Rites of passages Kunstnernes hus 01

The exhibition Rites of Passage brings together a concentrated compilation of works from The National Museum's collection and aims to examine the concept of passage both as a concrete motif and as a symbol with potential explosive power; as images of transformation, transcendence, and movement. With works by Louise Bourgeois, Matias Faldbakken, Zdenka Rusova, Harald Sohlberg, Elise Storsveen and Mattias Härenstam, amongst others.

Anne Hilde Neset, director at Kunstnernes Hus, and Stina Högkvist, collection director at The National Museum bid you welcome. Artist Mattias Härenstam shares his thoughts on the exhibition's core themes and his own piece Tross alt (2012).
