press release

Ingenuous but scary cardboard models of bunkers and pistols, detailed copper prints of troubled love and dreams, and collage portraits of Chechen women suicide bombers are just some examples of what is on display in Iaspis' new Project Studio. The six artists in the exhibition share an interest in the formal aspects of art production. They also show special devotion to the craftsmanship of their particular medium and method. Whether they work with etchings, video, wall paintings, cardboard installations, theatre plays or macramé-like paper collages, each artist shows special devotion to the craftsmanship of his or her particular medium and method. However, they move beyond the formal aspects and devise encounters of different worlds and spheres in their work. Thus, the form turns into a formality -- something important, even crucial without overshadowing all else -- rather than just formalism.

The participating artists stem from a wide range of countries from four continents. For several of them, this is the first exhibition in Sweden.
