Fiestas, Dance, Music - Gardar Eide Einarsson at Maureen Paley

“He likes the fiestas. He likes the music. He likes to dance.” Maureen Paley presents the second solo exhibition by Norwegian artist Gardar Eide Einarsson at the gallery in Bethnal Green.

Gardar Eide Einarsson’s work incorporates acts of appropriation and the re-contextualization of imagery and information. He adopts and endows elements of cultural ephemera with a political charge, attempting to transform various materials into signifiers of dissent. His sources range from book cover graphics, mail-order catalogues, police instruction manuals, everyday objects and institutional architecture.

The new exhibition will feature a sculptural installation made from oil drums and sand bags - representing the favelas and the world of slum out of which they were taken - as well as a series of new paintings.

Gardar Eide Einarsson currently lives and works in Tokyo. He received his education from Bergen, Frankfurt and New York.

Maureen Paley was one of the first to present contemporary art in London’s East End and has been a pioneer of the current scene promoting and showing art from the USA and continental Europe as well as launching new talent from the UK.
