LEONARD COHEN – ARTWORKS - GALLERY POULSEN I RUNGSTED HAVN

Rungsted Havn får en verdensberømthed på besøg når den lokale Rungsted borger og gallerist Morten Poulsen inviterer til en eksklusiv visning af sangeren Leonard Cohens kunst. Visningen er for at markere Gallery Poulsens 10 års jubilæum.

Den canadiske sanger har i de sidste 40 år tegnet og malet i al stilhed og han har selv et ydmygt forhold til sine værker:
”Hvis der ikke var nogen malerier i verden, ville mine være meget vigtige. Det samme med mine sange. Men nu da det ikke er tilfældet, så lad os skynde os at komme bagerst i køen,” udtaler han.

Ydmygheden skinner også igennem priserne, som Cohen insisterer på at holde nede så alle hans fans har mulighed for at erhverve sig et værk.

Morten Poulsen har tidligere i samarbejde med Cohens søn Adam Cohen vist de sjældne kunstværker. Udstillingen i Rungsted Havn tilføjer motiver og kompositioner der ikke tidligere har været vist. Alle motiverne er relateret direkte til Leonard Cohen som musiker og person - de er komponeret af selvportrætter, musikinstrumenter, kvinder og citater om Cohens liv som musiker. Af samme grund er billedkunstneren Leonard Cohen også meget svær at skille ad fra musikeren.
De er skabt af den samme tilgang til livet der er fuld af paradokser. De er ærlige, sørgelige, poetiske, ironiske, kække og alvorlige. Og når han taler om sine billeder, lyder det som en af hans sange.

Han siger selv om sit samarbejde med Morten Poulsen: ”Sommetider når jeg ser en kvinde i et magasin, ydmyget af de glitrende trykfarver, forsøger jeg at etablere hende i lykkeligere omstændigheder. Det kan også være en mand. Eller levende personer der sidder foran mig. Jeg holder også meget af alle tingene på mit bord. Lysestagerne og skålene. Og fra et spejl på mit skrivebord har jeg siddet i de tidlige morgentimer og tegnet hundredvis af selvportrætter. Kuratoren har kaldt udstillingen for Leonard Cohen Artworks. Jeg kalder selv mine værker for Acceptable Dekorationer. ”

IF THERE WERE NO PAINTINGS

If there were no paintings in the world, Mine would be very important.
Same with my songs.
Since this is not the case, let us make haste to get in line,
Well towards the back.
Sometimes I would see a woman in a magazine Humiliated in the technicolour glare.
I would try to establish her
In happier circumstances.
Sometimes a man.
Sometimes living persons sat for me.
May I say to them again:
Thank you for coming to my room.
I also loved the objects on the table
Such as candlesticks and bowls.
From a mirror on my desk
In the very early morning
I copied down
Hundreds of self-portraits.
The Curator has called this exhibition
Leonard Cohen Artworks
I call my work
Acceptable Decorations.
- Leonard Cohen
