19 February - 20 March 2021


OSL contemporary and i8 Gallery are pleased to announce a pure land, a solo exhibition by Callum Innes. The show comprises a group of fifty watercolours constituting a single, major work by the artist. The exhibition will be collaboratively presented by OSL and i8. The exhibition opens on February 19 at OSL contemporary and will be on view until March 20 in Oslo; it subsequently travels to i8 Gallery where it will be on view from April 8 to May 22, 2021, in Reykjavík.


Innes made these fifty watercolours in his Oslo studio, where he has been working since early 2020, and this is the second-ever group to be designated as a single work.


A publication, also titled “a pure land,” will be published in February in conjunction with the exhibitions. The book includes reproductions of the fifty watercolours, and features a new poem by Thomas A. Clark, which was written in response to Innes’s works.
