NIKOLAI ASTRUP – Out of the Shadows

Bonfires, trolls and people in close contact with nature: this spring you can once again see the large Nikolai Astrup Collection at KODE.

The international launch of Nikolai Astrup in 2016, with the exhibition ‘Painting Norway: Nikolai Astrup’, has been a great success. Well over 100,000 people saw this exhibition that went on show in London, Oslo and Emden, and the international press have written enthusiastically about Astrup’s art.

The new exhibition ‘Nikolai Astrup – Out of the Shadows’ repeats selected themes from the touring exhibition and shows how Astrup’s art is received internationally.This spring’s show points to how childhood impressions and the mystery of night-time and darkness are important for Astrup. In the dusky twilight and in the shadows of bonfires nature awakens: trees become trolls and mountains have faces. The transition from darkness to light is grounded in Astrup’s interest in shifting moods. Here you can also find sun-drenched pictures of people in close contact with nature.
