Contemporary Myths and Artifacts | Stockholm Gallery Weekend 2023 | Hanna Antonsson

 

 

‘Contemporary Myths and Artifacts’ exhibition presents twenty-four artists and, with them, an array of new histories and metonymies for contemporary life. At its core, it is an exhibition about the material of now, of chrome, pixel, and stone, but also modern myths, lores, and icons. Informed by the artistic practices of storytelling and everyday divinity, it is also an exhibition about companionship; warnings delivered as promises and ancestorial acts of soothing paid forward for the inevitability of a complex life, made more complex by acts of creativity and technology. Thus, in the ruin of an old gas building, the sky falls to the carpet. Otherworldly figures emerge in and amongst the roadkill, and inaudible translations of dreams and delusion linger. There is truth in whispers and heart in wood.
– words by Nathalie Viruly
