Presenting works by Bjørn Bjarre and Gustav Vigeland, this exhibition is made in connection with the Norwegian Drawing Association’s Drawing biennial. Both artists are presented here with drawings and sketches related to ideas for sculpture. The exhibition displays both new and former drawings by Bjarre, including projects such as Abstract Feeling (1996 - 2008) and Solaris (2010 -). Bjarre started making comics in 1986, before he eventually developed a series of sculptures in the anti-monumental material plasticine. The animated, primitive and surreal characterizes his work. The exhibition is a retrospective showing Bjarre's production of sketches from 1986 till today.

The Vigeland museum's collection comprises 12,000 drawings by Vigeland that probably were not meant for the public eye. For the biennial, curator Elise Storsveen has selected drawings by Vigeland that demonstrates a width in both motif and style - from the dynamic erotic sketches to the more schematic blueprints for the wrought iron gates in the Vigeland Park.
