Marabouparken are pleased to present the first major exhibition with the Norwegian artist Eli Maria Lundgaard in Sweden, where both newly produced and older works are included. The exhibition An Inside within Another Inside is a teeming sculptural scene in which bodies – human and other –sound, intrude, transform and invite to both pleasure as well as unease.
Lundgaard is attracted to the uncontrollable nature; to situations and experiences that exist beyond the rational and decipherable. Her works can be described as a series of associations that challenge the boundaries between the visible and the invisible, the living and the non-living, the inner mental sphere and the outer common reality.
Is it possible to be in the exterior and simultaneously in the interior? Is what intrudes and breaks down at the same time what expands and enriches? Included in the exhibition are, among others, the video works Barbarian and A Home for Occupants. Both of the films examine organisms’ permeability and confluence. They portray an alienation of the familiar, in the gap that occurs between fact and fiction.
