Summer Exhibition 2011
26 June – 31 August
Featured artists: Knud Odde (* 1955) from Denmark and Jan Håfström (*1937) from Sweden
“Cosmic Sleepwalker” is the title of the annual Summer Exhibition at the Nordic House, and refers to the artistic room, or state of mind into which the artists want us to enter. The exhibition is inspired by e.g. a monastery in Italy, poets and philosophers and a fighter plane from the Second World War. It questions life and art. Time is relative. Absence and presence are part of it, as are romance and irony, sadness and comfort, the absurd and the grotesque. New relations are established, others are cut off. In this artistic room opposites disappear and are renewed.
The exhibition is open Monday-Saturday from 10.00 – 17.00 and Sundays from 14.00 – 17.00.
