Jens Fänge, Galerie Perrotin, New York, USA

Swedish artist Jens Fänge excels in creating subtly understated yet emotionally charged territories that merge abstract space with the human figure. His composite paintings and nested assemblages are often integrated into murals with vanishing points so elusive that they induce vertigo. Conflicting angles, off-kilter floors, and tilted walls make for fragmented interiors that seem neither two- nor three-dimensional. These ambiguous zones are inhabited by partially or fully rendered figures that gaze from framed portraits or appear like cut-out protagonists in a puppet or shadow play.

Jens Fänge, Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm, Sweden

Bonniers Konsthall opens the 2018 spring season with the most comprehensive solo exhibition of artist Jens Fänge. Fänge works with paint and assemblage and has occupied an esteemed position in the Swedish art world for quite some time. His work has recently received international attention. Drömmarna (The Dreams) focuses on his more recent production, a style characterised by the artist’s inclination to allow the paintings to extend beyond the canvas and into the room.

Jens Fänge, Galerie Perrotin, Paris, France

When we study Jens Fänge’s new works for The Hours Before somehow Luigi Pirandello’s absurdist play from 1921, Six Characters in Search of an Author, comes to mind.
I think this is because Fänge’s assemblages force onlookers to reconsider again and again what it is we are actually seeing – or maybe witnessing. There is a drama going on here, but which one? And what is it about?

Galleri Magnus Karlsson c/o Hotel le Manoir, Banyuls sur Mer, France

The first exhibition presents more than 30 works by 16 of the gallery’s artists.The works are not selected on the basis of a special theme, but there are a number connections to the geographical location, the building and the local nature and culture.

New Opening Days

Mamma Andersson & Jens Fänge, Artipelag, Stockholm, Sweden

In the exhibition HERE/NOW, Artipelag would like to take a stand for the physical meeting between artwork and the viewer. The title of the exhibition refers to artist Barnett Newman’s praised 1948 essay, The Sublime is Now. In the essay, Newman propagates the idea that the meeting between contemplator and artwork should be like a meeting between two people, wherein the relationship is based on a profound dialogue.

Jens Fänge, MOCA-Tucson, USA

Blueprint unites artists and architects with wide-ranging and disparate practices under a single, uniting theme: using the “blueprint” module to explore the origin of their practice. First conceived in 1999, the exhibition was a low-budget, DIY effort by and about a group of emerging artists (“ambitious and broke” artists, in the words of curator/artist Sebastiaan Bremer). A decade and a half later, the artists’ practices have matured, and Blueprint remains a fascinating recent historical document and a record of the artists’ creative trajectory and evolution.

Time Waits for Us, Galleri Magnus Karlsson

Galleri Magnus Karlsson is pleased to announce a group exhibition that will be on display throughout the summer. In conjunction with the inauguration of Nationalmuseum’s temporary space with the exhibition Carl Larsson - Friends and Enemies in our building (The Royal Academy of Fine Arts), we will show Time Waits for Us . This exhibition presents new works by all of our gallery artists.

Carl Hammoud & Jens Fänge, Gallery Baton, Seoul, South Korea

From Press Release:

Gallery Baton is pleased to present Diplopia, an exhibition introducing new works by Swedish artists Jens Fänge and Carl Hammoud.

Diplopia is the technical term for double vision; the simultaneous perception of two images. The title refers to the common denominators in the works of Fänge/Hammoud, such as the usage of two (or more) images, the double exposure of objects, or simply the equivocal nature of their works - where one interpretation is as true as another.

Pudelns Hjärna – en utställning sammanställd av Jens Fänge

I drömmen drömmer drömmen en dröm.
Det händer konstiga saker ibland. Trollkarlen drack upp sig själv och försvann.

Jag tänker att den här utställningen skall fungera som en kinesisk ask. Både i enskilda verk och i det arbete som hela utställningen utgör finns historier och bilder som reflekterar över relationen mellan konsten och (det som ibland kallas) verkligheten. Skikt efter skikt av minnen och erfarenheter. Det skenbart enkla skavfota med fint utmejslade världar. Utställningen rymmer motsägelser. Jag tror att dessa möten alstrar ljus.
