About the event

Vernissage date: 20.10.22

Artists

Emilia Olofsdotter Sundqvist

Emilia Sundqvist, born 1993 in Uppsala, lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.

Sundqvist works with textile stuffed sculptures with large, carefully sewn visible stitches.

The material is an important part of her work and there is a soft sassiness in everything she does.

Sundqvist's work explores the compulsions and doubts of adulthood in such a way that these can be seen and experienced in a more playful and forgiving way.

William Reed

William Reed (b.1991) is currently in the second year of the Master's program in liberal arts at Konstfack. He has had a solo exhibition at REDAN Galleri in Malmö and exhibited at gallery Thomassen in Gothenburg, Riche, Trädgården, Affordable Art Fair and at WAY gallery earlier this year.

In his artistic practice, he works explosively with painting where elements of mythological and contemporary concepts and motifs meet and create a new context. A visual narrative that represents a desolate rising visualization of the present in its colorfully violent yet magical reality.

William Reed's combination of exuberant colors, playfulness and a hint of obscurity seems to create a winning concept where new works from the artist do not seem to see an end. William is currently a master's student at Konstfack and creates works with clear historical and pop cultural references from Baroque to Disney. All of William's works feel different and unique but at the same time coherent and a clarity that a work comes from him. His morbidly playful presence is present in all works.

William and Emilia work with different materials and expressions but have something obvious in common, perhaps they are that both artists have the feeling to see the cruel fairy tales in reality and through image and form express this in a delightful way. In pcalled no tear Bambiwe see examples of how the artists' works come together in a coherent exhibition where darkness and light are mixed into a happy/sad daydream.

Artists

Emilia Olofsdotter Sundqvist

Emilia Sundqvist, b.1993 in Uppsala, lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.

Sundqvist creates stuffed figurative sculptures with visible handmade stitches. The material is an essential aspect for her work and there is a pattern of white fuzzy softness in everything she does.

Sundqvist's works explore the doubts and demands of adulthood with a playful and humorous approach, where longing and recognition to childhood's simplified declarations of love, beauty, and nature can be a lovely getaway.
