Represented by acclaimed David Zwirner London, Swedish artist Jockum Nordström boasts a celebrated and undeniably modern body of work.
Featuring eclectic collages, exquisite watercolors, detailed drawings, and architectural sculptures, Nordström’s ouervre is diverse yet aesthetically unified.
Through January, the gallery will proudly present For the insects and the hounds, an exhibition featuring new sculptures and works on paper from Nordström. Inspired by the artist’s experiences in Gotland, Sweden’s largest island, For the insects and the hounds conveys an innate focus on nature and evokes the rusticity of the island’s rural landscape.
To coincide with the exhibition, David Zwirner London will also host a book launch celebrating the reprinting of Who is sleeping on my pillow, a book by the artist and his wife, Mamma Anderson. Both artists will be in attendance to sign copies of their charming book, which features 200 full-color plates depicted “alongside favorite family snapshots and source materials”. Co-hosted by David Zwirner Books – the gallery’s stand-alone publishing house – and the London Review of Books, this exciting event will take place in the gallery space on Friday, 28 November, at 6:30 PM.
Be sure to check out For the insects and the hounds, on view from 28 November though 24 January 2015 at David Zwirner London!
