Seen in the flowing water and heard in the whispering wind…

The work of Helena Wikström seeks to go underground - below the surface. She digs dens, creates tunnels and descends below the earth's crust and the surface of the water in search of a space of gravity, a space defined by the attraction of our bodies to the ground. Using gravity as a compass, she draws a vertical map of the seabed which we cannot see. It feels as if the movement, up and down, rethinks a traditional world view, how we have learned to read the world, time, as horizontal. We also find a curiosity about who populates these places, be they real beings or mythological figures. At Digitaliseum, Helena shows film, photo, sound art and papier-mâché sculptures.


Helena Wikström (b. 1964 in Tingsryd, Sweden) lives and works in Holmsund/Umeå. She mainly works with different types of installations containing film, photography, sound art and sculpture, often in collaboration with other artists, musicians and filmmakers. In addition to being involved in the artist-run gallery Verkligheten in Umeå, she works part-time as a curator for Vita kuben, Norrlandsoperan. Her work has been shown at Tromsö film festival, Bildmuseet, LCCA, Riga, National gallery, Prague, SVT and a large number of exhibitions, festivals, projects, nationally and internationally. Represented in several municipalities and county councils, the Modern Museum, Stockholm and the public art agency in Sweden. As a designer, Helena have designed a large amount of catalogues, books and posters.

ANN ROSÉN (SE) Dilate & JON NICKLAS LUNDBERG (SE) Temporality is an illusion


Exhibition period: 23 March - 18 May 2024


Opening on Saturday 23 March at 13:00 - 17:00
DJ Zuckerseit (SE) plays during the opening


Thursday 18/4 at 18:00 - 21:00 • Performance with ANN ROSÉN (SE) & JON NICKLAS LUNDBERG (SE)


Ann Rosén (b. 1956 in Hörnefors) is the composer, musician and visual artist who began her career in the visual arts in the 1980s. She studied at Konstfack in Stockholm where she graduated with an M.F.A. in 1988. Since the 1990s, the artistic focus has been on music and sound art. The works have been performed at, among others, the Royal Opera House, the Modern Museum in Stockholm and the South Bank in London. Rosén has played in clubs in Berlin and London, participated in everything from underwater concerts to international festivals such as BIFEM in Australia and HCMF// in Great Britain. Rosén's art revolves around the exploration of interpersonal communication, how we can understand ourselves in relation to the outside world and the barriers that can arise between us. Her art can be described as the consequence of an action. Soundscapes and music emerge when graphite fuses with paper.


With her self-developed instrument and toolGraphite Barrier, where pen, paper and electronics are combined into an instrument with which Ann Rosén generates, performs and composes drawings and music.Dilate is an ongoing process that started in 2021 with a series of live-streamed concerts, Drawing Sessions, that resulted in the vinyl Dilate. When Ann Rosén works with images the sound controls the result, at each Drawing Session sounds and images are generated. Now she has expanded her palette with color, drawings have been processed and become paintings. The exhibition also shows the video-score Between, composed for the Polish ensemble Kwartludium.
During the exhibition period, Ann Rosén will generate and perform Dilate 2.0
The book Recycling the Work Process, which was released in 2023 and summarizes Ann Rosén's artistic process in the form of a graphic score, can also be viewed in the exhibition.


Jon Nicklas Lundberg (b. 1976 in Lund) is a multidisciplinary artist based in Malmö. His practice revolves around sound, but experimentally branches out into other media where he explores their potential for expression through sonic interweaving. He is interested in participatory transformative processes where definitions have to be re-evaluated, thereby bringing into focus urgent social and political issues. Jon Nicklas Lundberg has exhibited and performed his art nationally and internationally.

"Temporality is an Illusion" offers different perspectives on how we relate (or don't relate) to movement in space, commonly referred to as time. The audience is invited to take part in a participatory sound work and watch video documentation of the installation "Full Throttle!", a critique of environmental exploitation in space.

Jon Nicklas Lundberg has studied art and music-related subjects at Konstfack and Lund University. He has participated in international residencies and art projects, including Trans-Media-Akademie Hellerau e.V. (Dresden, Germany), Crawford College of Art & Design (Cork, Ireland) and Elektronmusikstudion "EMS" (Stockholm, Sweden). Parallel to this, he has received long-term residency support from the city of Lund for his exploratory project "Sound Sculpture lab". Currently, he is involved in the lecture and workshop series "1, 2, 3, Playtime", organized by Inter Arts Center (Malmö) and Region Skåne, a project where a selected group of artists explores the interaction between art, games and technology.


