until 12.03. | #3321ARTatBerlin | Galerie Nordenhake Berlin currently shows the exhibition 2100 by the artist Paul Fägerskiöld.

The stars, like the sun and the moon, have long been considered fixed Archimedean points from which to orientate ourselves, probably since the very beginning of humanity. They appear as unchangeable objects from which to calculate distances and time and seem to give meaning to the world. Astronomical calculations of the night sky are the point of departure for Paul Fägerskiöld’s series of paintings “Starry Night”. The works in the exhibition deal with the year 2100, and Fägerskiöld has used recent software of the same name to generate views of how the night sky will appear as observed from selected locations on the planet in exactly 78 years’ time.
A large oil painting with concave horizons shows a view of the night sky as seen from Berlin in the year 2100. Another the sky over Venice, where giants of art history such as Tintoretto, Titian, or Canaletto created their own depictions of the same sky. The almost indigo painting “Mount Everest. View south. January 1 2100” shows a view over some of the world’s largest glaciers feeding the numerous rivers of the densely populated Indo-Gangetic plains. Other views beyond our possible experience are seen from Minsk, the Maldives, Murmansk and from the top of a pyramid in Tikal, Guatemala.

Paul Fägerskiöld was born in Stockholm in 1982 where he currently lives and works. In 2013 Moderna Museet, Malmö presented a solo exhibition of Fägerskiöld’s work in connection with the Fredrik Roos Art Grant. Last year a comprehensive solo exhibition “Blue Marble” was on view at Kunstmuseum Thun. In addition, he has had solo exhibitons at Borås Konstmuseum, Borås (2019), Jönköping County Museum and Prince Eugen’s Waldermarsudde, Stockholm (both 2018). He has shown in group exhibitions at Bonniers Konsthall (2020 and 2016), me Collectors Room Berlin / Olbricht Foundation, Berlin (2017) and Weserburg, Museum of Modern Art, Bremen, Sven-Harrys Konstmuseum, Stockholm (both 2016) and Frédéric de Goldschmidt Collection, Brussels (2015).
