Cold Current - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Norway
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Guja Mabellini, Lars Nordby, Grete Marstein
One hundred and forty works united by a synthetic and contemporary view of reality and the human condition. Works that combine both a passion for the country and an integral and positive detachment from it.
In the Imago Mundi collection dedicated to one of the most beautiful countries of Northern Europe, the Norwegian artists reflect on how to progress whilst simultaneously staying true to tradition and the characteristics that make them unique. Illustrating the inevitable contamination and exchanges that create an idea of movement, a current that - like the ocean - is able to carry us away and then bring us back changed, infected with new ideas, inspirations and feelings.
Cold Current. Contemporary Artists from Norway is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10x12 cm format.
