Cooper & Gorfer consists of the artists Sarah Cooper (US, 1974) and Nina Gorfer, (Austria, 1979). The artist duo is known for their distinct painterly aesthetics and poetic hybrid image collages. Their work often revolves around issues of cultural identity and the genius loci, in search for the connection between people, story and place.

Mystrium

8 April, 2017 - 1 October, 2017

Mystrium/Art’s Mystrious is a diverse, quirky and different exhibition that does not abide by the usual boundaries of the artistic world. The exhibition shines a light on the overlooked and parallel art sphere made up by self-taught and/or anonymous artists – and hence broadens and deepens the discussion around what is considered art.

Eva Hild / Entity

11 June, 2016 - 25 September, 2016

In the fairy tale “Alice in Wonderland”, English author Lewis Carroll (1832-1898) describes seven-year-old Alice falling into a rabbit hole many kilometres deep. The same breath-taking feeling that Alice of the fairy tale must have felt can be experienced when seeing Eva Hild’s magical sculptures with their seemingly endless depths, entry points and variations.

Photography beside itself – Lars Tunbjörk 1956-2015

11 June, 2016 - 25 September, 2016

Few people have the privilege to influence the style of the global photography scene. However, Lars Tunbjörk belonged to the small group of photographers who with their gaze was able to make us see the world through different eyes. Shooting like Tunbjörk became a concept that photographers during the 1990s had to relate to. Lars Tunbjörk saw what everyone else also saw but were unable to capture through photography.

Joakim Eskildsen / A world I can believe in

19 March, 2016 - 29 May, 2016

In the early 1930’s, British filmmaker John Grierson coined the term ”documentary” in order to describe the emerging genre of photography documenting reality. Since then, it has been a source of debate for photographers as well as scholars.

The photographer Joakim Eskildsen, born 1971 in Copenhagen, could be described as a documentary photographer, yet at the same time as a humanistic photographer. A pictorial poet who in ”A World I Can Believe In” describes ”reality” as he sees it in three series: Nordtegn, The Roma Journeys and Home Works. Strandverket regards Joakim Eskildsen, with his deeply human style of photography, as a worthy successor of the world-class photographers we have displayed since opening in 2012: Aron Jonason, Håkan Ludwigson, Christer Strömholm, Lennart Nilsson and Maria Miesenberger.

Ann Edholm meets Hilma af Klint

19 March, 2016 - 29 May, 2016

Hilma af Klint – A Pioneer of Abstraction was the title of a major exhibition of the Swedish painter Hilma af Klint’s oeuvre that was curated by Stockholm’s museum of modern art, Moderna Museet in 2013. When the exhibition’s highly successful tour of Europe ended at the Henie Onstad Kunstsenter in the Norwegian capital it had attracted more than a million visitors. It is a great honour for Strandverket, together with London’s Serpentine Gallery, to be able to show parts of the exhibition in the spring of 2016. We have chosen to let Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) meet one of the most respected artists of our own time, the Swedish painter Ann Edholm, born in 1953, in an exhibition that questions the very idea of what abstract painting actually is – and what is meant by figurative art.
