Andreas Eriksson, Lillehammer Kunstmuseum, 13 April – 25 August

The exhibition “The house is leaning, but the curtains hang straight” is the largest exhibition by the renowned artist Andreas Eriksson in Norway. The overarching theme of the exhibition is the encounter between nature and architecture. At Lillehammer Art Museum, textiles, paintings, and sculptural objects are the dominant expressions. Several of the works are newly created and specially adapted to the museum’s architecture. Andreas Eriksson gained early international recognition, notably at Art Basel Statement in 2007, where he won the prestigious Baloise Art Prize, and later at the Nordic Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2011. The themes have largely revolved around experiences of and with nature. In recent years, interest in architectural elements has become more pronounced in his works. In the exhibition at Lillehammer Art Museum, nature and architecture come together.
