Surrealistisk koreografi för stålrörsstolar
Carl Hammoud har länge fascinerats av människotomma interiörer och bröten av möbler. Hans välavvägda ljussättning ger målningarna en speciell laddning.
Ahead of his awaited new solo exhibition at Galleri Magnus Karlsson, C-print contributor Carolina Bergquist sits down with painter Carl Hammoud in his studio for a conversation about how a chance encounter with film director Ruben Östlund led to revisiting a past work of his own which in turn lays out the framework of his entire new exhibition. Moreoever, Carl addresses the notion of chaos which appears omnipresent and is commonly attributed to large parts of Carl's body of work.
Do you want me to take my shoes off?
We have the pleasure of presenting STUMBLE, Carl Hammoud’s fifth solo exhibition at the Gallery. The exhibition comprises a group of paintings, all of which revisit a motif from Carl Hammoud’s oeuvre – the pile of chairs in his painting The Protest from 2013.

From the pressrelease (in Swedish only):
We are pleased to announce this summer’s exhibition at Hellvi Kännungs, Gotland. The rebuilt limestone barn located on northeastern Gotland functions as Galleri Magnus Karlsson’s project space during summertime and this year marks our fifth consecutive presence throughout the month of July. This year’s exhibition, With My Back to the World, has been curated in collaboration with gallery artist Carl Hammoud, who also participates in the exhibition with Mette Björnberg, Ann Edholm and Bella Rune.
Lora Reynolds is pleased to announce The Arrangement of Separate Elements, a project room exhibition of new paintings, watercolors, and drawings by Carl Hammoud. This is the artist’s second solo presentation at Lora Reynolds Gallery.
This body of work depicts objects most of us take for granted: books, clothing, a stack of hats, a pair of glasses. As with all of his work, Hammoud renders the imagery precisely and illusionistically, leaving little trace of his own hand in his trademark palette of cool blues and grays.
Word Bites Picture is an ongoing project by Friend & Colleague, launched at the Storefront For Art & Architecture in 2013. Contemporary artists, selected on grounds of pure subjective preference, are asked to submit an artwork of their choice, without comment or background story. In response to the artwork, Katya writes a 500-word fiction, resulting in a ‘caption’ that does little to clarify the artwork, but might capture something that’s otherwise difficult to articulate, like atmosphere or disposition.
Some of the participating artists:
Jens Fänge, Tuija Lindström, Peter Johansson, Annica Karlsson Rixon, Jacob Dahlgren, Andreas Eriksson, Lotta Hannerz, Ann Eringstam, Jeff Olsson, Maria Miesenberger, Eva Klasson, Gerry Johansson, Lovisa Ringborg, Julia Peirone, Dana Sederowsky, Helene Billgren, Patrik Andine, Omid Delafrouz, Leif Elggren, Lotta Antonsson, Carl Hammoud, Annika von Hausswolff, Carl Michael von Hausswolff, Tomas Lundgren & Maria Johansson.

From Press Release:
Gallery Baton is pleased to present Diplopia, an exhibition introducing new works by Swedish artists Jens Fänge and Carl Hammoud.
Diplopia is the technical term for double vision; the simultaneous perception of two images. The title refers to the common denominators in the works of Fänge/Hammoud, such as the usage of two (or more) images, the double exposure of objects, or simply the equivocal nature of their works - where one interpretation is as true as another.
Galleri Magnus Karlsson is proud to announce it's participation at The Frieze Art Fair for the eighth consecutive year.
