A conversation in exhibition The Monument, Sept. 20, 6.00 PM

You are welcome to a conversation in Ulf Lundin’s exhibition The Monument at the gallery. The Monument presents a photgraphic project based upon the area around Högdalstoppen, south of Stockholm, where Ulf Lundin has spent much time in recent years. The photographs depict a specific place but are also loaded with an underlying narrative dealing with dreams and reality. In the conversation artist Ulf Lundin, the writer Stefan Lindberg and the journalist Per Wirtén looks at the place from their different perspectives.

Monumentet / The Monument, Ulf Lundin, Galleri Magnus Karlsson, Stockholm, Sweden

We are pleased to present Ulf Lundin’s seventh solo exhibition at the gallery: The Monument. The exhibition presents a photographic project based on the area around Högdalstopparna, south of Stockholm, where Ulf Lundin has spent much time in recent years. The photographs depict a specific place but are also loaded with an underlying narrative dealing with dreams and reality. Although beautiful, the pictures possess an intensity and darkness that relates to the society we live in. The project is also the subject of a new book that is published in conjunction with the exhibition.

Ulf Lundin, Clarion Hotel Stockholm, Sweden

From Press Release (in Swedish only):

Ulf Lundin är utbildad stillbildsfotograf och jobbar idag både med fotografi och video. I 5–9 har Lundin satt samman en mängd fotografier och videoklipp i ett kollage som utgör videoverket. Verket speglar det vardagliga arbetet på ett kontor där det egentliga porträtten av kontorsarbetarna inte är huvudsaken. Istället vill Lundin fråga åskådaren: “Hur lever vi våra liv?”

Ulf Lundin, Malmö Fotobiennal, Sweden

In the video 5-9 we’re following the everyday doings in a office building in the Stockholm area. The piece is shot secretly from the outside during dark hours. Lundin has gathered material during several weeks. That material is put together digitally so that the result is 27 minutes long unbroken dolly shot. The result is a condensed reality where time and space has been manipulated. Lundin is not really interested in the office workers that are portrayed in 5-9. They represent all of us and our gaze is turned towards ourselves. How do we choose to live our lives?

Ulf Lundin, Hasselblad Center, Göteborg, Sweden

Från Pressrelease:

Sedan mitten av 1800-talet har fotografin varit ett redskap för att definiera och kontrollera subjekt, men även bekräfta och synliggöra sällan skådade miljöer och individer. Urvalet av verk från Hasselbladstiftelsens samling i Framing Bodies belyser detta. Utställningen tematiserar olika fotografiska inramningar av kroppen utifrån perspektiven: övervakning; normöverskridning; arbete och kolonialt förtryck.

Ulf Lundin, Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt, Germany

They are hunters who themselves become prey. In 1960, Federico Fellini erected a questionable cinematic memorial to them in his famous film “La Dolce Vita.” He created the character of the “paparazzo,” the tabloid photographer whose name can be read as a combination of the words “pappatace” (sand fly) and “ragazzo” (boy). The paparazzo’s raison d'être: the covert following and stalking of more or less well-known personages with the aim of publishing exclusive photos of supposedly secret and personal situations.
