Rebecca Lindsmyr's 'Untitled' (2020) is now part of the permanent collection at S.M.A.K,

NILS STÆRK is very pleased to announce that Rebecca Lindsmyr's 'Untitled' (2020) is now part of the permanent collection at S.M.A.K, Museum Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst in Ghent, BE.

The work of Rebecca Lindsmyr evolves from an interest in the complexities of the embodied self - as simultaneously being a subject of experience and an object in the world. These dual, or multiple vantage points render the self sensitive to relations of power, as well as historically, politically, socially, and emotionally shifting understandings of the body. Due to this sensitivity, the embodied self becomes a mirror of its time and context; as time penetrates it and continuously (re)shapes it.

SOLO SHOWS 

Matthew Ronay: The Crack, the Swell, an Earth, an Ode

Matthew Ronay's solo exhibition "The Crack, the Swell, an Earth, an Ode" opens today at Nasher Sculpture Center. 

Titled The Crack, the Swell, an Earth, an Ode, the nearly 24-foot-long sculpture offers a comprehensive introduction to Ronay’s surreal worlds and the various creatures inhabiting them. Representing that tension between abstraction and representation, the various connected elements in The Crack achieve what Ronay describes as “the razor’s edge of familiar and unfamiliar; you think you’re seeing something, but you’re not quite sure.”

 

The exhibition is open until 15.01.2023.

 

PUBLICATIONS 

Tom Sandberg: Photographs

Newly released, “Tom Sandberg: Photographs” is the first major publication dedicated to one of Norway’s most important photographers.

Working in a signature modulating gray scale, the late Norwegian photographer Tom Sandberg spent decades rendering the world according to an exacting vision, training his eye on the shapes and forms of the everyday—dark abstractions of asphalt and sea, the hard edges of an automobile, an ominously curved tunnel, an anonymous figure casting a shadow—to plumb the nature of photographic seeing.

His pictures are subtle yet transformative, studies of stillness that radiate mystery. A perfectionist in the darkroom, Sandberg was acutely sensitive to the rich spectrum of black and white, and his handmade prints, at times printed on aluminum and canvas, project a powerful physical presence. Although Sandberg is esteemed in his native Norway and throughout Scandinavia and Europe, his oeuvre is less known in the United States and other parts of the world. This monograph, produced in close collaboration with the Tom Sandberg Foundation in Oslo, is a long-overdue celebration of this distinguished artist.

COMMISSIONS 

SUPERFLEX is a part of Art at the Residence, NY

Ny Carlsbergfondet has made a donation of contemporary Danish art to the Residence of the Danish Consul General in New York to represent Danish culture, creativity and art, a decorative commission called "Art at the Residence". 

SUPERFLEX' It Is Not The End Of The World (2019) is a part of this commission. IT IS NOT THE END OF THE WORLD is a work by SUPERFLEX that presents the familiar phrase as a LED light sign installation reminiscent of a commercial billboard. The viewer is invited to reflect upon our present role in a world of escalating climate change and an apocalyptic human future while imagining a future world of lively, diverse and perhaps even humanlike lifeforms.
