After the Mothers The Sons are the Next to Die

Notes on Urknallmutter

Oliver Koerner von Gustorf

Anyone who came in contact with feminism and the ecology movement as a teenager in the late 1970s will be familiar with the idea of the mother goddess. Demeter products were en vogue, as was The White Goddess, a book by the British poet Robert Graves that Read more

Group exhibition: «Material matters»


My contribution was "Rastergeist", a wall installation consisting of two - and three - dimensional objects. The latter in air drying clay. Some images are scanned and printed polaroid. The rest is made by scanning etchings I made a few years earlier. They were enlarged up to such a degree that they became abstract images and then printed. Figures painted with gouache were added. Finally, they were mounted on cardboard. The result was human or human-like figures in a sort of desolate "lunar landscape".

Christiansands Art society 2008


Tore Magne Gundersen is a an artist who works in a variety of techniques. The exhibition in the Art Society consists of acrylic paintings on canvas. Gundersen has since the 1980s worked within a neo-expressionist tradition. A characteristic feature of neo-impressionism is simple "naïve" figurations, bold brushstrokes and bright colors. Gundersen has stuck to his expressive painting and storytelling. Such continuity helps to give the images a sincerity that is distant from the well-known postmodern irony. The fact that the artist always base his works on personal experiences and emotional states also helps to reinforce an authentic presence in this oeuvre. The often enigmatic and ambiguous images has elements of absurd humor and insists paradoxically to be taken seriously. Another characteristic of Gundersens images is a muted palette where at times cartoony characters recur  and act in different roles. Gundersen frequently uses experiences from his own childhood and youth. It's as if he's playing roles in the play of his own life. Instead of building up a classic narrative structure he works in a more open and poetic way. The images are personal without being private. They are perceived as generous, as an invitation to fantasize on your own.

Galleri GO, Stettin, Polen 1998






The exhibition consisted of a series of images, each 20x22cm. The images are based on a series of polaroid taken Easter 1983 in the kitchen of my apartment. They were then put together and called "Gloomy Sunday" (pictured above).
For the exhibition in Stettin I scanned these and other polaroid, enlarged them and mounted them on cardboard. This series I called "Kunststykket."
