Sprunget ur lera" with Henrik Allert at Rörstrand Museum

This will probably be Henrik Allert’s last exhibition. The first took place 51 years ago at Galleri Petra in 1971. Allert is now 85 years old, world famous but characterized by his closeness to the earth, animals, everyday life and the changes of the seasons. This retrospective exhibition at Rörstrand Museum closes the the circle and we are, in many respects, brought back to where everything once began.

Some of the most interesting artists around 1970 were on Rörstrand and the porcelain factory was a magnet to which the artists were drawn. Carl Harry Stålhane persuaded Henrik Allert to come to Rörstrand after he had finished his studies at the School of Design and Crafts in Gothenburg, where Stålhane was his tutor. Allert worked as a freelancer at Rörstrand from 1969–1972. This marked the beginning of his career as an artist,

Henrik Allert’s ability to portray individuals who unite the spiritual with the earthly is completely unique. In Allert’s art, a feeling is created that mysticism is a perfectly natural part of everyday life. The simple and natural motifs fascinate and make people reflect and listen to their feelings.

  • It has been fantastic to follow Henrik’s enthusiasm and happiness when it was decided that Rörstrand Museum wanted to show a selection of his rich production,” says exhibition producer Anette Stillner. She is very grateful to have seen this drive and the determination that has existed as Henrik Allert himself has been very involved in the whole process; how and what would be displayed.
  • In this work, I also cannot help but reflect on the importance of projects and meetings that give life meaning, she adds. Henrik Allert is confident in his core values and once told me that his mother said: “You do what you want, you’ve always done that”.

The exhibition, which had its opening on November 5, has received a very positive response and attracts guests from long distances to the museum. “Sprunget ur lera” runs until February 5.

Art lecture and meeting with the artist

On January 14 at 13, Rörstrand Museum invites you to a lecture where the art critic and writer Bo Borg tells the story based on the writings and the time he followed Henrik Allert during his very productive life as an artist. The audience is invited to a fruitful conversation based on reflections and people’s encounters with art. There will also be an opportunity to meet the artist himself among the sculptures in the exhibition.
