OPENING: ELIAS CRESPIN / CHRONOMORPHOSIS
Elias Crespin's mobile sculptures move slowly and gracefully in intricate, precise formations, seemingly floating freely in the air. Circles, squares, lines, and triangles in metal or acrylic, suspended by barely noticeable nylon threads, create choreographies based on mathematical algorithms. This is the first presentation of Elias Crespin’s work in the Nordic countries.

OPENING: EIGHT DEGREES / CONTEMPORARY ART ON THE FOREST
Contemporary art exploring our complex relationship with the forest, ranging from ideas of an inviolable intrinsic value to the conception of something to be utilised, such as an economic asset or a space for recreation. What is a forest? And what pressing questions about it are relevant here and now?

OPENING: SWEDISH PICTURE BOOK OF THE YEAR

A blood-filled mosquito is swallowed by a dragonfly, which is eaten by a toad, which is eaten by a snake, which is swallowed by a gull, which is taken by a seal. Aron Landahl has created both images and text for the award-winning picture book Alla äter alla [Everybody Eats Everybody]. The exhibition presents all the original paintings for the book.


OPEN WORKSHOP
Get inspired by Aron Landahl’s Alla äter alla, and create in our workshop, open for all ages.
