The Norwegian artist Per Barclay (b. 1955) is presented in a solo exhibition with representative works from his 40-year artistic career.
Barclay’s practice encompasses photography, sculpture, and installation and makes use of materials such as stone, steel, aluminium, glass, water, and waste oil. Several works in the survey exhibition contextualise Barclay within the Arte Povera movement, and many works have influenced the work of several generations of Norwegian artists.
The exhibition is curated by Ana María Bresciani.
