Fredrik Raddum at Galleri Brandstrup

Kunstneren Fredrik Raddums (f. 1973) nye utstilling “Cover Up” åpner torsdag 8. januar på Galleri Brandstrup i Oslo. Raddum er utdannet ved Statens Kunstakademi i Bergen og Oslo, og er kjent for sine figurative skulpturer og installasjonskunst. Med sine konseptuelle skulpturer skaper Raddum en verden av figurer i forskjellige situasjoner, som mest ligner en dystopisk tegneserie. “Cover Up” utforsker hans selvlagde univers videre, men denne gangen er hovedmotivet rettet mot visuelle elementer i det skjulte og uventede. Ved å skjule skulpturene under forskjellige objekter, skaper Raddum en visuell effekt som gir nysgjerrighet og inviterer publikum til selv å gå inn i hans fengslende og underlige univers.

The Norwegian artist Fredrik Raddums (b. 1973) new exhibition “Cover Up” opens Thursday 8th of January, at Galleri Brandstrup in Oslo. Raddum studied at the National Art Academy in Bergen and Oslo, and is known for his figurative sculptures and installation art. With his conceptual sculptures, Raddum creates a world of characters in different situations which resembles a dystopian and strange cartoon. The exhibition also explores his self-made universe, but this time the main subject is directed towards visual elements of the hidden and unexpected. By hiding sculptures underneath various objects, Raddum creates a visual effect that triggers the viewers curiosity and invites the audience to enter his captivating and quirky universe.
