Curator guided tour of “Lars Englund – Under Construction” and “Adèle Essle Zeiss – Statolit”

Guided tour

18.2 2023


Welcome to join a guided tour of the newly opened exhibition “Lars Englund – Under Construction”, and the installation and performance work “Statolit” by Adèle Essle Zeiss. The tour is led by Curator and Director of Moderna Museet Malmö, Elisabeth Millqvist.

Lars Englund’s art is characterized by exploration and could be described as “work in progress.” Englund has collaborated with cement and rubber factories, bases his work on machine parts and industrial materials, changes scale from model to monumental, and finds inspiration in subways and Baroque architecture alike. This exhibition spans from paintings Englund made the early 1950s that have rarely been shown to sculptures from the 2000s. Adèle Essle Zeiss “Statolit” is an installation and performance for three dancers that will be performed several times throughout the exhibition period. “Statolit” is shown here as a counterpart to the Lars Englund exhibition. A dialogue across generations is established in the museum between different artists with an interest in movement and balance.
