Det börjar med ett guldregn – Therese Parner, 25 Aug–24 Sep
You need a body to shape a body, presence. The vital machinery that brings forth the soul’s nervous being is the body. Here, the two are able to rest like the objects they are, born from another mother in their materiality. Beyond care, peaceful just peaceful. Things to look at in a new light, a golden rain.
The Stockholm-based artist Therese Parner’s exhibition Det börjar med ett guldregn (It begins with a golden rain), incorporates stoneware sculptures, whose common factor is the process of creating the work and the body as a physical form, but also on a more symbolic level. The body’s wordless communication in gestures and actions. The sculptures have an inherent search for the body as a more ephemeral shape that slips through our fingers.
Opening: Friday, 25 August at 6 pm–9 pm.
Evening opening hours during GIBCA Extended’s opening on Wednesday, 6 September at 6 pm–8 pm.
Något fint måste hända II – Meira Ahmemulic, 29 Sep–29 Oct
Meira Ahmemulic’s film is based on the dream of an alternative life. In this case, the dream of America and Sweden, and the fact that Sweden today has become a country that many feel forced to leave. The situation in the Balkans has once more prompted people to leave their homes and seek a better life in Sweden, but more especially in America, which many see as the country where anyone can make it. The film also deals with the highly limited opportunities for people with a migrant background to choose an artistic profession in two entirely different social systems—Sweden and the USA.
Opening: Friday, 29 September at 6 pm–9 pm.
