In a conversation with Alissa Bennett, Bjarne Melgaard presented and discussed His new book "A New Novel" at the Astrup Fearnley Museum this Thursday.

Bjarne Melgaard is, and has been one of the most talked about contemporary artists since he emerged on the art scene in the 90s. With his new book he continues the themes  from his paintings and installations, and in a New Novel we continue into Melgaard labyrinthine layer-by-layer stories with exaggerated and destructive themes, expressive visuality and powerful use of words that we recognize from his visual world.

Alissa Bennett is a writer who regularly collaborates with Bjarne.She wrote the text that accompanied the Baton Sinister catalogue for his exhibition at the Venice Biennale in 2011.Alissa Bennett is an associate director at Luxembourg Dayan Gallery in New York, and is curator for the exhibition A New Novel By Bjarne Melgaard, currently on view in the gallery.
