Interview with Jockum Nordstram and Marcel Dzama
Published on the occasion of the 2010 exhibition at David Zwirner, New York. This is the first time Andersson and Nordstrom presented work in concurrent solo shows. This catalog focuses on their work from the late 1980's to 2010. There are over 200 full-color plates and numerous family snapshots that both artist use as their source material.
The Swedish artist couple Mamma Andersson and Jockum Nordstrom have been at the forefront of contemporary figurative art since the late 1980s. Updating Vuillard for a post-Hitchcock age, Andersson paints beguilingly eerie interiors and landscapes. Nordstrom’s detailed collages, watercolors, and drawings occupy a more folkloric realm peopled by historical and contemporary characters enacting sexual and social roles across broad narrative panoramas.
