Kunstverein Schwerin - Asger H. Gjerdevik, Frederik Næblerød & Lone Haugaard Madsen, 2019
From November 15, 2019 - January 19, 2020 the group exhibition IN FULL SUNLIGHT
presenting works by the Danish artists Asger Harbou Gjerdevik, Frederik Næblerød and Lone Haugaard Madsen is on show at Kunstverein in Schwerin, Germany.
IN FULL SUNLIGHT presents contemporary positions from Denmark with the disparate manifestations of minimalist abstraction as well as variants of new figuration. The aim is not a superficial juxtaposition of these artistic approaches, but a reference to the covariance of structures, varieties and experimental fields within contemporary Danish art, which – especially in the compatibility of these simultaneous approaches – query the painting on its conditions and possibilities.
In his expressive paintings and drawings Frederik Næblerød takes a reference to social issues and the world of things – in a purposeful striking way: a fishing boat, a watering can, a bird. Not infrequently, the simplistic figurative representations, as well as his small-format sculptures, tilt over to the fantastic and grotesque.
On several levels, however, Asger Harbou Gjerdevik combines figurative content with abstract color elements and other materials on his large-format canvases in a collage-like overlay. Through the abundance of interrelated elements and partly scenic representations, he generates visual complexity and the suggestion of a narrative content.
