NORDIC CONTEMPORARY presents the exhibition 'TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING', showing ten contemporary Nordic artists, introducing new interpretations of paintings, sculptures, drawings and video. Besides being connected geographically, the invited artists are also connected by an interest in high culture meets low culture, polished meets raw, natural meets clinical.
The Nordic region is a stage where the beautiful life is acted out, resulting in a grow- ing distance to the living life. “TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING” is an exhibition about how we exist in this condition. Not necessarily to reflect on it, but to work on it from within, looking out. Many of the artworks represented are satisfied with pointing back at the work itself, rather than a certain discourse, while pointing towards a freedom and subjectivity, with an existential commitment to the material.
The titles reference 'a good thing' as being something utopian, while 'too much' stands for something oversaturated, to the limit and beyond: mental states, material, and media. The artists are represented in a broad range of expressions: High culture meets low culture, polished meets raw, natural meets clinical in an eclectic brew that aims to clash more than to harmonize; yet somehow linked through the artists view.
