Who is sleeping on my pillow: Mamma Andersson & Jockum Nordström
Texts by Paolo Colombo and Anders Krüger. Poem by Stig Claesson. Interview between Marcel Dzama and Jockum Nordström.
The Swedish artist couple Mamma Andersson (born 1962) and Jockum Nordström (born 1963) have been at the forefront of contemporary figurative painting since the late 1980s. Updating Vuillard for a post-Hitchcock age, Andersson paints beguilingly eerie untenanted interiors and landscapes. Nordström’s detailed collages, paintings and drawings occupy a more folkloric realm peopled by historical and contemporary characters enacting sexual and social roles across broad narrative panoramas. Published on the occasion of the exhibition at David Zwirner, New York, Who is sleeping on my pillow showcases Andersson and Nordström’s work from the late 1980s to the present day in over 200 full-color plates, alongside favorite family snapshots and source materials.
