Peder Lund is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition in Norway by one of the most influential artists of our time, Isa Genzken (German, b. 1948). On view will be a selection of the most important recent works by the artist: five major sculptural works, as well as two outstanding wall works.
Genzken’s strength is to operate fearlessly in various mediums, and her style has evolved significantly over the years. Many say that she has revived the medium of assemblage and sculpture in general. Her intelligent ensembles composed of cheap materials are loaded with art historical, symbolical, and political references, and her work is celebrated by critics and artists alike. In 2017, Genzken received the renowned Goslarer Kaiserring (eng. “Imperial Ring”) award from the city of Goslar, and this year, Genzken won the important Nasher Prize to honor her as one of the most significant artists of our time.
