Conny Karlsson Lundgren
Conny Karlsson Lundgren’s video work “Our Trip to France (Mont des Tantes)” depicts the struggle for homosexuals’ freedoms and rights. In the video work, young activists today read the travelogue written by the earlier generation in 1977. The film grows into a touching document about belonging and learning to accept oneself by accepting others.

Leif Holmstrand’s physical works are often drawn from his performative practice. The sculpture “Anadyomene” is, for example, based on the performance “Berlin Magic Model Project / Prostitution and Other Activities”. Leif Holmstrand’s rich artistic and literary practice is a diverse world. One peopled by figures of transgressive gender identities who, with all their senses vibrating, are exploring the human condition and the subversive power of culture.

In her practice, Iris Smeds works with performance, film and objects. The value of art and the marketability of identities are recurring subjects, and her works are often blended with absurd humour. The film “The Average” is a comment on the individualism that has emerged alongside the decline of the welfare state. “0-9 Bye (a bug’s life)” is a sculpted cloak in pink satin marked with the numbers 0 to 9. It can be read as an allegory of life’s movement towards death, or simply as numerals. The mantle reminds us of the butterfly that has reached life’s climax after the pupa phase.
