Join us for the opening of our two new exhibitions at House of Sweden!
Linda Lasson - Black Thread, Images from Northern Sweden
This exhibition addressing the situation of the Sami, Sweden´s indigenous people. Lasson´s work tells the stories of an exploited Northland and a displaced indigenous population, through art works that are archetypal contemporary poetry expressed in embroidery. The threads resemble drawings, and the graphic feel, mixed with the textile structure, gives a sculptural aesthetic. Natural-looking works pair with political messages, the art asks us the big and important question which need to be answered in the western world: is it us or the nature that needs protection from our way of living?
David Molander - Invincible Cities
If home is a place where we ought to feel safe - how is this feeling visualized in our collective home - the city? This question generates multiple echoes in this exhibition. Molander´s images are scenes where small and large conflicts play out among different interests and processes. While we can choose to care about or ignore them, all of them play an important role in shaping the invincible cities that we call home.
These exhibitions will be displayed at House of Sweden between June 10 - September 3
Open Saturdays & Sundays 12 – 5 pm
