Louisiana print with the work, Hypnos, (2021), by the Swedish painter, Karin Mamma Andersson (b. 1962), which Louisiana presented in 2021 with the exhibition, Humdrum Days. Mamma Andersson stands as one of the most important painters of her generation and Louisiana presented her for the first time in large detail in Denmark. The work is printed on extra strong, uncoated paper.
About Hypnos , Mamma Andersson says that it is both new and old. That there are elements from her time at the Academy of Arts in Stockholm 30 years before. The face comes from an old issue of Vogue, while the cat is from a cat book: "I think that the woman is doing some kind of training for the cat, but that it doesn't want to join in. The cat is looking for help from the viewer", says Mamma Andersson, who believes that it is probably herself who "stands and thunders", as she explained it to Lousisiana Magasin no. 53 - with the addition that all paintings are in a way self-portraits: You draw from your own well , because what else would one scoop from?
Mamma Andersson builds her paintings on the basis of art historical references and found photographs, films and historical clippings. It is painting on painting, pictures on pictures when Andersson's works open up in a universe of suggestive and emotionally charged narratives in vast landscapes, interiors and portraits:
The Nordic landscape with slopes, spruce forests and the special, contrasting light. Dolls, often as substitutes for people, give the painting a solidified, object-like character. People with their backs turned, whose faces turned away make the image mysterious. And the color black, often in several shades and materials, oversprayed or roughly applied so that there is a marked darkness in the image, a darkness that the artist himself associates with death.
Louisiana's exhibition presented 60 Mamma Andersson's works - including 10 new images, produced especially for the exhibition.
