Alexander Tovborg: Sacrificial Love Beyond Devotion

Slideshow Advance

This monograph highlights the recent work of Copenhagen-based artist Alexander Tovborg. Documenting Tovborg’s work across painting, drawing, and sculpture from the last two years, this publication illuminates the artist’s deep knowledge of religious symbolism and archetypes—concepts that inform his multidisciplinary art, personal life, and ideology. His research into the origins and contemporary iterations of symbology, mysticism, and religious archetypes has yielded varied bodies of work that span subjects such as the hallucinogenic and erotic first meeting of Adam and Eve; the lost adolescence of Jesus Christ; and a wedding procession of paintings representing the marriage of heaven and hell, among others. Through newly commissioned texts, including a critical essay, poem, a short story, and an interview with the artist, this volume introduces readers to Tovborg’s rigorously researched, imaginative art. 

Edited by Mai Dengsøe with texts by Tom Morton, Nicoletta Isar, Anne Ulrikke Bak, and Maria de Blum.
