Troels Carlsen

The Remains of Disappearance

There is no better artist than Troels Carlsen to show how the human body remains animalistic. He manages to reveal the beauty of the human body with wonderful details of muscles, sinews or bones. At the end of the ligaments you might find an animal form that joins the human body. A reoccurring theme in Carlsen’s practice, that often revolves around humanity, life and death, and the magic that might occur in between.

For his solo exhibition “The Remains of Disappearance” in Italy, consisting of 20 new works on original 18th and 19th century drawings created for the occasion, Carlsen combines the old master drawing with his contemporary point of view, sometimes with a humoristic touch. The exhibition takes place at the Fondazione Aldega, based in the beautiful Palazzo Croce di Borgo in Amelia in the Italian region Umbria.


June 12th – July 30th.
