Mamma Andersson & Jockum Nordström

Autofictions – Contemporary Drawing

17.11 2018–24.2 2019, Wilhelm-Hack-Museum, Ludwigshafen, Germany

Interestingly, contemporary artists in this age of digitalisation and social media are increasingly focusing again on drawing. This is perhaps a coincidence considering that the medium is generally regarded as the most direct of all forms of artistic expression. With its intimate appeal, its narrative as well as subjective inquisitive potentials, the gestures of drawing exert a fascination that is now appears more relevant than ever.

With their Prix de dessin de la Fondation d’art contemporain Daniel & Florence Guerlain, the French collectors have been supporting artists who have made drawings their primary means of expression since 2006. Three artists of all ages and backgrounds are nominated every year by an international jury of specialists. The prize represents an exciting cross-section of current international trends in the field of contemporary drawing. A tendency in the direction of the figurative, the narrative, and indeed even the fantastic is evident in the works of the 33 artists at the heart of the presentation in the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum.
