Anna Sofie Mathiasen stiller ut på Institut Valencià d'Art Modern
"OPEN CREATION AND ITS ENEMIES: Asger Jorn in situation" åpner 16. februar kl. 19
"Presentation by Ellef Ellef Prestsæter, exhibition curator; Jacob Thage, director of the Museum Jorn; and Nuria Enguita, director of the IVAM, in the company of the artists Michael Murtaugh and Nicolas Malevé (Institute for Computational Vandalism) and Anna Sofie Mathiasen.
Open Creation and Its Enemies: Asger Jorn in situation presents the singular trajectory of the Danish artist Asger Jorn (1914–1973), a founding member of avant-garde movements such as Cobra and the Situationist International. While often acclaimed as an extraordinary painter, the exceptional range of Jorn’s practice merits a broader exploration. Open Creation and Its Enemies makes legible the experimental parameters of Jorn’s multifarious activities, charting his exits from, as well as his returns to, painting.
The exhibition includes commissioned works by Danish artist Anna Sofie Mathiasen as well as by the Institute for Computational Vandalism, who have been invited to engage with Jorn’s legacy from a contemporary perspective. Developed in close collaboration with the Museum Jorn in Silkeborg and curated by Norwegian art historian Ellef Prestsæter, the exhibition is accompanied by a comprehensive book featuring translations of canonical and hitherto unpublished texts by Jorn as well as new perspectives on his practice."
