We're extremely chuffed to see one of our favourite art critics saying good things about our Nordic artists. In last weekend's Sunday Times Waldemar Januszczak cast his eye over the Liverpool Biennial giving a nod to our North Atlantic Pavilion and had this to say about Jessie Kleemann:
I had never previously heard of Makhacheva or Kleemann. These are not your typical biennale artists, whose names are embossed on busy Airmiles reward cards and who are sure to pop up soon at the Serpentine Gallery. These are international discoveries from unfamiliar places, true international artists whose work feels tangibly of its place, who take some searching out and who do not yet speak the ubiquitous art Esperanto that makes so many contributions to so many biennales feel so interchangeable.
Later this week we'll be publishing the video of Jessie's performance that accompanies her installation.
