Review of Mette Björnberg’s solo exhibition Power Play in Blouin Artinfo

Review of Power Play by Blouin Artinfo, October 23, 2017

The Power of Female: Mette Björnberg at Galleri Magnus Karlsson, Stockholm

The female sex and its place in politics is the subject of the latest exhibition “Power Play” at the Galleri Magnus Karlsson. Located in Stockholm the gallery welcomes Mette Björnberg for her fifth exhibition with the gallery, in which her sculptures analyse recent political issues concerning the female sex.

Mette Björnberg, Power Play, Galleri Magnus Karlsson

We are pleased to present Mette Björnberg’s fifth solo exhibition at Galleri Magnus Karlsson. Power Play presents new sculptures and objects in painted wood, textile and mixed media. The exhibition title recurs as the title for a series of nine wall objects, Power Play (no. 1–9), that centres around the female sex. The works have emerged as a reaction to current international politics and events, rather than from a personal story. Mette Björnberg reflects back on a picture of an old Polish woman from a demonstration for abortion rights that had a strong impact on her.

Vi har byggt upp ett antal miljöer tillsammans med våra samarbetspartners - arkitekter, inredare och leverantörer och låtit konsten ta plats.

Mette Björnberg, Recipient of the Art Prize 2015 of the Ann Wolff Foundation

The Art Prize 2015 of the Ann Wolff Foundation is rewarded to Mette Björnberg!


From press release:
The Ann Wolff Foundation was established as a non-profit-foundation in Berlin, Germany, in 2008.

A donation of works by Ann Wolff formes the basis of the foundation. The main goal is to promote art and culture with a focus on glass. Another, not less valuable, aspect is to enable contemporary artists to experiment with the versatile nature of glass for their first time and to incorporate it into their work. This is done by an art prize.

Med ryggen mot världen / With My Back to the World, Hellvi Kännungs, Gotland 4.7–2.8 2015

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.

Mette Björnberg, Market Space, Liljevalchs, Stockholm, Sweden

We also have the pleasure to present Before it all falls I & II, two sculptures by Mette Björnberg. The sculptures are displayed during Market Art Fair, Stockholm, in the section Market Space.

Mette Björnberg presents a pair of towering balancing sculptures which together serve as an allegory of the never-ending balancing game that is life.
Running recurrently in Mette Björnberg’s sculptural body of work, spanning over close to twenty years is the quality of presenting more than initially meets the eye.

Time Waits for Us, Galleri Magnus Karlsson

Galleri Magnus Karlsson is pleased to announce a group exhibition that will be on display throughout the summer. In conjunction with the inauguration of Nationalmuseum’s temporary space with the exhibition Carl Larsson - Friends and Enemies in our building (The Royal Academy of Fine Arts), we will show Time Waits for Us . This exhibition presents new works by all of our gallery artists.

Mette Björnberg, Andrum / Breathing Space, Galleri Magnus Karlsson

Galleri Magnus Karlsson is pleased to present Mette Björnberg’s fourth solo exhibition in the gallery. Breathing Space presents sculptures and objects in painted wood, textile and mixed media from the past two years.

Mette Björnberg’s humble but quirky sculptures depicts different stages in life, both joys and hardships. Emotional states translated into colour and shape. It may be an isolated event or perhaps a longer phase in life that has been stripped and condensed, to reach a carefully considered articulation.