AUTUMN 2023


INGRID TORVUND (NO) & JONAS MAILAND (NO) Under earth


Exhibition period 25 November 2023 - 16 March 2024


Ingrid Torvund (b. 1985) and Jonas Mailand (b.1985) works primarily in film and sculpture.


With their interest in storytelling and passion for visual narratives, they create audiovisual experiences that engage audiences and provoke thoughtful contemplation.


By dissecting odd and remarkable events from their own lives they explore the intersection of nature and culture, and in this process they construct a personal mythology, rooted in nature and the landscape of Telemark, Norway. Their visual expression balance between the recognizable, intimate, magical and otherworldy.


Since 2009 they have mainly worked with film and produced the film trilogy "Under earth» which consists of: "Magic blood machine" (2012), "When I go out I bleed magic" (2015) and "I found you under earth, under blood" (2019).

Currently they are developing the film series " Seeper Weeper Sleeper” which will span many episodes. Rooted in nature, «Seeper Weeper Sleeper» is a tale of sleep, life and death.

The idea of falling asleep is central to the episodes. We trust that it is safe to fall asleep, and close our eyes. A bed is a budding castle and the duvet is a shield. In the series, we meet beings who hunt while others sleep, one character floats drowsingly between the trees and others sleep into death. Bedposts stand guard as the characters cry themselves to sleep, search for sleep inducing substances and wear themselves out. Wondrous mysteries and rituals unfold through various characters and scenes, performed by Torvund and enhanced by her handmade costumes,

scenery and lo-fi special effects.


Digitaliseum will exhibit the Under earth trilogy and two episodes of Seeper weeper sleeper. The exhibition also includes a documentary exploring the process of making the Under earth trilogy.

In the exhibition "Excelsior Preteritum," siblings Ossian Theselius and Isabel Theselius have woven together a dreamlike installation where witches and fairy tale creatures blend with nostalgic memories from their shared childhood. Through painting, sculpture, and video works, the siblings have explored the borderland between reality and fantasy, which have merged, much like their own experiences of being children. Shadows in the night grow into frightening creatures, and small insects in the summer grass transform into inhabitants of a bustling fantasy world. The unknown and the frightening mix with beautiful daydreams, creating memories of a time when the world was equally filled with enchanting magic and dark dangers. Sprinkled with a child's fascination for the joy of collecting, for jewel-like objects, and enticing shapes of color. The Theselius siblings invite the viewer to peer into the mists of memories and hopefully catch a glimpse of their own childhood in this enchanting exhibition.


Isabel Theselius is educated at at the Valand Academy of Art in Gothenburg (BFA) and graduated from the University of California, Irvine and with an MFA. She mainly works with sculpture, video art and installations.


Ossian Theselius has studied art at Kristianstad Art School and his choice of expression is mainly painting and drawing in the form of murals. The artists work with public decorations, exhibitions in galleries and art galleries as well as larger collaborative art projects in Sweden and internationally.

SERGIO CHIARAMONTE (IT) Lost in-sights


25 March - 6 May • EXHIBITION EXTENDED TO 20/5 • The period 7/5 - 20/5 open by booking


Opening on Saturday 25/3 at 13:00 - 17:00


Sergio Chiaramonte (born in 1974 in Milan) studied psychology at the Catholic University of Milan. As a teenager he discovered and found an interest for analogue photography. His passion for photography intertwined later with studies in psychology and traditional chinese medicine. His photography became an experimental research of perception and visual communication, through a dialectical approach to the environment. Sergio is investigating in the interpretation of the free the gaze, in order to allow an immediate experience of the subject, as opposed to a logical-conceptual activity, which he consider secondary.


He has over the years deepened the photographic language as an expressive means. In particular, Sergio has carried out work on the urban landscape, underlining the complexity and contradictions present in it thanks to which it is possible to recognize them within oneself.


Sergio Chiaramonte has taken part in several photographic exhibitions including; Castello-Carchere Borbonico (Avvelino), Palazzo San Bernadino (Rossano/Cosenza), Open Exhibition for the City of Siena, Ex Carteria Latina (Rome), Palazzo Moroni (Padua), Spazio 53 (Voghera) etc.

