Upcoming: Lizzie Fitch / Ryan Trecartin
- 23.02.2018 – 20.05.2018
- Astrup Fearnley Museet
In the last decade, the critically acclaimed artist duo Ryan Trecartin (1981) and Lizzie Fitch (1981) have created video installations that reference contemporary American youth culture, reality TV and social media.
The notion of sculpture has always been present in their work, both on and off the screen. In this exhibition, the Astrup Fearnley Museet will present one of their major video installations Plaza Point (2009), but the main focus will be on their sculptural production. This is the first museum exhibition to feature their sculptures as autonomous works. Placed in an artificial “sculpture garden” within the main museum space, the works, made from non-traditional materials, are single figures or complex narrative groups that express a grotesque view of human nature.
Curators: Gunnar B. Kvaran and Therese Möllenhoff
