Svend- Allan Sørensen
Museum Jorn is proud to invite installation tastes , hunter and graphic designer , Svend- Allan Sørensen (b. 1975) in the drawing gallery at Museum Jorn. Svend- Allan Sørensen was born in Jutland Kjellerup , currently residing in Odense and graduated from Funen Art Academy in 2002. He has worked in many genres , but the exhibition at the Museum Jorn focuses on the artist's graphic work.

Svend- Allan Sørensen already has many exhibitions behind him , but none of these have focused on the graphic to a greater extent . Museum Jorn therefore sees a unique opportunity to develop precisely the side of the young artist's production in context - through more than 100 brand new and not yet exhibited lithographs , etchings , linoleum and woodcuts.

The exhibition Country and Concept is a current exhibition which shows Svend- Allan Sørensen's graphic production as it unfolds and develops in the moment - which it does at a rapid pace!

The exhibition consists of over 100 newly produced works that Svend- Allan Sørensen do include the Faroe Islands - armed with a Remington 870 shotgun cal 12/76 , novels , photographs, lithographic stones , acid, and , not least , professional assistance from the press Jan Andersson from Faroe lithographic workshop < em> Steinprent < / em >, which among other things also press for Per Kirkeby.

The Jutland mud
In his graphic work shows Svend- Allan Sørensen his brutally honest compared to the actual materials - ink , wood , stone , press and plate. The graphics materiality and its analogue , printed nature. Many of the workers are in the intersection between word and image where the meanings are formed , switches and broken. Svend- Allan Sørensen's works are often associated with whimsy , playfulness and curiosity. Both installations with stuffed prey in strange poses and the whimsical bird- filled phrases with double meanings and references.

In many of the works from the brand new , graphic production suggest , however, that there is a dawning seriously going on in the young artist. Lunet is still present, but it gets increasingly joined by a sensual and poetic expression that is at once more refined and more violently . Svend- Allan Sørensen talks about the need to " relate to the Jutland mud from which he comes " - the hunter and the hunted , the rural and the language , naturalness and rigor .

All these elements and aspects are brought into play in the exhibition Country and Concept, which unfolds a young artist's graphic production and love to the experiment and ink . Museum Jorn is very pleased to be able to show the many new works and share an eye-opening experience with the audience this summer.
