Marie-Louise Ekman

17.6 – 17.9 2017

Stockholm

See the Swedish artist Marie-Louise Ekman in a major solo exhibition, presenting a large series of recent paintings, along with some 200 works from the late 1960s and onwards.

In her idiosyncratic imagery, Ekman often repeats a set of characters in scenes where relationships and roles gradually shift, and the theatre is a recurring metaphor. The pictures, some based on personal experience, expose the absurdity of everyday life and undermine social constructions. This is the first presentation since 1998 of her entire oeuvre. And, like Marie-Louise Ekman herself alternates between art, theatre and film, allowing one to inform the other, the artist’s films and works for the stage will be included as essential parts of the exhibition.
