Monica Sjöö: The Great Cosmic Mother

Throughout her practice, the artist, activist, writer and eco-feminist Monica Sjöö (1938–2005) fought an uncompromising battle for freedom from all forms of oppression.

The exhibition “Monica Sjöö: The Great Cosmic Mother” is the first retrospective of Sjöö’s extensive corpus, where art, politics and spirituality are inseparable.

Photography of part of the exhibition area. In a purple room, the painting "Mother Earth in Pain, Her Trees Cut Down" is placed on narrow iron pipes. In the panting, a figure with a sun on the stomach is surrounded by chopped down trees in green on one side, and on the other a dark landscape with two black birds, one white bird and a cave.
