Magasin 3 opens the group exhibition BETWIXT with a new work by the Swedish artist Sofia Hultén and installations by some of the currently most renowned contemporary international artists.

The exhibition encourages visitors to focus on the moment between impressions, before moving on from one work to the next. In these in-between spaces, Sofia Hultén has created a work that is integrated with the exhibition, together with works by Kendell Geers (South Africa), Gabriel Orozco (Mexico), Jonathan Monk (UK), Cosima von Bonin (Germany), Paul Chan (USA) and Mona Hatoum (UK/palestinian). These video works, sculptures and installations are all part of the collection of Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall and were created in the past two years.

"Sofia Hultén is one of the most exciting young artists on the European art scene. Her installation is a personal comment on works we have selected together from the Magasin 3 collection. The new work consists of a series of films and sculptures that can be compared to a detective investigation. It is featured between the other works in the exhibition and is based on doors, which are themselves in-between rooms," explains Richard Julin, curator of the exhibition.

Sofia Hultén was born in 1972. She lives and works in Berlin and Birmingham. Her latest exhibitions are Mutual Annihilation, Künstlerhaus Bremen (2008), Auflösung, Skulpturenpark Berlin Zentrum, Berlin (2008), Preparations For Uncertain Doom, Familiars, Ikon Gallery, Birmingham (2007) and Galerie Adler Videospace, New York (2007). In 2007, she was awarded a IASPIS studio grant in Stockholm, and during 1997/98 she recieved a DAAD scholarship in Berlin.
