The exhibition at Moderna Museet is a retrospective, and yet exceedingly contemporary. Eva Löfdahl has created a comprehensive new work, an installation where tentacles, antennae and building modules branch out into a spatial structure incorporating earlier works. The installation is a site in itself and incorporates several temporal levels with varying content. Low-energy and dynamics. Universal and applied models. Development and proto-states.
Her observations of a variety of conditions are materialised in work categories such as souls, homes, war monuments and emblems. Her choice of material is primarily a choice of work method to formulate content. Eva Löfdahl has an unerring ability to express the enigmatic in permanent works. She is inscrutable yet perfectly straight-forward.
A richly illustrated catalogue will be published in conjunction with the exhibition, with essays by Jo Applin, art historian, Catharina Gabrielsson, architectural theorist, and the exhibition curator Ann-Sofi Noring, Moderna Museet. Graphic design by Anders Ljungman.
