Explore one of the world's most versatile artists work and mind at his own gallery
GALLERI FINSRUD, located in Frogn municipality of Norway.
At 05.45am on April 28th, 1996, Reidar Finsrud started up his perpetuum mobile. Running without an external source of energy, the installation is still going strong and could run for eternity if not stopped by wear and tear.
This now world known perpetual mobile came as a climax in the line of the inventors’ numerous technical constructions and can be viewed at one of Galleri Finsruds two locations.
The size of the galleries totals a whole 2500 square meters and forms the settings around Reidar Finsruds production and activities. Considered one of the world’s most versatile artist, he works within the majority of thinkable formats and techniques; painting, drawing, graphic and sculpturing has held his own art school since 1975.
Counting his “work years” with the production of 110 normal annual works since the age of 16, Finsrud adds himself up to be a 128-year-old man – that is if age was calculated by effort. He has been present on this earth though, by the Gregorian calculation of time, since year 1946.
