“True Fiction” photograph and Video Art Exhibition by Swedish artists Lennart Alves and Marit Lindberg
An exhibition by two contemporary Swedish artists, Lennart Alves and Marit Lindberg.
Lennart Alves works mainly with photography and film. His work deals mostly with subjects related to sight and perception, and how it forms our values. He often uses landscape as motif to obtain a less culturally defined imagery.
Marit Lindberg works primarily with video as a medium. During the last few years her works have been based around narrative structures, collective memories, individual stories that together form a narrative, language and gaps appearing in translation processes. She is interested in the process of mythologizing as it emerges when a story is retold enough times.
Lennart Alves will present a series of black photographs called The American Heritage. The project is both a tribute to Ad Reinhardt and a personal reaction to the global political reality of today.
Marit Lindberg will show a series of three short videos on language, which strive to reflect some of the delight and frustration found in trying to communicate with your neighbour – Vampire and Skeleton, A lesson in Finnish grammar and Practical Chinese. She will also show the documentary Flamenco in Taipei that takes up issues concerning dreams of a different life and the exotic regard for far away places.
The exhibition will open on Nov 30th.
