WILHELM MUNDT

BOYS AND GIRLS AND BLACK HOLES

In 1989, German artist Wilhelm Mundt completed his sculpture Stein 001. The work marks the start of a chronological series of abstract, lump-shaped sculptures that soon came to be titled trashstones. These trashstones has characterised Mundt’s artistry ever since and he has already completed more than 600 of them. The title Boys and Girls and Black Holes is an allusion to the expectations and pre-conceptions that may arise when one encounters a colour, a structure or a shape. While the black bronze surface absorbs almost every light, the aluminum ones are reflecting their surroundings. There will also be a selected range of photographic works presented, The Black Holes. They show various leftover shadows of lumps, each one showing the contour of a Trashstone. 

- Regardless of the muriad of possible associations, the aim is to create something that does not pretend to be anything other than it is, Mundt clarifies.

HELENA BLOMQVIST

Florentine

March 17 - April 23, 2016

With an infallible sense of hues and lighting, together with a meticulous craftsmanship, the scenography is made co-star next to the lead, Florentine Stein. There is a touch of melancholy inherent to Florentine, a suite of new works by Helena Blomqvist. The subdued palette that brings late 19:th century Scandinavian painting to mind enhances the sense of melancholy. We are guided by a loosely knitted narrative through the memories and recollections of the former ballerina. The past appears as vivid as the present. How certain can we be that what we are looking at is the actual recollections of Florentine? Would it be truer to describe what is in front of us as the tangled up truth, as it looks through the filters of time and imagination?

The resplendent melancholy visible in the eyes of Florentine turns to deflection in the wider perspective of our contemporary history. The cataclysmic occurrences that are noticed among the headlines in the stacks of yellowed newspapers could be read as references to Blomqvist's earlier body of work. With these shared experiences as backdrop, the personal history of Florentine is set in the foreground. Here we are confronted with more personal, yet common, existential matters, as ageing and loneliness.

Lars Nilsson, Ghosts, 2014

 

Lars Nilsson follows up the Curitiba International Biennal success with solo exhibition at Instituto Tomie Ohtake in São Paolo, Brazil.

As a direct result of his exhibition Ghosts at the Curitiba International Biennal, Lars Nilsson has been invited for a solo exhibition in São Polo, Brazil. The exhibition takes place at well-renowned Instituto Tomie Ohtake and opens on February 20th. Lars Nilsson, who was recently elected member of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, was one of the artists who got his part of the Curitiba International Biennal extended due to massive demand.

Ever since the opening in October 2015, the queues to Oscar Niemeyer Museum in Curitiba, where Lars Nilsson’s installation is shown together with work by other artists, have shown no signs of dwindling. The Curitiba International Biennal grows constantly and this edition was the largest to date. Due to the extensive crowd pressure the organization decided to extend the exhibition period and as a result of this curator Teixeira Coelho also has contributed to Ghosts being showed as a solo exhibition at Instituto Tomie Ohtake in São Paolo, opening on February 20th.