EVA-TERÉZ GÖLIN (SE) JOEL HURLBURT (US/SE) & TIMO MENKE (DE)  Stranded


3/12 December 2022 - 11 March 2023


Opening on Saturday 3/12 at 13:00 - 17:00

Live performance / concert with SINGULAR on Saturday 3/12 at 15:30


Stranded is the result of an ongoing collaboration between Eva-Teréz Gölin and artist duo Joel Hurlburt & Timo Menke and is rooted in an increasingly algorithmic worldview that we now navigate as our second nature. The exhibition features photographic processes and cinematic works approaching each other from intersecting point of views, between artist duo and individual artist, between machine and human, between photography and moving image, between spaces and corporeality. Both found and fabricated material is processed with alternately alienating and world-building approaches.


Eva-Teréz Gölin (b. 1972) lives and works in Gothenburg. She has studied a post-graduate course at the Royal Academy of Arts in Stockholm (2016-2017) and has an MFA in photography from the Valand Academy in Gothenburg where she has been teaching since 2019. Her artistic practice is informed by the photographic image and its context. Gölin’s background in professional image editing and Fine Art printing forms the basis of her work – to transform the intangible and sometimes invisible information in digital image files into a physical dimension.


Joel Hurlburt (b. 1977) is an artist based in Stockholm. He recieved his BFA from Massachusetts College of Art, in Boston, USA, before moving to Sweden. After his MFA at Konstfack in 2014, he went on to study at KTH and KKH, where he studied scientific methods of research and digital processes for art making. He has exhibited and screened his work and collaborations nationally and internationally.


Timo Menke (b. 1967) is an interdisciplinary artist, director, and writer based in Stockholm. MFA from Konstfack 1999 where he also taught as Assistant Professor in the Art Department between 2004-2014. Multiple group and solo shows, film screenings, talks and collaboration projects nationally and internationally. Menke is represented by Moderna Museet Stockholm, Kalmar konstmuseum, Pori Art Museum and distributed by Filmform.

During his career, he also manages to work for world artists such as Iggy Pop, Madonna and Metallica.


Pontus Djanaieff's world is a deep dive into contemporary popular culture where his imagery mixes characters from childhood comic books, motifs from pinball games, fast food, music and GIFs from social media. All this comes together in an explosion that forms a world where high and low meet in color and form. In his exhibition Moonwalker created for Digitaliseum, he has taken on Michael Jackson as a theme.


Blobb.TV (b. 1996) is a multidisciplinary Indian/Cuban/Norwegian/Swedish artist based in Malmö. Educated at Konstfack and Hyper Island,  Blobb.TV invites the viewer to compress the space between pixels and humans through playful interaction and self-examination. Her current work blends animation, painting, and programming to expand traditional mediums of paint and video installation. She uses both participatory technologies and a touch of humor to critically examine contemporary cultures defined by perpetual screen time.

 

At Digitaliseum, Blobb.TV is exhibiting “Quantified Response”. The show displays a conjunction of recent work, asking questions about virtual symbioses and human behavior. Through augmented reality and interaction the artist invites visitors (of all ages and backgrounds) to take part in a repetitive conversation.

 

Blobb.TV has created a vast body of work consisting of commissions for Håkan Hellström, Swedish Parliament, Kristianstad Kommun, and more. She is currently in Residency in Stpln in Malmö and working on an animated short supported by the Swedish Arts Council.

They have done a public commission in Tallinn and have won 2nd and 3rd prize for public art in Estonia. Varvara & Mar has exhibited at MAD in New York, FACT in Liverpool, Santa Monica in Barcelona, Barbican in London, etc.


The exhibition Synthetic Landscapes brings together artworks of Varvara & Mar that talk about new image-scapes, which emerge from neural networks and algorithmic dimensions. The artists’ curiosity towards synthetic landscapes is demonstrated in several artworks, like POSTcard Landscapes from Lanzarote I and II, and Phantom Landscapes of Buenos Aires. Their interest lies in exploring a place’s identity through its digital shadow, which often re-paints reality. In other words, images overpower the nature of seeing without screen mediation.


Varvara (born in Tartu, Estonia in 1984) and Mar (born in Barcelona in 1981) live and work between Tallinn, Estonia, and Hong Kong/Guangzhou. Varvara has PhD of Philosophy in Art from the Estonian Academy of Arts, and Mar is currently a PhD candidate at Baltic Film, Media and Arts School in Tallinn University.

CAROLINA SANDVIK (SE) Interiora


29 May - 18 September 2021


The period 28 June and 18 September the exhibition is open only by booking.


Carolina Sandvik (born 1988 in Avesta), is a Malmö-based artist, filmmaker and animator. She received her master's degree in Free Art from Malmö Academy of the Arts in 2019 and her internship includes everything from scripts, production of figures and scenography to animation, editing and sound design.

