During the spring 2022, the Danish contemporary artist Tal R (b. 1967) will exhibit sculptures and drawings at Artipelag. The exhibition The Wrongside consists of two parts, one with sculptures in plaster and bronze, and the other with drawings in charcoal and chalk.

Tal R has become famous for his colourful palette and playful expressions. His world of ideas contains a circular time perspective in a constant interaction between contemporary and historical perspectives. In his art you may find scientific knowledge but equally often also fictional characters. It is this remarkable mix of fact and fairy-tale, this duality, that gave the exhibition the name the Wrongside.

The exhibition at Artipelag is divided in two parts where one part consists of around 100 drawings in charcoal and crayon displayed on a wall. The motifs of the drawings range from the child's drawings to masterpieces reminiscent of the great modernists. They resemble more like archetypes, C G Jung referred to them as prime examples, cutting through our civilisation independent of cultural differences. Tal R forges these archetypes into his very own imagery world.

The second part of the exhibition at Artipelag consists of 35 sculptures in plaster and bronze. These two categories may seem worlds apart but represent an exciting contrast. The plasters are of a more playful character while the bronzes give a more historical appearance.

The exhibitions open Saturday January 15, 2022 and is shown until May 1, 2022.
