Norway - Oslo - Kunstnernes Hus - Michaël Borremans09/11/2010
December 3, 2010 - January 16, 2011
The films, paintings, and drawings by Belgian artist Michaël Borremans (°1963) overwhelm the viewer through their deceleration, precision and attractive force. Behind a veil of stylistic perfection, the artist simulates common rituals of interpretation and meaning. His intensely atmospheric images are puzzles involving political and psychological patterns of perceiving the world, which oscillate in a camouflaging, fragile way between ruthless realism and nebulous distance. The exhibition will present a selection of more than 40 works, including drawings, paintings and films from the last ten years as well as a brand new series of paintings from 2010.
