For the first time, The National Museum presents a solo exhibition of works by Aase Texmon Rygh (b. 1925), one of the most important pioneers in modern Norwegian sculpture.
Texmon Rygh is particularly known for her Möbius sculptures, a series of works characterised by a highly simplified and condensed form of expression, based on the mathematical Möbius shape.
In recent years, Texmon Rygh has received increasing national and international recognition. In 2001 she was appointed Officer of the Order of St. Olav, and in 2012 was represented at the leading international art exhibition dOCUMENTA 13 in Kassel, Germany.
“Aase Texmon Rygh. Towards Infinity” demonstrates the wide range of Aase Texmon Rygh’s work, including sculptures from the 1950s up to the present day. Sketches, models and other documentation material from her lifelong artistic career convey the story of one of Norway’s first modernists.
