Mamma Andersson: Humdrum Days
Swedish artist Mamma Andersson is one of the most important and intriguing painters of her generation. This summer exhibition at Louisiana marks the first large-scale presentation of her work in Denmark. Andersson’s paintings open up a universe of suggestive and emotionally charged narratives: extensive landscapes where trees apparently dissolve before our eyes, interiors where painted areas abruptly open up for visions into different worlds, portraits of figures with their backs turned, and black holes where our gaze seems to be drawn into a free fall.
"These are beautiful pictures, strange pictures. They seduce, they challenge. Mamma Anderssons works somehow just seem to keep growing in the eye of the beholder." – Poul Erik Tøjner (Director, Louisiana Museum)
