In collaboration with Podium Oslo, Woodpecker Projects proudly presents a solo show by Kevin Malcolm opening on May 19th!
The show’s starting point is at the Musée Guimet in Paris and it’s collection of Asian art amassed by industrialist and traveller Emile Guimet. His fortune was made in the production of a synthetic ultramarine pigment essential as a whitening agent. Not only describing the colour, Outremer (Ultramarine) translates directly from French as overseas and was the name given to colonial territories and to military service performed there. In these works the role of the artist as collector and exhibitor of images and objects in a digital era is questioned and parallels are made with 19th Century traditions of collecting.
