Tactility

29.05.2013

We are very pleased to present the exhibition Tactility with new works by Markus Amm, Michael Dean, Adam McEwen, Gabriel de la Mora, Sam Moyer and Tove Storch.

 

The word tactility is used to describe an object’s tangible/textural quality, and is perceptible by touch. All of the contributing artists work with an individual idiom and each of them emphasises texture over concept.

 

Different materials create different surfaces, textures and tactile sensations. Of course different materials also establish different …

TORBJØRN RØDLAND

19.01.2013

Nils Stærk is pleased to announce the exhibition American Photography with ten new works by Los Angeles based artist Torbjørn Rødland. This is Rødland’s fourth solo-presentation at the gallery.

In making and combining photographs, Rødland’s practice is a subversive one. Familiar images and motifs are tapped for intuitive internal connections and mythological connotations – this often leads to hybrid genres.

With its willfully generic title, this new collection of photographs builds a loose but symbolically saturated weave of culturally recognizable …

We are very pleased to present Matthew Ronay’s third solo exhibition at the gallery. It will be the first time Ronay exhibits in our new space at Ny Carlsberg Vej 68, where his exhibition It Comes In Waves will fill out the entire gallery.

 

Matthew Ronay’s sculptural works are like mythological visions that embrace the mystical and strange without loosing the ability to impact the viewer on a fundamentally human level. Ronay works with humble materials such as wood, …

NILS ERIK GJERDEVIK

12.05.2012

We are very pleased to present a solo exhibition with new works by Nils Erik Gjerdevik. The exhibition consists of four new large-scale paintings as well as a drawing installation. The works in the show are all characterized by Gjerdevik’s consistent investigations of the potential of abstraction. The paintings contain a myriad of details and a graphic expression typical of Gjerdevik’s earlier praxis but simultaneously they reveal an element of expressive wildness marking a new beginning in his work.

The …

MICHAEL KVIUM TAIL TO TAIL

 17.03 – 05.05.2012

Tail to Tail is Michael Kvium’s first solo exhibition at Nils Stærk. The exhibition consists of new oil paintings and works on paper.

Since the paintings and performances of the 1980’s Michael Kvium’s works have focused on uncompromising descriptions of the aspects of life that we rather hide than expose to observation. In recent years Kvium’s grotesque and perverted depictions of the human body are companied by beautiful landscapes and animal motives. …
