Bjarne Melgaard : Jealous
A selection of drawings, aquarelles, paintings, sculptures and installations to give reader an insightful experience and better understanding of Bjarne Melgaard artistic projects. In the heyday on neo-conceptualism in the middle of the 90ties Bjarne Melgaard entered the Norwegian art scene with expressionistic and chaotic paintings, sculptures and installations full of desire and fearful longings staged between fiction and reality. For more then 15 years the artist has been traveling extensively, residing in different countries and cities, creating multiples worlds and breaking artistic boundaries, questioning moral limits and exhibiting his visions in galleries and museum and most of the time creating provoking extreme strong reactions.
This book is also the catalogue of a mid carrier retrospective exhibition at the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, Oslo (2010).
