Elin Melberg has always enjoyed working with contrasts, and has therefore been emphasizing on both big, maximalist installations and more downplayed works. She has enjoyed this way of working and has a growing need for this variation. She finds great joy in the different materials she works with and is very curious by nature. This is reflected in the way she simultaneously works with several techniques and mediums, but with recurring themes as a common denominator.
Coming from Stavanger in Norway, Aberdeen's twin city, Elin’s new work has been specially adapted for the Arches in Union Terrace Gardens. The partnership with Elin has been established through the Town Twinning fund of Aberdeen City Council and realised with the support of Stavanger Kommune.
