Åsdam exhibition at Tate Modern

3rd February 2011, Comments 0 comments

A retrospective program of films and single channel video, and screening of new work by Norwegian artist Knut Åsdam, will take place at London's Tate Modern.

Knut Åsdam has been active with exhibitions, publications and broadcast on the international art-scene for more than 10 years. He has exhibited widely at Tate Britain, London, Venice Biennial, Künsthalle Bern, Istanbul Biennial, Museum of Contemporary Art, Oslo, Manifesta7, Moderna Museet, Stockholm, P.S.1 MoMa, NYC, and Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, among others. Feature articles on his work have been published in Artforum, Grey Room, Le Monde Diplomatique, Untitled Magazine and many more.

In a strongly visual and spatial manner with emphasis on the experience of the viewer, Åsdam utilises sound, film, video, photography and architecture to investigate the politics of space and the boundaries of subjectivity. These concerns are often related to themes of dissidence and to analysis of space in terms of desire, usage and history. Four categories are essential to Åsdam’s work; ‘Speech’, ‘Living’, ‘Sexualities’ and ‘Struggle’.
