Idun Baltzersen & Jockum Nordström et al., Magasin III, Stockholm, Sweden

From press release:
A Quiet Spring Wanders Through the Apartment (original title En tyst vår vandrar genom lägenheten) takes its point of departure in the rooms we create for our being. These rooms can be physical places, but also mental states that enable interpersonal encounters as well as introspection and a shield from the noise of the outside world.

Idun Baltzersen et al. Bomuldsfabriken Kunsthall, Arendal, Norge

Dette er tre separate utstillinger med kunstnere som ikke har stilt ut sammen tidligere. Kunstnerne er satt sammen ut ifra noen felles møtepunkter både visuelt og konseptuelt. Undertittelen til utstillingen, - orkanen nærmer seg, er hentet fra en låt med samme tittel fra garagerock-gruppen Pascal fra Gotland. På tross av en mørk klangbunn er utstillingen en hyllest til kunsten, trangen til utforskning og en påminnelse om at vi kan.

Intermezzo, Group Exhibition with Gallery Artists

We have postponed our regular public program and hope to open as usual again on May 9th. In the meantime, we have installed a group exhibition with a selection of works by gallery artists. The works are new, previously unseen or have been shown in other contexts. The exhibition runs through May 2, but may change over time. For the time being, we have the gallery open by appointment only. Please come and visit us if you have the possibility. Email or call us (+46 8 660 43 53 or +46 708 106 906) to make an appointment.

Främlingar / Strangers at Hellvi Kännungs, Gotland, Sweden

The exhibition is extended until August 1. Open Wednesday July 31 and August 1 between 2–6 pm!

This exhibition is a personal selection of works that all formally resemble the portrait. Some of them are made as portraits of specific people, while others merely use the human face as a means of expression. Common to all drawings, paintings and sculptures is that the depicted a person is the main motif of the work. The oldest artwork in the exhibition dates from the 17th century, the last one was finished only a few weeks ago.

Idun Baltzersen, Teckningsmuseet, Laholm, Sweden

From press release:
Idun Baltzersen (born 1987) works with large woodcuts where the blocks are integrated into magnificent installations with drawings, graphics and textiles. She works figuratively with different techniques, mainly woodcut, dry point, linocut and drawing. Her themes often concern the lives of young women and their relationship with themselves and the outside world. As a viewer, one is overwhelmed by how the powerful artworks contrast the tender thematic.

“In the age of digitalization, the eagle has landed.”

The exhibition The Eagle Has Landed brings together visual artists who share an experimental and open approach to printmaking. The exhibition wishes to examine the ways traditional techniques of printmaking are reinterpreted and altered in the field of contemporary art. Where can contemporary printmaking extend to?

Girls and Horses

It is actually quite annoying to work with printmaking because it constantly leads to pain in my wrists. But contrary to when I draw, it is the technique that controls me (at least part of the time), and this control results in a dialogue with the material. I believe this interaction has a nice power balance. The prints and drawings are often sewn and glued on top of each other.
