Through the Woods

Marit Victoria Wulff Andreassen

06. Mar 2015 - 24. May 2015

Marit Victoria Wulff Andreassen is one of our era’s most interesting and singular artists. With motifs centering on the body and gender, plus her critical questioning of aspects related to identity and sexuality, she draws our attention to core human experiences. Her works can be seen as vexing and titillating, beautiful and repulsive, all at the same time. 

Even as a student, Wulff Andreassen’s artistic practice generated great interest; before she graduated, her drawings were purchased by Norway’s National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design. Since then her works have been incorporated into several key collections, and she has exhibited in notable art institutions in Norway and abroad. Her art is also featured in central art-historical publications. The impact of it, however, extends beyond the traditional sphere of art, provoking interest amongst academics and others who work with research questions related to gender and identity. 

Despite the considerable attention and extensive exhibition activity, Through the Woods will be the first solo show Wulff Andreassen holds in a museum. 

The catalogue published in connection with the show is the first to present a comprehensive overview of her artistic practice. Along with beautiful colour reproductions of the exhibited artworks and several public commissions, the catalogue contains essays by Sigrun Åsebø, Wencke Mühleisen, Tommy Olsson, Helga Nyman and Vibece Salthe. 

The exhibition features more than 70 works created since the early 2000s, some quite recently.