With the animation medium, she builds a world that can function as an elevated grotesque reflection, or form a body for abstract sensations. There is a seamless transition between dream and reality, between the banal and the extraordinary. The aesthetics come largely from genre films, while details in props, gestures and behavior are taken from reality. The films often take place within the walls of the home where the animated characters live their seemingly ordinary lives until things suddenly start to look more and more strange. There seems to be a threat of danger that makes itself felt at an escalating pace, and a rampant nightmare takes its toll
beginning.


Sandvik's films have been shown at film festivals such as South by Southwest, Sitges Fantastic FF and
Tallinn Black Nights. The Expected was awarded the prize for Best Swedish Short Film / Startsladden at the Gothenburg Film Festival 2021. In addition to festivals, the most recent screenings have been at Inkonst in Malmö, Galleri Konstepidemin in Gothenburg, Falsterbo Strandbad Konsthall and Inter Arts Center in Malmö.

The exhibition is a collective exhibition with artstist from studio spaces; SULFUR, BUNKERN, ALTA & VISTA.


Since the 60s the industrial area of Norra Sorgenfri in Malmö has been an vibrant melting pot of Malmös artistic scene. Several artist studios rented in old factory buildnings coexisting in a rough synergy with the operating heavy industry on the site. Well into the millenium many of the companies has moved from the area and every year that goes by, a process of gentrification becomes evident. As the industries are moving out slowly the apartment buildings are being raised. Still in the area there are a few old industrial buildings left with artist studios and artist holding on to the area pinning Norra Sorgenfri to Malmös cultural map. In some parts of the area the soil of the ground saturated from industrial waste is still highly toxic.

KATJA HØST (NO) A man of one´s own


24 October - 28 November 2020

Opening Saturday 24 October kl. 12:00 - 16:00


Katja Høst (born 1972) lives and works in Oslo, Norway. She studied Photography at the Bergen Academy of Arts and Copenhagen School of Design. Høst has exhibited in a wide range of places in Norway (e.g. Kunstnernes Hus, Fotogalleriet, Preus museum, UKS.) as well as internationally (e.g. St. Petersburg, Toronto, Montreal, New York, Stockholm, Copenhagen).

 

The title of the show is derived from the classic book A room of one’s own by Virgina Wolf. Addressing how women as well as mass media participate in defining the male sex role, Høst replaces “room” with “man”. For what qualities in a potential male partner do women tend to feel attracted to? What match will invite a continued broadening of gender roles for women as well as men, extending the liberty Woolf so thoroughly argued for in her classic essay?

 

Høst combines inquiries in her private network of educated, middleclass women, scientific theory as well as mass media's representations of the male gender. These multiple reference points are juxtaposed through 3 videos and a text-based piece, reflecting on the male social sex role and its relation to women’s liberation.

Michael Mørk (*1959 DK) is a Danish artist. He lives and works in Copenhagen.


Michael Mørk works with painting in an expanded field. Mørks painting is of minimal character, and is based on the surface, but allows it to be expressed in a physical as well as a conceptual space. His exhibition at DIGITALISEUM consisted of a number of larger and smaller paintings that has the color shades of cosmetics as the focal point. In Mørks's practice, color is not so much explored with a color-theoretical approach, but more in an emotional perspective, as a social marker and a cross-cultural phenomenon. Mankind has always painted and used the skin as a canvas. Throughout time, body painting has had many different expressions and meanings. In contemporary Danish, the phrase "she is in full war paint" is found about a woman who is dressed up and dressed, but makeup is also used for everyday life or as an identity-creating element or a political statement. Makeup is thus created for use on the body, and the different colors therefore have an indirect relationship with the diversity of human bodies. In camouflage, a big murial approximately 3m by 10 m, has Mørk created a network of square fields illustrating a section of the many shades of the makeup palette


Michael Mørk is Autodidact and is a member of the Artists’ Association in Denmark. Member of the Royal Danish Academy. He has had solo exhibitions at Esbjerg Art Museum, Holstebro Art. Museum, Randers Art Museum, Overgaden Institute of Contemporary Art and latest Kunsthal Nord. Mørk was a member of North Exhibition Space. He was initiator and curator (with Ruth Campau) of Paintbox, Paintbox extensions and Box 2.0. Mørk is one half of the artist duo Allan Gabi and a member of the artist association Grønningen.

