TORBJØRN RØDLAND AT SERPENTINE SACKLER

TORBJØRN RØDLAND—THE TOUCH THAT MADE YOU, the artists’s first exhibition in the United Kingdom, brings together photographic works from the last twenty years as well as Rødland’s 2005 animated film 132 BPM.

“Rødland’s approach to image-making – using analogue photography in mostly staged scenarios – draws attention to the constructed nature of the image, while leaving open the potential for unexpected outcomes. That his images hold the viewer’s gaze is not only the result of a certain pleasure in the act of looking, but also the indirect, uncertain nature of their messages.”*

 

TORBJØRN RØDLAND—THE TOUCH THAT MADE YOU , through November 19.

SERPENTINE SACKLER GALLERY, West Carriage Drive, Hyde Park, London.
