About the Exhibition

Dedicated to the power of storytelling, Oda Tungodden’s latest body of work, Mist Memories, is painted like the pages of a book. Each piece invites the viewer to share its world for a moment- a concoction of memories and expectations, fact and fiction. Here, the imaginary meets the real as canvases are transformed from expectant white shapes into paintings, allowing Tungodden to seek the infinite amount of possibilities inherent in each work- echoing that which every new day offers us. Cloaked in a dreamlike quality, familiar scenes in the paintings cast a shadow of doubt as Tungodden explores and expresses the mystery of living.

Oda Tungodden is an artist based between Cape Town, South Africa and Bergen, Norway. Inspired by her own experiences, Oda’s artworks explore identity and belonging in an ever-globalized society. In her art, everyday moments morph into something ambiguous as layers of lush colours dilute and erase parts of their surrounding spaces. Ultimately, Oda creates images that occupy a space somewhere between reality, perception and imagination.
