Nils Stærk is proud to present Jone Kvie’s solo exhibition presence & remnants. The exhibition is the fifth solo presentation of Kvie’s work by Nils Stærk.

Jone Kvie’s sculptures often depict scientific phenomena casted in various materials. The works are enormously seductive, even though the phenomena they depict often confront us with the impermanence of humanity.

Nils Stærk is pleased to present Guatemalan artist Darío Escobar’s (b. 1971) first solo exhibition in Scandinavia. The exhibition will consist of new and recent sculptural works.

The title of the exhibition Unions and Intersections underlines a general theme in Escobar’s work. The chosen objects, which make up Escobar’s sculptures become markers and signs of both unions and intersections through the way they are arranged and their conversion into art.

His works at first appear to be recognizable objects such as lampposts, drainpipes, sofas, sleeping bags, brick walls, and sneakers, however …

We are happy to present Smile As If We Have Already Won, Miriam Bäckström’s third solo exhibition at Nils Stærk.

The title piece Smile As If We Have Already Won – a 12 meter long tapestry, occupies the gallery’s main space and divides the room diagonally. As it is possible to walk around the work and study it from the back, the motif’s negative becomes part of the total experience of the work.

The image is a single piece of …
