Back in Paris after a year in Italy, the French artist pursues his interest for language and polymorphic objects, in a thorough and sharp research on the irrational. He presents a body of new sculptures in which plaster, aluminium, wood, metal, leather or textile are combined with everyday objects. Frozen in their new shape, these objects lose their original function entering a metamorphosis. The object-sculpture becomes tense, resists categorisations and opens up to an imaginary dimension, where ghostly presences materialise eluding definitions.

In the labyrinthine walk across the space, plaster masks and faces appear, intertwined ceramic tongues talk to one another, fragments of texts poured into plaster balls are suspended at eye level. The exhibition unfolds then almost as a declaration of love to existence and to the body beyond the tangible.

Torbjørn Rødland's exhibition Fifth Honeymoon is a tightly composed exhibition, unfolding across the rooms of Bonniers Konsthall. With the contractual commitment of wedlock and the emotional trip of the honeymoon as metaphorical frameworks, the works tackle themes of religion, spirituality, eroticism and the spark that forms new human relations.
