STÅLE VOLD & FREDRIK VÆRSLEV

Rubbish
14 December, 2012 – 19 January, 2013

PRESS RELEASE:

Johan Berggren Gallery is delighted to present Rubbish, an exhibition by Ståle Vold (b.1952) and Fredrik Værslev (b.1979).

The show consists of a new series of “shelf paintings”. The latter is an ongoing series of semi-individual and loosely defined paintings where Fredrik Værslev has invited a number of artists to consummate intentionally meager and unfinished works of his own for a specific occasion. A few simple rules apply: a standard sized and sometimes painted piece of plywood with a shelf mounted onto it is given to the invited artist to complete.

Rubbish, with Ståle Vold, is the seventh installation of the series. Former collaborations include Nicolas Ceccaldi, Matias Faldbakken, Eivind Nesterud, Øyvind Zahl, Mother Nature, and Dan Rees.
