Christen Sveaas Art Foundation: Tracing Absence

Tue-Wed: 11-6pm; Thu: 11-9pm (Late Opening); Fri-Sun: 11-6pm

Selected from the Christen Sveaas Art Foundation, Tracing Absence invites the viewer to experience absence as a process, one which encourages us to confront our discomforts and find reflection in emptiness. Absence is everywhere, existing beyond a vacant space or blank canvas; it can be found in crowded rooms, relationships, people, in nature and society.

This selection balances these aspects, navigating their relationship with one another and with the viewer. Two works of sound art from artists Joseph Sergi and Yiskāh will feature in the space, providing viewers with the opportunity for total immersion in these challenging artworks.

Visit Galleries 5 and 6 to discover this display of works from artists Andreas Gursky, Wolfgang Tillmans, Nan Goldin, Francesca Woodman, Sophie Calle, Zanele Muholi, James White, Mikkel McAlinden, Ola Kolehmainen, and Ken Matsubara.
