Welcome to the opening of Torsion

We're excited to welcome you to the opening of Sascha Braunig: Torsion, opening on Thursday, May 26th at 18:00!

Kunsthall Stavanger is proud to present the first institutional solo-exhibition by Canadian artist Sascha Braunig. Braunig’s illusory and vibrant paintings and sculptures defy simplistic classification. At once vividly real and lusciously dreamlike, they blur the line between figure and abstraction.

Titled Torsion, the exhibition at Kunsthall Stavanger brings together a selection of the artist’s newer paintings and sculptures for the first time in Norway. In all Braunig’s works, the body-oriented imagery and hyper-realistic modeling lead the audience to question the boundaries between objecthood and subjecthood, the imagination and reality.  

Read more about the upcoming exhibition on our exhibition page.

We look forward to seeing you at the opening!
