Summer exhibition: Släpljus

12 May-2 October

With a site specific starting point in the work of the late Carl Eldh, the studio museum and it’s collections, Släpljus explores ways of relating to history and historiography, winding between the personal and larger historical narratives. From the wetness of a mollusk, to echoing empty exoskeletons or archeological fragments from times of war – nestled within the collections of the museum – six young artists pose questions on personal and collective memory, hybrid histories and identities, preservation and care, attempting to make sense of how to relate to what is our place in the winding path of time.

Other than a romantic shimmer, the exhibition title Släpljus (trailing, or dragging light) also refers to a low light setting used by historical conservators in examining ancient artifacts searching for previously unnoticed details in pursuit of unveiling new perspectives of bygone times.

Bringing new mediums, formats, histories and ideas into the museum, the exhibition wishes to probe, perhaps some of the most fundamental questions embedded within the human experience – What are our possibilities to savor more than shards of the present into the future? How do we relate to time, history and the inescapable act of disappearance, that in the end, we will all be a part of?
