Being exhibited for the first time in Asia, Slyngstad says she is particularly happy to show in Korea: “I am excited to receive feedback on my work. South Korea is known for having a strong interest in contemporary art and is an important actor on this art form. That is why it is important for me to join this exhibition.”
Slyngstad works primarily with figurative paintings, and the painting technique is oil on canvas. In her series “Modern Classics” she uses architectural buildings, often modern and private apartments, as a starting point. From there she uses photography and studies, where the paintings are composed with a focus on the relationship between figures and space.
She has held 15 solo exhibitions, with the most recent being at the OLS contemporary in Oslo, 2011. In addition she has taken part in several group exhibitions, with a highlight being the 53rd International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennial in 2009 where she represented Norway in the Nordic pavilion. One of her paintings which will be exhibited is Sverre Fehn I, and it depicts the Norwegian architect Sverre Fehn’s famous pavilion for the Venice Biennial.
The Ice Man exhibition lasts from 2 February -25 March, and is open daily except Mondays from 11 am – 7 pm.
