Jockum Nordström: All I Have Learned and Forgotten Again

About

Camden Arts Centre presents a major survey of work by Swedish artist Jockum Nordström, bringing together collages, graphite drawings and architectural sculptures which represent the breadth of his work from the 1990s to the present. The title All I have Learned and Forgotten Again harks back to the wisdom and magic of childhood, a lament of the lost innocence that gives way to the demands of an adult world. A simple charm and naivety runs throughout Nordström's work, yet it is not without inner complexity: His characters, whether they are riding horses, sailing boats, making love or playing music, are constantly in action. But as the scenes unfold, they reveal imagery of a strange, sinister, at times even violent, nature. Often compared to folklore and fairytale in its weaving of fantasy and reality, Nordström's world is at once magical and unsettling.
