NOUA is pleased to welcome you to a free artist tour of Sverre Gullesen's exhibition 'Strategier i betong' on Saturday 28 October at 14.00 in the NOUA Exhibition Space.

The works of Sverre Gullesen have a material-based starting point. Gullesen presents sculptures in concrete cast on site, where textile forms are filled with concrete. The gravity of the mass pulls the contents down into the form, and the material's density in combination with the drying process affects the shape and tactility of the sculpture. Along with Gullesen's work, archival photos from Erling Viksjø and the National Museum's archive are presented. Viksjø's buildings challenge many people's ideas about what constitutes ugly and beautiful architecture. He was innovative and had a unique collaboration with several artists. The archive images look at his extensive collaboration with artists such as Carl Nesjar and Pablo Picasso.