Opening Saturday 28 March 13:00-17:00

Artist Talk with artist Emelie Carlén & Sara Sjölin Saturday 28 March 15:00-15:30  (canceled)


The history of quoted allocation of women

Myths and muses; women's role in history writing. She has to earn her name, legitimize her skill and dedication.

The space is adjusted according to what time is capable of, what is required for the historical culture capital. In the name of quoted allocation of women, the road is cleared ahead and a smokescreen of diffuse corrected contexts appears.


Emelie Carlénis a Swedish artist based in Denmark graduated from The Danish Royal Academy of Fine Arts, with previous education from Umeå art academy and Akademie der bildenden Künste, Wien.


Emelie Carlén have her main focus on questioning the gendering of power-structures based on the

relation to- and the reading of our history. With an interest in how we come to adapt and

identify ourselves depending on - and in relation to our surroundings. In the form of installations, largely consisting of sculptures and mixed media, the central core has been in examining desires and its relation to objects and experiences, cultural structures and behaviors.


Sara Sjölin  (b. 1991 in Sweden) is an artist living and working in Copenhagen, and graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2018.

 

Sara Sjölin is mainly working with speech recordings, video and performance, often based

on autobiographical storytelling. Sportcast 2 is a comedy-drama where Sara Sjölin is using a football game between Malmö FF and Helsingborgs IF in 2012 as a backdrop. Sjölin tells stories about her previous relationship to an emotional colonizer wearing a sexy linen suit; Helmet the helmet carrier. The storytelling is characterized by radical shifts between comedy and drama, through Sjölin’s switching perspective, which mirrors the emotional extremes that the relationship was affected by.

TOVE KJELLMARK (SE) I am conscious of the world by means of my body

CB3 (SE) The Exhibition


28th September - 9th November


Opening / Vernissage Saturday 28 September 18:00 - 24:00 //

MALMÖ GALLERINATT 2019.


Kl. 19:15  • Performance "SportsCast 2" med Sara Sjölin (SE)

Kl. 19:45  • Concert / Live Jazz/rock trio CB3 - Charlotta Burning Trio (SE)


Tove Kjellmark (1977) was born and based in Stockholm. She received her MFA at the Royal College of Art in Stockholm in 2009 and has since exhibited regularly on the international art scene.


Tove Kjellmark is interested in the dark recesses of the body and she has made Technoanimalism her signature. Through her work, she dissects perception, the body, eroticism and "the too private" in a very direct and at the same time subtle way. Directness pokes holes in something in the viewer, something even before the confrontation did not even existed. In media she has been called a modern Dr. Frankenstein, but her work is more like a kind of uncovering than the being. As a tool and material, she often uses her own body in combination with home-built machines and advanced new technology.


Tove Kjellmark has exhibited frequently in galleries and museums in Sweden and internationally. The Swedish television programs Kobra and Babel have covered her artistic investigative process during the past two years. Currently she is working on a big outside sculpture in bronze; a public commission for a schoolyard at an elementary school in Stockholm. Kjellmark is also making an art and essay book together with Per Johansson (human ecologist) as well as working towards two solo shows later this fall. She has received several grants from foundations such as The Swedish Arts Grants Committee, The Henry Moore foundation etc. Selected exhibitions: Erik Nordenhake Gallery (2019), Moore contemporary, Perth, Australia (2018), Katarina Church in Stockholm (2017), Manchester Art Gallery (2016), Royal British Society of Sculptors, London (2015), Stockholm Central railway station (2015), Andersson/Sandström Gallery, Umeå (2014), Geijutsu Kouminkan, Tokyo (2014), LEAP in Berlin (2013), Marabouparken, Stockholm (2013), La Casa Encendida, Madrid (2012), Galleri Stene Projects, Stockholm (2010), Ars Electronica, Linz (2010), Transmediale, Berlin (2010), The International Documentary Film Festival, IDFA, Amsterdam (2009), Tensta konsthall, Stockholm (2009).

Opening Saturday 25 May 13:00-17:00

Artist Talk with artist Måns Holst-Ekström Saturday 25 Maj 14:30-15:15


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.



LISE NØRHOLM (DK) Overhovedet


6 April - 18 May

Opening Saturday 6 April 13.00-17.00

Artist Talk with artist Lise Nørholm Saturday 6 April 14:30-15:00


Lise Nørholm (b. 1961 in Frederikshavn) is a Danish artist, who lives and works in Copenhagen. Graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts 1992 and The Danish Design School 1985.


