Slettemark remains one of the most famous, beloved, and controversial artists in Scandinavia. Over a fifty-year period he made his presence felt as an active, influential force on the Nordic art scene. For Slettemark there was no boundary between art and life; as the idiosyncratic spelling of his first name suggests, art had been an integral component of his life ever since his baptism as a child. The exhibition spans Slettemark’s entire oeuvre, from his earliest drawings, made in Naustdal in the fjord country of western Norway, to the final works he produced in Stockholm.
