exhibitions include Lost Garden at the Henie Onstad Art Centre, Norway; Ahojat the Museum Kampa, Czech Republic: and Beneath at Galerie Califia, Horazdovice, Czech Republic.
