Through his work, Öyvind Fahlström offers a singular representation of the world. Fahlström was a nomadic artist who travelled to marginalised and peripheral areas in many countries, and created works – sometimes maps, islands and continents, or ‘variable paintings' – which pushed the language of comics to the limit. His work encourages an ethical reading of the representation of the planet, greater social commitment and the active involvement of the spectator.

While there are ideas about psychological and emotional developmental processes held within the sculptures I make, the things themselves are actual physical explorations into thinking, feeling, communicating and relating.
