Idun Baltzersen – The transformation
22 sept 2018 - 20 jan 2019
Idun Baltzersen (born 1987) works with large woodcuts where the blocks are integrated into magnificent installations with drawings, graphics and textiles. She works figuratively with different techniques, mainly woodcut, dry point, linocut and drawing. Her themes often concern the lives of young women and their relationship with themselves and the outside world. As a viewer, one is overwhelmed by how the powerful artworks contrast the tender thematic.
Idun was born in Trondheim, Norway, but lives and works in Stockholm. She graduated from Konstfack (Art Academy) in Stockholm in 2014 and has since had a number of group and solo exhibitions, including at Magnus Karlsson Gallery in Stockholm, Moderna Museet in Malmö, Uppsala Art Museum and the Gallery Thomassen in Gothenburg. She has also participated in artist’s residence in Germany and Iceland.
The exhibition at Teckningsmuseet is named “The transformation” and will be shown Sept 22, 2018–Jan 20, 2019.
