‘Paraschematic’, a solo exhibition by Kristian Kragelund’s that explores objecthood of painting and the historical resonance of sculptural materiality.


Display Gallery is proud to present ‘Paraschematic’, Kristian Kragelund’s first solo show in London. Kragelund concerns himself with the objecthood of painting and the historical resonance of sculptural materiality in his meditative wall-based works. Through a weave of formalist and conceptual painting, the utilization of oxidization techniques and by appropriation of new and recycled industrial materials, he poses critical questions regarding the social and discursive histories of Western modernity. Yet from this ambivalent glare between industrialism and spirituality, his work perpetually attempts to re-negotiate the value of the physical object and to engage the established systems and structures defining art and contemporary culture.

Kristian Kragelund (1987) is a Danish artist living and working in London. He works in a variety of mediums with a primary focus on painting and sculpture in the expanded field. Since he graduated BA Fine Art from Central Saint Martins in 2014 he has shown his work across the UK and Europe including a solo show at the Copenhagen based gallery Tom Christoffersen and at Finale Art File in Manila, The Philippines.
