Meet Reykjavik: Icelandic pop-art pioneer Erró to Sandvika with unique exhibition.
The Icelandic artist Erró (b.1932) is one of the great solitary figures of twentieth-century art. At once Pop and Baroque, eye-catching and narrative, critical of society and humorous, moral and inscrutable, over the past sixty years he has produced an opulent, unmistakable oeuvre that resists all categorization.
A critical narrative collage
Erró's critical narrative collages reproduce in painting combinations of pictorial elements from various popular sources to create eloquent, often disturbing tableaux. As reflections on great social themes such as politics, war, sexuality, science, and art, these dense visual arrangements seem to create a comprehensive atlas of images of the modern world.
Four distinct Erró works have been selected for the Sandvika exhibition that will run from Jan 14th to June 23rd:
Angoulême, Homage to the comic book, 1982/2020
Silver Surfer Saga, 1999/2020
All works are exhibition copies in digital pigment print
