LOUISIANA MUSEUM OF MODERN ART

Mamma Andersson: Humdrum Days

Edited by Lærke Rydal Jørgensen and Marie Laurberg. Foreword by Poul Erik Tøjner and Marie Laurberg. Text by Barry Schwabsky, Karl Ove Knausgård, Magnus Florin. Conversation between Mamma Andersson and Marie Laurberg.

Mamma Andersson: Humdrum Days

Works from the past two decades and a new series from the Swedish master of the oneiric and the unsettling

Mamma Andersson (born 1962) ranks as one of the most important painters of her generation. The Swedish artist is an eminent interpreter of the unique language of painting. With a sharp sense of mood, color and materiality, she has developed a personal take on the classical genres of painting: still lifes, interiors and landscapes are at the crux of her work. Her signature aesthetic is the result of repeated applications and overpainting. Oil on canvas is covered in spray paint, paint is dragged in thin bands across the surface, producing a material fullness and variety.

This catalog accompanies the Louisiana’s exhibition Mamma Andersson: Humdrum Days, and contains contributions from the author Karl Ove Knausgård, the playwright Magnus Florin and the art writer and poet Barry Schwabsky, in addition to a conversation between Mamma Andersson and the exhibition’s curator, Marie Laurberg.

Albert Mobilio

Andersson invites her viewers to think about their own relationships to the everyday—its unnoticed qualities and capacity for multifarious revelations. Her paintings reveal and attach the extra to the ordinary.
