An intense portrayal of a seemingly meaningless everyday life. But these intimate close-ups show us something other than just eternally recurring routines. For out of the cracks from the civilized facade seeps another story forward, the story of a life where every desire is dictated by nature, a nature which tries everything to escape their own terms.

It is the gaps that interests me, the film is looping caught in the same act. In the decision you phase out the past to begin dealing with the future, a sentence I found in a book about Hannah Arendt. The camera trigger symbolizes the moment by materializing the decision; to decide, release and create an image. In one of my series I have compared this choice with the the choices we make in life, in our everyday life. These decisions are not without consequence, neither for ourself or our surroundings. I become encouraged and find hope reading Arendt, because she gives us the initiative, and thereby also the possibility to act. From under the carpet I decide my next move.

By Linda Hofvander (Click to view)

Ways to describe gathers three photographic series by Linda Hofvander and is put together in collaboration with the graphic designer Magda Lipka Falck. The text in the book, What is at stake?, is in both Swedish and English.

Linda Hofvander is a young Swedish artist working with photography and film. In her works, the materials used and the specific rules of the photographic image making, are in the centre to create a choreography, and provide the foundation for her images. The bare and simple motifs are loaded by a different way of seeing – where a magic occurs in the factual.

"The photographs of Kalle Sanner are contemplative studies of light and its constant transformation. The act of photographing is more central than the subject and location.

There is a painterly quality in Kalle Sanner photographs and the darkest ones recall Mark Rothko’s saturated and rust-red images. He dwells not in the gloom but allows light to guide him through the rooms. He observes how the winter sun’s raking light induces the walls’ surfaces and then lets his eyes wander out the window until the image dissolves into a white cloud. In the images, he focuses on details which, when illuminated, receive a monumental character. His subtle observations of geometric shapes – where tall towers emerge from the shadows – creates a sense of vertigo. If photographs are drawings in light you could say that Kalle Sanner’s portrait of light actually captures the essence of photography."

(III)
By Simon Berg (Click to view)

The realistic photography of Simon Berg let us view the world from a more physical perspective than we are used to. The claustrophobic close ups of body parts and everyday items break the boundaries of our vision and penetrate deep in to the objects themselves. Like the foot, which can not be viewed as a foot any longer since the focus is on the details; the crooked toes pressed to the floor, the blood filled skin’s pattern and the sharp nails slowly pressing themselves out of the flesh.

But ”(III)” is also a personal project which revelovement around objects is characterized by melancholy as well as a longing for what used to be. It is closed and stuffy and the scene on which this asocial realism take place is surrounded by a compact darkness that does not let the eyes escape.

Det som blir kvar
By Emanuel Cederqvist (Click to view)

Emanuel Cederqvist's photo book "Det som blir kvar" is a moving documentation of what is left of an estate once its contents are divided up and sold off. His photos captures the intermediary stage between one life and the next, whilst retaining the objective gaze of administration.

"I have been a photographer for real estate agents in Gothenburg since 2009. The homes I visit are often clean, styled and the personal belongings are removed, nevertheless what is private is clearly visible.

There are many different reasons why a house will be sold. Often it’s because someone’s life situation has changed radically. Separations, births or death.

There is something extremely sad with the homes where someone has died. There is always a certain sentiment in the air. What remains is a collection of photos from the estates where someone just died, taken between 2009 and 2013."

By Lotta Törnroth (Click to view)

"In her series To Wait for the Inevitable: Narratives from the Sea, Lotta Törnroth has weaved a story from that what life is made of and from what we carry inside us. With a delicate dramatic composition, the photographer provides us with opposing pairs: the destructive and the constructive, the worrying and the consoling, darkness and light."

–  Excerpts from the foreword by Jenny Maria Nilsson, Writer.

Lotta Törnroth is interested by the power of the sea and the relation between man and the sea. Photography, text and sculpture form a story about the potential catastrophe at sea. What happens within us, just waiting for it to happen and the effect it has after the catastrophe has happened. Being torn between hope and despair, but also the beauty of not giving up. The work is a three-part story including photographs and essays.

This fictive story takes place in a store where the customers are being helped over the counter. The employees organize the goods for the customers, using utilities like carts and packing lists. At first sight it might look rigid, but in the encounters between the customers and employees, there are humorous and poetic elements. The store exists as a closed space with its own rules and specific knowledge, but sometimes another reality cuts through, a political and social spark that makes everything in the store appear in a new way.

By Agnes Thor (Click to view)

Revisiting places that once held a magical element during her childhood, Thor uses her elegant attention to light and detail to provide a visual narrative that draws the viewer into a place where time has stopped and all that remains is the wistful vision she has presented. With a beautifully tragic foreword by the artist, the scene is set for the viewer to explore the four sections of images. Through her pairing of images, a true sense of place is formed where the viewer can’t help but form an attachment to it’s structures, objects, and landscapes.

Shooting over the course of eight years, it is also a document of time and seasons passing, and a meditation over the Swedish landscape.
