City Court in Lyngby 2020
Nat Bloch Gregersen works cross-media with sculpture, light, installation, and text.
In the series of light-works under the common name Light Techniques, Bloch Gregersen has developed a special language based on a free line, which originates from bodily processing of the form. In the meeting between the organic abstract forms and the neon media's industrial and streamlined connotations, a dualistic tension field emerges, which contains both qualities of something sharp and cold, and something soft and emotional. The light-works meet the viewers as three-dimensional sculptural elements in the room, where the light lifts the figure beyond the shape of the neon glass structures itself, blurring the boundary between the workplace and the outside world.
The title RB1 Polychrome deals with the technical characteristics of the work in the form of the material components (gases, glass, and colors). The word Polychrome comes from Ancient Greek (poly = many and chromos = color) and is used in the meaning multicolored.
Light affects humans emotionally. With a simultaneously insistent, generous and special intangible quality, the work RB1 Polychrome invites to open dialogue with the viewer’s own body and perception.
RB1 Polychrome is Nat Bloch Gregersen's first public commission.
