It is with both pride and pleasure that Galleri Tom Christoffersen announces that the gallery now represents Øivind Nygårds Estate. This we mark with the exhibition The art of displacement. In his artistic practice – which span over four decades – Øivind Nygård (1948-2010) created uncompromising and perfectionist sculptures, done in simple materials and colours. Full of contrasts the works contain both abstract and naturalistic elements which collide and create the sensation of familiarity without completely resembling what they remind us of. The works in the exhibition take their departure in the traditional elements of sculpture; light and shadow, stagnation and movement, abstraction and figuration. The exhibition holds works from four decades, including Inertia, min elskede (1983), Metrolegeme (1992), Boy on Circle, Shooting Boy on Square, Shooting Boy on Circle (2001) and Sofastykke (2010). The exhibition title The art of displacement is borrowed from Anne Ring Petersen’s essay, which under same name presents and treats Nygård’s sculptural works. The essay is part of the book Øivind Nygård. Værker og tekster published in 2008.
