Welcome to our opening of the exhibition Aase Texmon Rygh. The Form of Eternity
We are proud to present this unique touring exhibition produced by the National Museum. “The Form of Eternity” invites the audience to feel the smooth, cold surface of Aase Texmon Rygh’s twisted sculptures of stone. The exhibition takes us closer to Texmon Rygh’s ground-breaking three-dimensional art than ever before.
Aase Texmon Rygh (born 1925) is often referred to as modernism’s “Grand Old Lady” in Norwegian sculpture. At the age of 27, she was the first to introduce abstract sculpture to the Norwegian public.
The exhibition is centered around Texmon Rygh’s main works: the so-called Moebius sculptures, also known as the eternity sculptures. Texmon Rygh discovered the mathematical principle of the Moebius strip at a technical museum in Paris during the 1980s. A strip twisted 180 degrees before the ends meet, makes a form without a front or back, inside or outside, beginning or end. She has created five variations over this principle: round, standing, landscape, double and triple, in several different materials. This exhibition lets us experience all five variations in the stone diabase.
