Sonja Ferlov Mancoba and Ernest Mancoba in The New York Times

"This show at Aicon includes 18 paintings and works on paper by Mancoba, handsomely installed against peach-colored walls, and paired with bronze sculptures by his wife, the Danish artist Sonja Ferlov Mancoba. Her bronzes of roughly finished metal, which can recall masks or totems, show the enduring influence of African sculpture on European modernism — and reaffirms that both husband and wife were working in a postwar Paris where a clean division of “African” and “European” aesthetics could not be made. The real urgency here, though, remains Ernest Mancoba’s abstractions. They ought to be in every serious modern art museum: not as a token of “African” modernism, but an exemplar of forms in motion." JASON FARAGO


Kristian Touborg on Daily Lazy

Kristian Touborg has been featured in conversation on Daily Lazy. Read the interview here:


Sonja Ferlov Mancoba and Ernest Mancoba at Aicon, New York

Sonja Ferlov Mancoba | Ernest Mancoba, is an important and timely exhibition that considers the creative impulses of two artists that were instrumental in founding the CoBrA avant-garde art movement. It will be the first major show in the United States of Sonja Ferlov Mancoba and the second of Ernest Mancoba (following the very successful first solo of the artist at Aicon Gallery in February, 2017). Sonja Ferlov Mancoba | Ernest Mancoba is the first exhibition of the two artists since their Centre Pompidou 2019 show (June 26 to September 29, 2019).

The exhibition juxtaposes a suite of canvases and drawings with a series of inspired sculptures tracing both artists’ heritage – Danish and South African respectively – and recording the profound influence they had on each other’s work. Aicon Art’s show is in generous partnership with Galerie Mikael Andersen, Copenhagen and the Ferlov Mancoba Estate.

"Through his art, Touborg collects motifs from his local environment to create complex works with a rough collage approach and a sensitive painterly voice. Such as Soulland, Touborg’s focus is on versatility, tactility and contrasts in life within the surfaces of fabrics."

Ernest Mancoba at Centre Pompidou

A grand solo exhibition of Ernest Mancoba's (1904-2002) work opens at Centre Pompidou this June. The exhibition is both thematic and chronological, inviting visitors to an initiatory experience. Mancoba’s relentless search for "the central figure" is omnipresent. The different parts of the exhibition radiate around it, designed as motifs in a unified dance where only one image seems to move, the reflection of the artist’s relentless quest for unity. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with Estate Ferlov Manoba.
