This solo exhibition by Matias Faldbakken entitled PORTRAIT PORTRAIT OF OF A A GENERATION GENERATION reflects the artist’s ongoing interest in transforming the existing languages of form that emerge from particular periods in modernism. For this project, Faldbakken has sourced iconic sculptures created in Norway in the 20th century to carry out condoned acts of vandalism. Essentially, Faldbakken transforms modernist sculpture’s aspirations toward the aerodynamically abstract and the utopially minimal by converting iconic works of ‘art’ into vessels for intoxication.
