For the season 2013, Kistefos-Museet showed a retrospective exhibition of the internationally renowned Norwegian contemporary artist Fredrik Raddum. The exhibition Fall Out... was shown in the Art Hall's 1st and 2nd floor.
Fredrik Raddum is known for his humorous and socially critical sculptures, often painted in the bright colors of Pop Art. In his works, he questions identity and the relationship between nature and culture. He works primarily with sculpture and installations, always figurative, and revolves around the issues of human being, animal and the Norwegian nature. This 2013 exhibition was a retrospective view of the artist's work over the last 10 years, and in several new works, the focus is on a worldwide social problem, namely the modern human resource consumption. "Humanity has started to use up itself and the world."
Fredrik Raddum was born in 1973 and lives and works in Oslo. He graduated from the Art Academy in Oslo in 2001, and has since exhibited actively around the world. He is represented with works at the National Museum and in several foreign art museums and private collections. Moreover, he has done great decorations in public places, including the huge foot, "One Foot in the Grave", which stands in the parking basement atTjuvholmen.
