Loulou Cherinet / State Design

2023-10-13 to 2024-04-07

Loulou Cherinet’s art moves between the documentary and the constructed. In spatial installations and representations, she uses narrative to explore abstract concepts, including the manifestation of politics in physical environments and the interrelationships among people.

Commissioned by Bildmuseet, Cherinet has created a large-scale spatial installation, drawing inspiration from historical panorama painting and 360-degree storytelling. Encircled by immense paintings, museum visitors are invited to reflect on our present and the possibility of creating new worlds and futures.
