The Flow of Everything

Philip Dufva, Maria Hedlund and Eva Löfdahl

“I look at everything that passes my eyes and test it against a need”.

The quote above, like the title of the exhibition, is taken from Eva Löfdahl – an artist who works in many different materials and techniques, always with the specific need of this particular work as a starting point – rather than an existing idea, look or method. The result is therefore unexpected rather than predictable.

Her work challenges our preconceptions, what we assume we know, and thus turns our habits of perception upside down.

In this summer’s group exhibition at Marabouparken konsthall – The Flow of Everything – we have gathered three artists from different generations who we think share this approach. They express it in different ways and their artistic practices differ, but there is a common approach that deals with something fundamental in the function of art, what it actually does, which the exhibition wants to highlight rather than a content-related theme.

It is in the common space, the space around the objects, that contact surfaces and relationships between things arise. It is there that the exhibition’s artists, and by extension the exhibition as a whole, operate and emerge. It is where meanings are created.
