[2019. Exhibitions]

Izumi Miyazaki | Alter ego | Galleri VasliSouza

As an only child growing up in Japan, Miyazaki often let her imagination roam free. What began as simple snapshots of herself, have in time become refined pieces of art, carefully planned down to every last detail. With her signature bob haircut, she pops up everywhere in her photos; floating, split in half, and multiplied in settings that should all look familiar, but that have been transfigured by her surrealistic, grotesque and ironically humorous outlook. In addition to herself, Japanese food often occurs in her work, like when she is high kicking on top of a rice ball, or when tomato juice is running out of her seemingly decapitated head. Her inspiration comes mostly from her own thoughts, but also from the cinema, her friends and things she finds amusing online. Miyazaki’s focus on the self is at the same time a satirical take on her own selfie obsessed SNS generation as well as an evolution of the longstanding photographic genre of self-portraiture.

Christel Lundberg | Subtopia | Galleri Rostrum

Dreamtree, Christel Lundberg, 2019

I have missed A term for a condition between utopia and dystopia. 

Garbage dumps are formed into the mountains of the seagulls, where the collector finds his things.

From a fragment, the concept of subtopi is formed.
In the depth of the marl pit, dreams come together with ontology, the whole of fragments, the eternity of perishables.

Subtopia is the link between utopia and dystopia.

Braids in human destruction to dreams of existence.

In the subtopic landscape there is the blind road.

The blindness of blindness makes us irrepressible to meanings that have hardened to an unfairness.

I invoke the hidden behind the impatience.

In hidden areas, the search for subtopi.

Mankind provides “Mother Earth rights” (Parliament in Bolivia, Ley de Derechos de la Madre Tierra).

In film, photography and drawings I take the road to a subtopic landscape.

MÅNS HOLST–EKSTRÖM | Lunghezza | Digitaliseum

Måns Holst-Ekström was born in 1963. Since 1994 he lives and works in Malmö as a writer, art historian and photographer. He was educated at the universities of Lund and Oslo and has spent extended research stays in Rome and Kyoto, focussing on architecture. 2001-2006 he was associate professor in fine art at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm and is teaching at Lund University since 2008.

He has mainly worked on the relationships between text, body, sensory experience and visualities. Photography has long been one of his tools. This can be seen in the exhibition Lunghezza that approaches subjects like history, the limits of narration and spatial self-representation. The photos were taken in the medieval castle of Lunghezza outside Rome, but the interiors that one sees were destroyed some twenty years ago when the castle lord Malcolm Munthe, son of the famous Swedish writer and physician Axel Munthe, died.

Italy is a recurring theme with Måns Holst-Ekström. 2009 he presented the artistic research project Italomemes – Conceptions About Italy, together with visual artist Daniel Hoflund, at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm. In 2010, his novel “…som Italien” was published. His latest book, Ekfraser i en förbannad tid – tankar kring städer, arkitektur, trädgårdar, rum, formgivning och konst, came out in 2019.
