On power, pain and... ...when I say power, I am not only thinking of the power of the state and of its institutions but also of the hundreds of different powers that become intertwined, coming from different sides.

Luc Paradis at Parisian Laundry

Comprised of a collection of paintings, sculptures and works on paper, Simultaneous Displays by Luc Paradis playfully addresses the process of staging, as well as the viewer's experience in relation to what is displayed.

Eija-Liisa Ahtila’s “Studies on the Ecology of Drama 1”
GALLERI CHARLOTTE LUND, Stockholm
Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Studies on the Ecology of Drama 1, 2014.

Alas, Eija-Liisa Ahtila’s accomplished video installation at Galleri Charlotte Lund in Stockholm does not save the world, nor... continue reading

The woman appears put down, but you get the feeling that’s... continue reading
