TORBJØRN RØDLAND IN CONVERSATION

“In order to move on from the limitations of endless subjectivity, critical postmodern art reduced complex phenomena to a study of cultural form’s and language. Everything became political. With this analysis as a starting point I’m taking a more integral or inclusive stance. I’m not only interested in how images are being read but also in their magic and how they make us feel, how they move us. Even though photography often starts as observation, my dream is a more immersive engagement. I’m an observer longing for intimacy.” — Torbjørn Rødland*

On the opening day of his exhibition FIFTH HONEYMOON in Sweden, join Rødland at Bonniers Konsthall for a conversation with its director Magnus af Petersens.

The show includes the presentation of the artist’s film Between Fork and Ladder.

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.
