Opening on September 8, 2006, David Zwirner is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by Swedish artist Jockum Nordström. The artist recently exhibited at the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, OH; The Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; Liljevalchs Konsthall, Stockholm, Sweden; the Tate Modern in London, England; and the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Sweden. This will be Nordström's fourth exhibition at the gallery and will take place at the 525 West 19th Street space.
Elegantly constructed, Nordström's settings are often frighteningly benign, yet they allude to decisive themes: manual labor, overt sexuality, and everyday social dynamics. The exhibition will include several collages as well as a number of new works on paper. Each of the works offers a glimpse of an eerily private encounter or a sinister tryst.
