From Review in Helsingborgs Dagblad by Johanna Gredfors Ottesen (in Swedish only):
Cries and Whispers is a group exhibition presenting Swedish contemporary painting and sculpture. Here, eight artists, born in the 60s, 70s and 80s, are invited to represent a figurative art movement that has received great attention in Sweden and internationally. The title, borrowed from Ingmar Bergman’s film Cries and Whispers from 1972, echoes in the exhibition. There is a strong relationship between these artists, but also crucial differences in their approach. Both the intimate, vulnerable whispers and the distant, powerful cries can be traced.
We are pleased to present Below the Horizon, an exhibition with new works by Susanne Johansson, Johanna Karlsson and Petra Lindholm. The exhibition has been developed through a long dialogue between the artists. The works included resonate with each other and bring up mutual investigations despite different expressions and techniques. Nature is both the setting and plays the lead part in the practice of these three artists.
Galleri Magnus Karlsson has partnered with Hotel le Manoir in Banyuls-sur-Mer, France. We will make on-site exhibitions with gallery artists and also work towards an exchange between the artists, guests of the hotel and the local cultural scene. The first exhibition presents more than 30 works by 16 of the gallery’s artists.The works are not selected on the basis of a special theme, but there are a number connections to the geographical location, the building and the local nature and culture.

From Press Release: (in swedish)
Galleri Magnus Karlsson har glädjen att presentera utställningen Utan Söm och Socka på Hellvi Kännungs, Gotland. Hellvi Kännungs är galleriets projektrum sommartid och öppnade förra året med utställningen Pudelns Hjärna sammanställd av Jens Fänge. Tanken med projektrummet är att skapa förutsättningar för oväntade möten och uppmuntra nya samarbeten och idéer.
Johanna Karlsson has in her drawings and sculptures examined nature from a nearly microscopically low angle. The works richness of detail and careful execution give the simple motives – roots, branches of trees and other vegitation – new meaning.
