Peter Hagdahl, Interferenser
Thursday 25 Jan 5pm-8pm
SKF/Konstnärshuset proudly introduces the spring exhibition program with Interferenser, a newly produced exhibition by Peter Hagdahl.
Interferenser consists of two mental map images, two parallel paintings with projections. These create a form of monumental flow charts over inner and outer movements, and the commentaries that can arise when the media flow encounters the individual’s own associations and references. The installation also visualizes the contradictory interpretations that can arise in the encounter between the public and the private.
Hagdahl’s art is often comprised of interdisciplinary and poetic renditions in the charged field between contradictions, events and circumstances – where the character of the site as well as the current situation are important components and starting points. A common theme throughout Hagdahl’s oeuvre has been the attempt at portraying the unstable and transient, where every description or construction is directly dependent on courses of events and reflections both outside and inside the viewers themselves.
P. Hagdahl has, among other things, worked as professor at the Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, Stockholm and The Royal Institute of Fine Art in Stockholm. Since 2014, he has been curator for the Public Art Agency Sweden where he works with building related configurations in a wide variety of situations and formats in the public space.
Hagdahl’s artistic practice spans between research projects and exhibitions in various formats and contexts both in Sweden and abroad. Among the venues where he exhibited are, Moderna Museet, Stockholm; ICC Tokyo; Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; Kiasma, Helsinki; and Centro Cultural del Conde Duque, Madrid.
