Lizzie Fitch / Ryan Trecartin

Overview

23 February–20 May, Astrup Fearnley Museet

In the last decade, the critically acclaimed artist duo Lizzie Fitch (b. 1981) and Ryan Trecartin (b. 1981) have created large-scale video installations that examine the effects of technology and social media on identity formation and the mutability of language.

Sculpture has always played a role in Fitch and Trecartin’s practice, both on and off the screen. Here the concept of “scripting” is foundational to the way the artists set the parameters for interaction, whether between humans, objects, or even environments, treating the source materials as words in poetic compositions.

Astrup Fearnley Museet will exhibit one of the artists’ room size “sculptural theaters” Plaza Point (2009), alongside a major presentation of Fitch and Trecartin’s sculptures. This is the first museum show to focus on their sculptures as autonomous works, placed in an indoor “sculpture garden” within the main museum space. The works, made from an overwhelming variety of traditional and non-traditional materials, are single figures or complex narrative groups that express a simultaneously grotesque and celebratory view of human nature.

Curators: Gunnar B. Kvaran and Therese Möllenhoff
