Exhibition // Ragnar Kjartansson – Epic Waste of Love and Understanding

9 June 2023 - 22 October 2023

DKK145

One of the must-see exhibitions of 2023, according to The Art Newspaper, this presentation of Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson features works in a variety of media, ranging from drawing and painting to performance and large-scale spatial works. The exhibition is developed in close collaboration with the artist who is widely recognized as one of the most exciting and significant voices of contemporary art. Kjartansson (b. 1976) takes a both loving and critical look at Western culture. Love, identity, melancholy, masculinity, power and powerlessness are among the artist’s central themes. He often uses repetition as a method – repeating a motif, a scene or a single strophe over a prolonged period of time. The balance between existential or political seriousness and superficial cliché invests the works with a precise, quivering ambiguity.
