Fabian Bergmark Näsman - Poster 1 - Key Visual 1

Exhibition Text

There’s this cavernous place, a natural void. Calm, ancient, empty with potential. Two beings live here, call it home. Do you wanna go? This is about finding something, connecting the dots… Like constellations in the night sky or the evolution of slow gooey drip to stalactite. Glow or grow both play with energy, molecules bonding and spawning a solar flare. 

Derived from the idea of recursion and hybridization, Fabian Bergmark Näsman has developed a unique artistic process where he casts sculptures from one mold to create an original piece each time through dissection and reconstruction. The results are abstract, and have thus been seen as an exploration of formal and academic queries. In Bergmark Näsman’s latest installation, ”Amalgamate", he juxtaposes an abstract sculpture with a new kind of sculpture — one which is more figurative. This new work conjures questions about perception: How do we perceive the abstract sculpture now? How do we understand things according to their context or environment? And (how) can an object, or a subject, survive the ever changing discourses where lines are constantly redrawn?
