Flawless Imperfections: Fredrik Norn exhibits at Galleri Lars Olsen in Copenhagen
Fredrik Noren, Non rigid shaper definition, 2012.

COPENHAGEN.- The use and exploration of everyday objects have been an important foundation in Fredrik Norn’s artistic practice.

By changing, distorting, adding or removing something from the ordinary, he seeks to question form and function, and how we define and value our surroundings.

His works question the object, our interpretation of same and our humanity.

The exhibition “Flawless Imperfections” at Galleri Lars Olsen constitutes the second part of a related exhibition exploring the broken. The first part “Break Room” is simultaneously showing at Galleri Thomas Wallner (SE) until 25 November 2012.

By letting well known objects change shapes at the expense of their original function, questions are raised about how defects, scars and cracks can make something unique. The term “broken” is explored through the alteration of appearances and functions of everyday objects, thereby transforming them into something exclusive.

The obvious decay within these objects makes them useless from one point of view, but simultaneously allows them to unfold as beautiful and entirely unique creations.

The exhibition highlights the unique as a strength by emphasising that the broken, the damaged and the deformed in the works are just the very things that are the most interesting; that becoming different through experiences and the damages done from them, can be positive and that defects within both surface and functionality can be experienced as both beautiful and interesting.

Since graduating from Malm Art Academy in 2007, Fredrik Norn has exhibited actively both in Sweden and internationally. Over the past years he has shown his works at, among other places, Vxj konsthall (SE), Nils Aas Kunstverksted (NO), Gteborgs konsthall (SE), Marabouparkens annex (SE), Malm Konstmuseum (SE), Galerie Alexandra Saheb (DE), Galleri Arnstedt (SE) and Hannover Kunstverein (DE).

Fredrik Norn has made several public works in his homeland, among others at Sundbyberg town centre (SE) and at the Linnaeus University in Vxj (SE). He is represented at a number of institutions, such as Malm Art Museum (SE), the city of Vxj (SE), rebro University (SE), the city of Karlstad (SE) and Nils Aas Kunstverksted (NO). His work is included in museums and private collections.
