Poster - KV1

Exhibition Text

In his project at StudyForArtPlatform, Gabriel Karlsson shows an installation where vertical steel bars hold up objects in the ceiling. The title of the work, Untitled (Cumulus), refers to the fluffy cloud in which we humans often see objects and figurations. The name derives from the Latin cumulus, meaning heap or pile. The objects, stuck in the ceiling are fragmented parts of a fossilized heel bone of a woolly mammoth, an object that has been excavated from the ground. The exhibition proposes a spatial reversal of the exhibition space, and at the same time a shift in the meanings of the objects presented.

Gabriel Karlsson

Gabriel Karlsson´s practice deals with the question how as much as what. His sculptures combine a slow and traditional craftsmanship with a conceptual thinking that makes the viewer reflect on the sculpture and the ability of the objects to exist in the in-between of an interior and an exterior space. Karlsson refers to his sculptures as thought objects.
