For many years, Kjersti Wexelsen Goksøyr has worked within a classic modernistic tradition. She is known for her stylised and carefully expressive human figures and heads of stone. In the exhibition at the Vigeland museum, she surprises us by integrating her monumental and mildly feminine sculptures with an intense involvement in current politics. The material is – literally speaking – cut from the news coverage in recent years on wars, acts of terror and conflicts throughout the world. The selection and combination of these photos of the press are a result of a critical perspective on religion. The same applies for the selection of central quotes, which she has gathered from the four world religions and carved into symbolic stone monuments. Thus she underscores the significance and presence of religion today, both in Western and Eastern cultures, with a special emphasis on power and obediance in the different religious creeds. More than anything, she raises questions, and she offers no ready answers.
