To complete a collection (specified and unspecified objects)


The work of artist and designer Gustaf Nordenskiöld revolves around the memories of objects and time. Sculptures that reflects an exploration of unknown places and cultures coupled with interpretations of the contemporary we live in. Ambiguous objects that are easily identified and mysterious at the same time, a work that activates memories and reminiscent of the body.

Nordenskiölds works are rooted in real objects, but often the actual area of use is transformed. His works are in the space between recognition, ambiguity, figuration and abstraction.

There is a physical presence through method, a primitive and sophisticated power transmission to the material, where traces of the process is important in the finished objects. To preserve and display an action, a time. To freeze a moment for posterity as a memory of its creation.

The lecture will be held in Swedish.
