Alexandra Hedberg

1987, Sverige

Just pointless

I work mostly with human portraiture. Advertising, social media and how we chose to present ourselves are underlying themes, reflected from an existentialist viewpoint. In recent years I have focused on laughter exploring the subject in different materials, but always with the drawing as a starting point. My works take the final form of everything […]

Anna Sörenson Rydh

1982, Sverige

Banana Cone

I am interested in absurdity because it generates a creative cognitive process; it moves us out of the ordinary and shifts our gaze, if only for a moment. For me absurdity is a way to critique and to speak about problems around us. Unfolding everyday practices I find that absurdity is all around me, in […]

Jeppe Hein

1974, Denmark (Germany)

Modified Social Bench #07 (2005) #09 (2005) #Q (2008)

My approach to a public project, and the reconfiguration of a public space, focuseson the attempt to integrate art into everyday life, by embedding it into the area. Therelationship between artwork, architecture, and the private and public space is mykey concern. A structure of association between space, object and observer shouldbe created. Consequently, my public […]

Jacob Dahlgren

1970 Sweden

Early One Morning Eternity Sculpture

Being an artist isn’t only about having a creative streak – you have to be just a little bit crazy too! And Jacob Dahlgren has certainly earned his stripes in both regards. Literally. Keeping to his vow to wear nothing but striped T-shirts for the rest of his life, Dahlgren sets out into the world […]

Heini Aho

1979, Finland

Corner is A Place Where Two Sides Meet

Heini Aho (born 1979 in Turku) combines elements of sculpture, installation and the moving image into works addressing issues of space and perceptions of the environment. In her works, the analytical meets the intuitive, and the material meets the immaterial. Aho’s method is based on observing a concrete phenomenon and the law-like characteristics of the […]

My name is Inna, more known as iZZY iZVNE , I’m a street artist from Moldova. I work in my own style, which consists of 3D forms and calligraphy. I like to feel how my walls breathe and create my own universe, which makes us think about what is hidden behind empty gray walls and […]

Karima Klasen

1972, Germany

Fishing for pedestrians

My painting and installation works confront space and time in the broader sense. I conceive of the physical space as canvas and painterly ground. Geometric lines and areas are placed in relation to the particular parameters of each site, individual elements of spaces are accentuated with adhesive tape, paper, and acrylic paint so that ultimately […]

Ulrika Sparre

1974 Sweden

I am not useful therfore I am

I mitt konstnärliga arbete intresserar jag mig för samtida sanningssökande och behovet av existentiella frågeställningar i vårt sekulära samhälle. Jag undersöker skapandet av tro och identitet samt uppkomsten av olika subkulturer och trossytem. Jag vill belysa de överenskommelser vi gör runt vedertagna sanningar och relationerna till det vi kollektivt kommer överens om. I mitt arbete […]

Johan Ledung

1952, Sweden

Mina mostrar

Jag är inte vad man kallar en politisk konstnär. Men jag tror att konsten har en kraft som kan verka på flera sätt. Jag vill att min publik skall: stanna upp, ta ett djupt andetag, sätta sig ned, förundras och kanske le. Och när de går – i alla fall gå lite långsammare än när […]

1975 Iceland

Dog and Lady Kiosk

Is it possible to speak of ‘typical’ Icelandic art in this time of globalized contemporary art? The answer is yes, something which the Icelandic contributions to this year’s OpenART show quite clearly. Iceland is a remarkable country, with a national population no greater than that of a mid-sized European city, a neighbourhood in Shanghai. It […]

Natasja van der Meer

1969, Netherlands

One

In her work, which consists mainly of sculptures, Van der Meer regularly incorporates existing objects to create iconic images with a sense of humor. In order to express her ideas, the artist works with scale: Van der Meer’s sculptures are often a scaled version of existing, smaller objects. The adjustment of the size of these […]

Egill Saebjörnsson

1973 Iceland

Mr Piano and Mrs Pile

1987 Spain

Reincarnation failure

I am interested in the exchanges and interactions between the visual and media arts with other disciplines, such as performing arts and technology. The themes of my work revolve around perception of reality, individual and communal behavior, and communication. I am fascinated and disturbed by human beings, and mesmerized and puzzled by moving images, moving […]

Shoplifter

Nervelings

born 1969 in Iceland There is a special meaning associated with hair in many cultures. Hair arouses feelings and perhaps even very early memories of a mother’s hair while nursing. It has strongly sensuous but also directly erotic associations and in our contemporary society has now also become linked with disgust – that stuff that grows wildly […]

Hanna Holmgren

1986, Sweden

Det stora blå

There is a madness in the never-ending repetition. At the same time there is serenity. My work is a balance act between endurance and obsession. Loop after loop, stitch after stitch, I build great masses of textile material. Small marks, remnants of the action of the hand, creates monumental wholes. The work is controlled and […]

Markus Kåhre

1969, Finland

No Title

Sometimes we use the word subtle to describe the inner quality of a work of art. A keyword for something we have perceived and been affected by, but words can’t quite describe: the moment when the artwork opens itself to us in its full depth. It’s often a matter of something that fundamentally disrupts our […]