Nørholms work is concentrated on words, typographically and semantically, arranging text and lines on paper in certain ornaments or rhythms. The texts are found in material at hand, given a more existential meaning when out of the original context. The samples of words, different gaps and holes leave a visual concrete poetic whole. The surfaces are often behind glass in frames and sometimes placed in different stands or tripods, taken from everyday life; thus adding a kind of semi-function to the work, playing with presentation. Nørholms work is mostly analog i.e. with the use of letraset (transferrable lettering); it is both pre-pc as well as post-pc and the expression has an early technological vibe to it. The title OVERHOVEDET (Danish word for `overall` `whatsoever`) is from a display, situated on a central wall in the exhibition space.


Latest exhibitions: 2019 vide vidder (wide open spaces). RooftoP (public light sign) Den Hvide Kødby, Cph. 2018 So You, too, like Fruitcake? Bonamatic, Cph. 2017 Hyper Complex and Without Limits, 15 posters at Sydhavn Station, Cph. The Omnipresent (Unintentional) Fountain, Pirpa, Cph.

KATJA HØST (NO) As long as there is light 


10 March - 21 April

        

Opening Saturday 10 March  12:00 - 16:00

Saturday 10 March 14:30  artist talk with Katja Høst


Katja Høst (born 1972) lives and works in Oslo, Norway. She studied Photography at the Bergen Academy of Arts and Copenhagen School of Design. Høst has exhibited in a wide range of places in Norway (e.g. Kunstnernes Hus, Fotogalleriet, Preus museum, UKS.) as well as internationally (e.g. St. Petersburg, Toronto, Montreal, New York, Stockholm, Copenhagen).


In the exhibition As long as there is light at Digitaliseum, a selection of photographs from the artists latest photobook, Dasein, are presented together with new and older video pieces. Dasein is the result of Høst’s return to art and photography, five years after she retrained in an attempt to quit as an artist. The necessity of a photographic practice nevertheless pushed itself on to the artist's new everyday life and opened up a new approach to photography in her work. “With my camera as crutch and companion, I captured glimpses of time, my time. The house up the street. Our tired bathroom. Kelly suspended in midair above the trampoline. Could this really be my photograph?”


Høst’s means of expression are highly project-dependent and range from sound-installations to shaping landscapes. However, photography and video hold a prominent place. Her work is concerned with identity as a flexible and context-dependent entity. Parameters in social situations, collective understanding and political constructions influence how we understand ourselves and the world around us. These parameters, and how they influence us, is the target of her investigations.

Malmö Gallery Night 2016 24 September 6 - 12 pm


David Krantz born 1965. Lives and works in Malmö. In his art he has previously used traditional techniques although his works are far from traditional. Often he takes as a starting point an older technique or style and produces his own version of it. By twisting the contents and moving the viewer’s perspective he brings the past into our present.


Over the past fifteen years, David has moved from painting and other traditional techniques toward the digital. He works on the frontline of what is technically possible using software and 3D-printing. Despite all the technology that forms the foundations of his works they are not perceived as mechanical or rigid but lively and organic.


David Krantz has studied at the Art Schools Forum in Malmö and Valand Academy in Gothenburg where he studied Fine Art and New Media. He has had solo exhibitions and been a part of group exhibitions at Malmö Konsthall, Moderna Museet Malmö, Liljevalchs, Form/Design Center Malmö, NorrlandsOperan, Krognoshuset Lund, Varbergs konsthall, the Dunker Culture House, Tjörnedala konsthall, Borås konstmuseum and Ystads konstmuseum as well as many other galleries and art institutions.

PAUL VAN DEN HOUT (NETHERLANDS) Unidentified   


12th March - 16 April


Opening Saturday 12th March at 1 - 5 pm

Artist talk Saturday 30th April at  1:15 - 2 pm


Paul van den Hout was born in in 1963 in Goirle, the Netherlands. He studied at the Royal Academy of the Arts and Design in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, hometown of Hieronymus Bosch. He has worked as an artist since 1988.

Initially his work was mainly installation art, often involving musical instruments and referring to the relations between the Eastern and Western hemisphere. Part of these projects were magazines, performances and digital media.

In recent years Van den Hout’s work has developed into pixeled sculptures. Changes in society after the turn of the millennium were effective in this shift to investigate what we as humanity want to see or not. Although the pixel-works at first were based upon censorship that soon was extended to the subject of what visually

(and materialistically) will be lost in the near future: digital nostalgia or archaeology.

Paul van den Hout has exhibited and sold his work in Europe, Asia and North America.
