In REPEAT FORWARD six young artists who explore abstract and material-based expressions through different mediums are presented. The possibilities and limitations of painting, sculpture, and sound art is being tested at a time where no discipline has any advantage above another. The art is created in a contemporary context, but reflects upon signs and codes from modern art history.
Through different expressions related to content and material compositions, works which have art historical references to modernism´s abstract expressionism, naivism, surrealism and minimalism, are on display. New liberating questions about sensual recognition and the objects´ condition are incorporated in the artistic process, as a way out of postmodernism´s language play against a visual turn, where close contact with materials, matter and the object are given attention.
Artists: Anna Daniell (NO), Carl Mannov (DK), Kim Kvello (NO), Lina Norell (SE), Ragna Bley (SE), THERESE FRISK (SE)
