Fredrik Værslev
All Around Amateur


Edited by Martin Clark, Anne Pontégnie, Steinar Sekkingstad
Texts by Ina Blom, Martin Clark, Anne Pontégnie, Steinar Sekkingstad

Fredrik Værslev’s work navigates between different painterly traditions, and demonstrates the possibilities and relevance of the medium today. He treats his paintings as objects, often created through more or less laborious, serial, or deterministic processes where time itself, as well as various external factors, become active cocreators in the making of the work. In several series, he has left his paintings outdoors for long periods of time, allowing the weather and external wear to complete the work. Other works employ apparently clichéd techniques, motifs, or art-historical quotations (i.e., dripping and splattering). More recently, Værslev has been working with a tool used for marking painted lines on roads and sports fields.

Published in conjunction with Fredrik Værselv’s exhibition “All Around Amateur” at the Bergen Kunsthall and Le Consortium, Dijon, this publication, comes in two different versions, with each book comprising 320 one-to-one digital images scanned from eight of Værslev’s new “sunset” paintings. Each canvas produces a total of eighty scanned images, which are reproduced in the book sequentially, left to right, top to bottom. The full-bleed scans in each “volume,” together, reproduce an entire wall of paintings from the exhibition. The paintings, based on photographs of sunsets taken by Værslev on his iPhone from airplane windows, evoke the work of art-historical figures such as J. M. W. Turner, Mark Rothko, and Edvard Munch.

The catalogue also includes newly commissioned texts by Ina Blom, Martin Clark, and Steinar Sekkingstad as well as an interview with artist Anne Pontégnie.

Texte Zur Kunst #103
SEPTEMBER 2016 “POETRY”

TZK #103 addresses “poetry,” a language form central to the recent shift toward affect in contemporary critical writing. Seeing the “artist-poet” as a vital site for the intersection of politics, affect, and digitality, we consider her voice and her currency from various perspectives, pro and con, across generations, analyzing her rising success, also asking what is gained and lost in this move from “rational” thought to what one feels? Scanning populist poetry, anarchist poetry, post-millennial net-poetry, the poetry of surplus-language and social media, the art historical poetic/poet-turned-object, and shades of fading Poesie, this issue, conceived by the editors with John Kelsey and Isabelle Graw explores how the seeming immediacy of #poetry and the suggestion of a hyper-personal voice correlates with current economic demand to claim visibility.

Fredrik Værslev
East Bound and Down


Catalogue produced in an edition of 1000 copies to accompany the exhibition Fredrik Værslev “East Bound and Down” at The Power Station, Dallas, April 9 – June 20, 2014.

The Power Station is a not-for-profit contemporary art space in Exposition Park, Dallas, Texas, founded by Janelle and Alden Pinnell in 2011. It is housed in a former Dallas Power & Light building which was constructed in 1920, and hosts large scale exhibitions which compliment the building’s raw architecture. For each of its international exhibitions, The Power Station works with the artists to produce a publication in conjunction with their project, limited to 1000 copies. Its programming also includes a summer exhibition and additional events each year. The building includes an apartment where artists can live as they create and build their installations. The first exhibitor was American artist Oscar Tuazon.
