Audar Kantun25.05. – 19.06.2022
While rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic, Audar Kantun salutes the state of limbo. Floating above haunting deadlines with maestro bliss. Color codes of times unfit. Let's unravel the anti-climax with slither and dance.
Told to joy and experiment, and o’boy, he did. Rather stay in line than time out, he did not. Kantun’s new series of paintings deviated from cherubs and bloated plots, are granted abstraction, abreast with reality. Very merry soars between his fingers due to centimeters' fatigue, Kantun applies deviation to the equation. Shapes of intuition led by creative nutrition as soldiering fingers shiver. Full of enthusiasm, evacuated nonetheless.
Breaks provided, not when given, by redemptive feathers. Thus, if not human, then not human at all. Dipping your genitals into lava isn't honey.
- Lars Nordby
