Performance and Paintings

To create many of his paintings, Morten Viskum uses the severed hand of a cadaver as a brush and animal blood mixed with acrylic paint as his colour. The action that gives origin to the work is a vital part of the work itself, and has on a number of occasions been part of public performance.

During exhibitions, the hand in question lies in a metal box and the public can choose whether to see it or not.
Below you can see selected artworks by Morten Viskum. This website is being continually expanded, and many more works by Viskum will be added soon.
