About

Fredrik Raddum is educated at the The National Academy of Art in Oslo. He works with sculpture, installation, photo and performance related journeys. He has exhibited at various spaces since 2001. Raddum popularizes serious themes and embodies them in tragicomic animal and human figures resembling cartoon characters. Clichés and icons are twisted and turned in to new settings. Without obvious display of critical attitude, Raddum’s sculptures drop subtle hints encouraging the viewer to think beyond the initial encounter.

Raddum has exhibited at Aaros Museum of Modern Art (Denmark), National Gallery of Art (Denmark), Kistefos Museum (Norway), Pori Art Museum (Finland) and Museum of Installation (UK) amongst many others. His works are represented in many public collections such as The Norwegian National Gallery, National Gallery of Art (Denmark) Norwegian Art Council, Vestas, Aker-Solutions, Norvestor Equity, Telenor and Statoil.

Represented at Gallery Brandstrup Oslo and Hans Alf Gallery Copenhagen.
