Catherine Opies will showcase Walls, Windows and Blood to the public for the first time in Scandinavia.
The exhibition will feature a carefully curated selection of pieces from the artist’s three most recent series: Blood Grids, Walls, and Windows. These exceptional collections were conceived and captured during Opie’s 2021 artist residency at the American Academy in Rome. With this body of work, Opie applies a distinctly American voice, both artistically and politically, to some of the deepest entrenched concepts of a powerful entity like the Catholic Church.
Catherine Opie (b. 1961, Sandusky, Ohio) is considered one of the leading photographers of her generation and has over the past twenty years created a boldly original and complex body of photographic work that explores notions of communal, sexual, and cultural identity. Walls, Windows, and Blood arrives a decade after Opie's last installation at Peder Lund. The exhibition is a testament to her evolving artistic journey and represents her third showcase at the gallery. We are eagerly anticipating the opportunity to reintroduce the work of this incomparable artist to the Norwegian public once more.
