Exhibition Sånt som händer - Kerstin Lindström
01.12.2022 - 21.01.2023
Art Gallery Härnösand, Stora Torget, SE
The visual appearance of the exhibition is based on Elsa Montell’s raanu Bear’s Hibernation and original typography, hand-carved by Matti Saanio. Graphic material is designed by Venla Valmu 2022.
The exhibition has the Swedish title SÅNT SOM HÄNDER. This has a dubblemeaning and can be translated as THINGS THAT HAPPENS or THINGS LIKE HANDS.
Condition, time and place are the starting points of the exhibition SÄNT SOM HÄNDER. Two themes recur. The story of a living nature in transition and the confrontation with humans in relation to their environment from a feminist perspective. Here is a connection to artistic craftsmanship and a red thread anchored in my own story. We are all organisms in a continuous stream of events.
Kerstin Lindström's interest reveals around places that have a strong connection to the ground. Some are dense, concentrated, overgrown. Others carry the imprint of past activities. Some places open themselves and invite action. The choice of colour and material is crucial. She folds, creases, builds, packs, and pleats wool, felt and iron. She crochets in metal and other coarser materials and experiments with different types of colour. Combining the works with video, photo and audio.
