On show at Haninge konsthall 28/1 - 19/3 2023. Exhibited at celsius projects, Malmö and another version inaugurated the new art platform CPR² in Brooklyn in 2022.
Dear swarm-I, a room swarming of we-me-s is an installed a text piece. It forms a room with large papers to read. How does one read their way through a room? Paper and documents carry different meanings in our lives, here the reading itself becomes a way of tracing and connecting intentions. Large amounts of paper pass through our hands: agreements, letters, instructions, notes, books. The texts in the exhibition Dear swarm-I, a room swarming of we-me-s have been written by the artist and suggest various exchanges between subject and subjects and situations.
It's about how one is created in inspiration of and in friction with others - people, phenomena and things. Paper as a material is affected by handling, if it breaks a fold is imprinted. How the light falls over the surface tells about fibers, roughness and can create transparency. The papers in Dear swarm-I, a room swarming of we-me-s have hand-printed text and come out of a year's ongoing printing process.
