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.
How does the work of Ingmar Bergman go beyond the status of cultural heritage by manifesting itself in new forms in today's creative practice?
The BF Artist Film Festival VII programme has been selected from over 500 applicants and curated to showcase current technical approaches and thematic concerns explored by moving image artists. Domesticity and banality, voyeurism and sexuality, navigating the Internet and our relationships within the urban environment, are all themes that have occurred naturally through the selection process.
Nordic Impressions is a major survey of Nordic art spanning nearly 200 years and presenting 53 artists from Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Norway, and Sweden, as well as the self-governing islands of Åland, Faroe, and Greenland. The exhibition celebrates the incredible artistic diversity of Nordic art, from idealized paintings of the distinctive Nordic light and untouched landscape to melancholic portraits in quiet interiors and mesmerizing video works that explore the human condition.
In autumn 2018, the Nordic Watercolour Museum presents a comprehensive solo exhibition by Maria Nordin. The core of the exhibition will be the artist’s latest large-format watercolours and animated short films. These pieces are being shown for the first time. The presentation also includes a rich selection of older paintings and animations, which are both on loan and taken from the Nordic Watercolour Museum’s own collection.
We are pleased to present Niklas Eneblom’s eighth solo exhibition in the gallery. Why Can’t There Be a Mountain on the Horizon presents a new series of paintings made on drafting film. The works of the exhibition have an evocative and dreamy nature. As the title suggests, it alludes to a longing for something else. Eneblom looks back at previously visited places, and events from the past. In the process he rediscovered the drafting film as surface to apply paint upon:
