No More Jokes

The art of Terje Nicolaisen (*1964) strikes a fine balance between sincerity and mischievous irony. No More Jokes emphasises the former through works on paper that constitute a different vein of Nicolaisen’s production, otherwise renowned for conceptual works in the tradition of institutional critique or dealing with public space, always tongue in cheek. Nicolaisen’s skilled treatment of paper and pigment, most notably in portraits of characters both familiar and fictional, is abundantly presented in this first internationally published volume.

Goya’s Dog

For an exhibition at Bomuldsfabrikken Kunsthall in Arendal, due to open 18th march 2017, Nicolaisen tries out yet another way of experimenting with the notion of the contemporary artist. An epiphany at the Prado museum in Madrid, in the hall of Goya's Black Paintings, sets of another search for the big Why.
