Frames And Seconds
01 April - 09 May 2017
Lars Morell’s paintings, sculptures, prints and installations have their origin in fin de siecle illusionism and inventions. His works, for example the Shadow Canvasses (2013 – ongoing), confront us with the shadows of the past: the trickery and contraptions of the pioneers of theatrical and cinematic illusion are treated with nostalgia, but may actually tell us something about our 21st century lives that are increasingly guided by mediated – and illusionary – experience.
Lars Morell °1980 Kristiansand, lives and works in Oslo. He has exhibited amongst others at: Palais de Tokyo, Paris; ISCP New York; MUHKA Antwerp, Galleri Brandstrup, Oslo; Galleri Haaken, Oslo; CINNNAMON, Rotterdam; Nationalmuseum, Berlin; Galerie Jette Rudolph, Berlin; Wentrup, Berlin; Choi & Lager, Cologne and Kristiansand Kunsthall, Kristiansand.
