Martin Skauen – Slideshow Johnny
11.10 – 10.11.12

OSL contemporary is proud to present the exhibition Slideshow Johnny, with new works by Martin Skauen. The signature work was shown at Statements, Art Basel 2012, and consists of a six-act video-installation featuring Skauen’s alter ego, Slideshow Johnny. The exhibition will also present the video My First Poem, as well as selected drawings.

OSL contemporary was established in May 2011, in a previous garage at Oslo’s West end. The gallery aims at promoting contemporary Norwegian artists in an international field as well as grounding their foothold in a national context. The exhibition program has a primary focus on contemporary art with a conceptual focus at the core of the production. The gallery represents emerging, mid-career and established artists, several of which have participated in internationally renowned exhibitions, such as Documenta; Liste; The Venice Biennale; The Istanbul Biennial; The Sao PauloBiennial; The Lyon Biennial; and Momentum – the Nordic Art Festival.
