The exibition Derek Jarman – Black Paintings is between 25th January and 16th March 2014 on show at Trondheim Art Museum.
The Black Paintings are paintings made by Jarman at his house “Prospect Cottage” near the beach in Dungeness, Kent. They are produced by the material and objects found on the beach and were all made on canvas and gold ground. The paintings express his despair and his struggle agains the aids infection eating his body from inside, but also carry reflections on religion and human existence, and often reveal a poetic sense of humour.
