b. 1977, Sweden
Oskar Korsár (b.1977, Umeå, Sweden), studied Graphic Design and Illustration at the Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm. In a modernist sense, the surfaces of Oskar’s drawn and sculpted subjects writhe with restless narratives that invite association. Here, the fractured line, the remnant, and trace of a pencil speak with the same timber as the sensibility held by a signifying form. Oblique and carnivalesque, Oskar’s work can be described as a catalogue of proposals; that which is put forward is left to us viewers to decipher. Select exhibitions include: I Like Feminism and Feminism Likes me, Art Gallery of the College of Staten Island, New York (2021); I Dialogue, Kinch, Belmacz ,London (2021); I’m The Producer, Belmacz ,London (2020); Monopol Stockholm, Spritmuseum, Sweden (2019); Cloud People, Wandering Stars, with Lauren Coullard, Das Blaue Pferde, Germany (2019); Machine Gun Etiquette, Belmacz, London (2018); mid-career retrospective, Fullersta Gård, Stockholm, Sverige (2017); Unidentified Archaeological Findings, Borås Konsthall, Borås, Jönköpings Konsthall, Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde, Stockholm (2016); Konst i ån, Nortällje Konsthall, Norrtälje, Sweden (2016); No Wind Can Blow Us Down, Yossi Milo Gallery, New York (2007).
