A group show based on the encounter between text and image.
Text is something that has long been present in the history of visual art, in many forms and artistic techniques. The exhibition chooses to focus on works that by their artistic method open up a fruitful uncertainty or ambiguity, works that force us to read them simultaneously through different languages or with a double gaze. The exhibition will include works by artists working in different directions and artistic practices and will follow some different threads through this vast field.
Participating artists: Karl Holmqvist, Linnea Lindberg, My Lindh, Lotta Lotass, Duane Michals, Lina Nordenström, Carl-Erik Ström, Lisa Tan och Peter Thörneby

The international group show A Posthumous Journey into the Future explores fiction and modes of speculative writing and storytelling in contemporary art as a method to create emotional and intellectual understanding of the cultural and planetarian crisis we are in, due to climate change.
What can we learn from a romantic and subjective experience of relating to the world, by sensing and imagining? Can a time-leap, neglecting the industrialization produce a framework for alternative ways of living and thoughts? The “Posthumous Journey” can also be understood as a questioning of the anthropocentric point of view, where acknowledging agency in nature also gives space for new imaginaries, opposed to colonial and other hegemonic structures.
Participating artists: Imani Jacqueline Brown, Alma Heikkilä, Johannes Heldén, My Lindh, Mónica de Miranda, Håkan Jonson, Signe Johannessen and Eglė Budvytytė.

Inauguration of the piece Time Circuit for Radiotorget in Gothenburg.
The work consists of two heated bronze seat marks set into the staircase facing Radiotorget, and a sculpture with solar cells that heats the seat marks. The seat marks were left by two residents of Radiotorget: a 95-year-old who has lived there since it was built in the 1950s, and a 10-year-old child who had just moved into one of the houses built on the square when the artwork was created. If you sit on a mark, you can be warmed by it and become part of a circuit through time and space, through the energy of the sun as well as those who left their mark.

Inauguration of the public commission Growing futures for Tallbacken’s school in Gävle.
The work came about through a collaboration between My Lindh and fourth and fifth graders in Tallbacken’s school. The work consists of annual rings in bronze that spread out over the school’s entrance floor. The annual rings contain sentences with the children’s thoughts about time and the future. In the middle of the floor is a bronze plate, made after the largest pine that grew on the site before the new school was built. When My counted the annual rings, she concluded that the tree must have been growing on the site since around 1830. When the children now enter their new school building, they are literally stepping into their history, their present and their future.
