Louise Nevelson

“I make collages. I join the shattered world creating a new harmony.” – Louise Nevelson (1899–1988, Ukraine/USA).

Famous primarily for her monumental, terse black or white wood reliefs, Nevelson explored the many possibilities of collage throughout her long artistic career. At first abstract and symmetrical, these works gradually grew smaller and more emotional and intuitive. Now, these remarkable and multifaceted objects are being shown for the first time in the Nordic region – a rediscovery of a great but overlooked oeuvre.
