Med denna retrospektiva utställning sluts cirkeln och sätter på sätt och vis punkt där allt en gång i tiden började. Allerts förmåga att gestalta individer som förenar det andliga med det jordiska är helt unik.
Some of the most interesting artists around 1970 were at Rörstrand. Rörstrand what a magnet the artists were drawn to. Carl Harry Stålhane attracted Henrik Allert to Rörstrand after his art studies in Gothenburg where Stålhane had been his teacher. Allert was associated with Rörstrand as a freelancer during the years 1969–1972.
This was the beginning of his career as an artist. It gained extra momentum in connection with the exhibition at Galleri Petra in Stockholm in 1971 when one of the works was purchased by the National Museum. Allert is now 85 years old, world famous but still very well rooted in Säter’s crowd in Billingen.
Let yourself be enchanted and fascinated by sculptures and other works.
