Overview

The Norwegian artist Per Barclay opens the new exhibition year at KODE, presenting a selection of his iconic oil rooms in Tårnsalen, KODE 4. The series of oil rooms are a central part of Per Barclay's oeuvre from the end of the 1980s until today. The works have mainly taken form as large format photographs of different interiors, where the floor is covered with oil, later also in other fluids such as wine, water, blood and milk. The primary effect is disquieting reflections – beautiful, yet brutal. The rooms he seeks for these works range from palaces and churches to slaughterhouses and North Norwegian boathouses. The exhibition "Per Barclay. Oil Rooms" will show a selection of works from this continuing project in Barclay's artistic car

The Norwegian artist Per Barclay opens the new exhibition year at KODE, presenting a selection of his iconic oil rooms in Tårnsalen, KODE 4.

The series of oil rooms are a central part of Per Barclay's oeuvre from the end of the 1980s until today. The works have mainly taken form as large format photographs of different interiors, where the floor is covered with oil, later also in other fluids such as wine, water, blood and milk. The primary effect is disquieting reflections – beautiful, yet brutal. The rooms he seeks for these works range from palaces and churches to slaughterhouses and North Norwegian boathouses.

The exhibition "Per Barclay. Oil Rooms" will show a selection of works from this continuing project in Barclay's artistic career, starting with his cover for Art Forum in 1990 until the present day.

– This is the beginning of a commitment to contemporary Norwegian art at the museum in the years to come, says KODE's director Petter Snare. Snare was appointed as director in October 2017.

– We want to focus on the rich and multilayered art scene in Norway – starting with Per Barclay. Barclay is one of the most prolific Norwegian artists, having exhibited extensively internationally through the last four decades.
