Galerie Perrotin, Hong Kong is pleased to present Sister Feelings, the second exhibition dedicated to Swedish artist Jens Fänge, following The Hours Before at Galerie Perrotin, Paris last spring with a new series of 17 panel paintings (all 2016).
We have the pleasure to present Klara Kristalova’s fifth solo exhibition at the gallery. Her last major presentation in Stockholm was an acclaimed exhibition at Bonniers Konsthall in 2012. During the last ten years she has established herself as one of Sweden’s most successful artists with exhibitions in galleries and museums around the world.
This is my second exhibition at Galerie Clairefontaine and the title for this show is “It’s not that damned easy!”. I still paint with my fast, course paint stroke and in the rough way I always have done, I’m a kind of self-willed painter and I go my own way. Most of my paintings are influenced by my neighborhood and people and places I know very well. “It’s unbelievable how many odd people there are in this place” (Amandas Ong, Elephant Magazine, 2014). It’s easy to see my paintings as “simple”, but I always do my best to load them with some kind of intrinsic value.
From Pressrelease (in Swedish only):
Panama är ett sällskapsspel för hela familjen. Spelet går ut på att bedriva olika former av handel. Under spelet kommer deltagarna i kontakt med såväl lokal som internationell handel inom exempelvis olja, bomull, läkemedel och vapen. Spelet är inspirerat av bland annat Öyvind Fahlströms spel World trade Monopoly, men även av pensionsfonder, gymnastikskor, ekologisk tofu och Nato.
Panama, som har producerats i folkrepubliken Kina, har framtagits av Lars Arrhenius och Eric Ericson.
