Peder Lund (NO)

After a twenty-year period of art dealership, Peder Lunds extensive work with institutions and collectors in Norway and Scandinavia have enabled him to foster lasting relationships between his clients and internationally acclaimed artists. In November 2009, the decision was made to establish an exhibition programme intending to broaden the dialogue with the general public and enhancing Oslo’s position in the global art consciousness.

"I’m interested in the slippery slope that runs from the good taste, the sharp style, the cutting edge aesthetics to the overboard propositions, the tasteless gestures and a deep desperation. Down in the ditch where the all-out grotesque stuff lies. You could say that my work is trying to be all of those things in one go. Or, rather, that whole damn slope. I slide down it all the time, bumping into this and that on the way, going back to the top. Like a Helter Skelter of gesmäck. And paint is sort of the lube."
