    • “Painter of the North”: Odd Nerdrum Exhibiting in Warsaw

      11th August is the date set for the opening of Odd Nerdrum’s solo exhibition at the Uljazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art (UCCCA) in Warsaw. The exhibition is titled Painter of the North and features many recent paintings. The UCCCA writes in their press release statement that: “Odd Nerdrum has become one of the most accomplished Norwegian painters since Edvard Munch. A defining moment in his early years was seeing Rembrandt’s painting The Conspiracy of Claudius Civilis in the National Museum of Fine Arts in Stockholm.” Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art. Photo: Filip Kwiatkowski – In Nerdrum’s paintings, Mankind is situated in an abysmal, mythological world beyond what we usually associate with ‘history’, time and space, says Jon Eirik Lundberg, who is curating the exhibition. He calls Nerdrum’s imagery “a completely new world and a language of signs and symbols,” imitating myths and tales. – But this is not some earlier version of mankind; these people are us, Nerdrum’s contemporaries, only stripped of our modern outfits. Time is absent. They are inhibiting ‘an eternal present’. Not post-apocalyptical, not after some global destruction, but rather as we live today in our essence, Lund continues. The exhibition will be on view from 11th August through 10th of December 2023.
