COPENHAGEN.- GL Strand presents Acid Anarchy and Systematic Order - Nils Erik Gjerdevik, on view through January 18, 2009. From the 8th of November the entire third floor in the exhibition hall GL STRAND will be taken over by an insistent installation by the renowned Danish artist Nils Erik Gjerdevik whose works of bright colours and ruptured forms challenge our perception of abstract art.

With a both playful and orderly installation specifically created for the gallery space of GL STRAND Gjerdevik meets the audience with an inferno of the senses which he refers to as “anti-authoritarian.”

Nils Erik Gjerdevik is born in Norway in 1964. He studied at The Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in 1984 and has since held a central position in Danish abstract art. He is known for his original and innovative approach to the history of abstract and expressionistic art and has contributed to a number of public decorations, including one at Copenhagen University Amager and Copenhagen Opera House.

Nils Erik Gjerdevik’s images balance on the border of the recognizable and the unknown, the orderly and the expressive. In a compact installation of both painting, drawing and ceramic sculpture Gjerdevik allows for a dynamic dialogue between the works to unfold.

”Everything is carried out in a precisely measured relationship between intuition and control. The synthetic colour scheme of Gjerdevik’s paintings smells of plastic and Donald Duck, but at the same time demonstrates refined interplay. Hidden in Gjerdevik’s works are cryptic taxonomies which again and again are challenged by pattern breaks and sudden mutations”, says Curator Pernille Fonnesbech.

The exhibition is accompanied by a richly illustrated catalogue and texts by art historian Christian Foghmar and visual artists Ferdinand Ahm Krag and Christian Vind. The exhibition is on display simultaneously with the exhibition KARA WALKER.
