Stockholm Culture Night: Spending Time with Ghosts – Ida-Johanna Lundqvist

22 April 2023 18:00-23 April 2023 00:00

During Stockholm Culture Night 2023, we present the exhibition Spending Time with Ghosts by artist Ida-Johanna Lundqvist.

In the archive of hundreds of white plaster sculptures that make up Carl Eldh’s old studio, Ida-Johanna Lundqvist’s new sculptures are presented. Here, among the phantoms that have been models for sculptures in other materials in completely different places, a snail suddenly seems to stretch its way in an unclear direction. From the ceiling hangs transparent balls with encapsulated, whitish mushrooms. A pheasant decorated with fruits meets the eye. All of them more or less transparent, several of them clear symbols of the transition to the other side.

The exhibition touches upon the approach to the inevitable end, and the symbols, rituals and practices that surrounded death historically. With a tangible accuracy, the sculptures have been chiseled out and then cast in materials such as silicone and epoxy. In the more than a hundred-year-old studio where time seems to have stood still, the artworks vibrate and summon those who are missing, and the time that has passed.

Free entrance during Stockholm Culture Night 2023. The exhibition is part of the project Brita’s Salon with the support of Kulturrådet.