Ellinor Augustini

1985, Sweden

Trinkets 2

In an increasingly polarized society, art has an important role to play. Values that felt selfevident a few years ago now feel negotiable, and when art reflects the present, it can help us to discuss and question the world we see around us and thus unite people. For me, it is important to ask questions. […]

1967 Czech republik

Pink Tank

A tank is the ultimate war machine, designed to meet its contemporary threats. Weapon technology development is part of the armament spiral that we are still living in and, several decades after the fall of the Wall, has increased significantly once again. A tank is not only equipped with the best countermeasures, it’s also camouflaged […]

Guerrilla Girls

Estrogen Bomb

They began hacking through art history’s centuries-thick testosterone crust of male domination in 1985. This year’s Estrogen Bomb is a challenge and visible call to arms for a feminist (art) world. Let us present the art world’s troublemaker and nagging conscience since the 1980s – Guerrilla Girls! Lots of growling Rs in that name… and […]

Johannes Espedal

1988 Norway

Preludium

A sculpture can be defined by the material from which it is made. A particular material can convey weightiness, weightlessness, danger, freedom, history and even poetry. Using a great deal of sensitivity and knowhow about various materials, Johannes Espedal creates his sculptures and installations. Many say that we are living in the Anthropocene (an epoch […]

Cornelia Konrads

Schleudersitz

Schleudersitz (Ejection Seat) Cornelia Konrads brings in her works mural crowns and tree trunks to fly. They rise and seem to drift weightless into the open space. The ambivalence between illusion and desillusion, desire and danger, the dream to fly and the nightmare to fall, manifests in Cornelia Konrads’ work. Is this Schleudersitz a perfidious […]

What happens when people – especially those who are used to the rituals and dynamics […]

As I Move Up I Will Eventually See The Horizon

Art that consists of words is usually considered conceptual art. The idea is more important than the actual material manifestation. This art form is perhaps the most obvious example of the desire of the artist to communicate with us. Conceptual art has been around a long time, more than 100 years in fact, and represented […]

1986, Sweden

Toolbox

In my work are bodies that get consumed a recurrent theme and in the center is the girl with her dreams and search for identity. A lot of the inspiration comes from so-called girl culture and from that, I’m borrowing colors, symbols, materials, and tendencies. One of the biggest motivation in my work is my […]

Santiago Mostyn is from the United States but lives here in Sweden and is one of the hottest names of our time. His art is essentially conceptual and asks contemporary questions about things like identity, skin colour, borders and whiteness. But he also asks questions from a historical perspective about the values and norms that […]

Ia/IIb

A series of exhibitions was held at the Reykjavik Art Museum in the summer of 2015 under the Icelandic title Kunstchlager. In English, this title is a combination of the rather highbrow word ‘art’ and the more popular term ‘hits’. It was appropriate that one of the exhibitors in the Kunstchlager or ‘Art Hits’ summer […]

Santiago Mostyn

1981, USA

Mirakel (miracle)

What does the word ‘miracle’ mean in our time? Miracle is associated with a religious experience, often with divine intervention; a transformation of that which had seemed completely hopeless into a factor triggering a wonderful outcome. Santiago Mostyn’s light sculpture with the brightly shining word ‘Mirakel’ could almost be viewed as a contemporary omen. The […]

A place in Europe

Within the process of artistic research and a developing practice, new methods might constitute another form of art. The project is centered upon the idea and method of a round table where we – a number of competences ­– have seeked to think together. This has led to a productive collaboratation. The divergent competences that make up the project team has all contributed to the development […]

Maskin för bakgrundsljud (Machine for background sounds)

All cities have characteristic sounds that are so common we seldom notice them. They belong to the many different activities of everyday life, which come together to form a distinctive song about that specific city. But the sounds have of course changed over time. Each historic era has its own unique sounds. If the sounds […]

In general I constantly test, challenge and refine materials and technologies in new contexts and compositions. I make high-tech materials establish sculptural and performative connections to materials from the local DIY shop and low-key industrial producers. I like to activate the viewer in perceptive and cognitive experiments between borders of science and mysticism. My work […]

Filthy Luker & Pedro Estrellas

Octopus Attacks!

Art in the public space must often fight a tough battle for visual space against the many attention-grabbing elements of the urban environment. It’s not strange that many artists go all out to achieve a format that gets noticed. Big artworks in ‘common’ materials are usually limited in their dimensions by the simple matter of […]

Unnecessary machine

Jens Haraldsson’s Unnecessary Machine is anything but what the title suggests, although it is true that its function is a bit unclear… What is clear is what it says about art, however: that it offers a crossroads of possible realities that forces us to look at our current position and the course ahead – where […]

The sculpture Blue Marble consists of thirteen marble boulders arranged tightly together in a square, placed in Örebro Castle’s park.

Elsa Tomkowiak (1981, FR) has been in search of the most radical painting tools starting with her art studies at ENSA in Dijon.

Wielding broom-like brushes, […]

Åsa Jungnelius could, along with predecessors Eric Höglund and Kjell Engman, be considered among the most expressive practitioners of Swedish glass art.
