HODGEPODGE LODGE

  • Exhibition
19 February 2005 to 19 March 2005

The exhibition Hodgepodge Lodge by Adrian Norvid presents a drawing work as rigorous as it is whimsical. An accumulation of drawings of different sizes cover the walls of the two gallery rooms. Together, the works combines some of the characteristic motifs of popular culture of the 60s and 70s with others that recall the aesthetic standards that prevailed between the 17th and the 19th century. Despite an overflow effect, due to the installation’s disproportion and the heterogeneity of the iconography, the images create a world in itself, both funny and tragic, like Count Buggerall, a character born out of the artist’s imagination, who appears here and there looking intrigued, curious, circumspect.
