    The Hand Refrains assesses the relationship between artists, their work and the viewer.

    The group exhibition shows different approaches to artworks using figuration. In the pieces, figures are not only depicted, the artworks themselves actively become figures, by assuming the position of the artist’s avatar or that of a creature looking back at you.

    “The hand refrains” is also a quote from the 1922 William Morris poem about the legendary artist Pygmalion and his relationship to Galatea.
