story through material
To experience the world through material, not as a resource, but as a story about Before - NOW - After. Through the material we can get familiar with this story and formulate new and pressing issues.
Curated by Fredric Gunve and Kajsa G. Eriksson
We put material (textiles, iron, linen, copper, cherry and yard) in an environmental cycle and into context that takes us beyond form, object and artifact.
Through the material we ask questions of our time. Mandatory search for identity in the imaginary digital space but at the same time, we are body and part of the physical space where the materials control possibilities and limits.
The price of gold (copper, oil, cotton, birch) rises while the flow of virtual data is increasing every second.
The material is taken with all the senses, smell, sight, sound, touch and taste. The material creates us as individuals, makes us who we are, what we are.
This curatorial position open for a contemporary political interpretation of the works presented, a reading and an exploration through the environmental cycle and its political stories.
