Studio17 is proud to present Katarina Lundberg’s solo exhibition «Highway».
The artist writes about the exhibition:
The wind is always stronger around the highway and I sing while biking home. Above E4 south direction, yellow stains are quietly floating in the night. A roar rises behind the planking. The scraping sound from containers on the way somewhere fades away as the rear lights disappear.
Nearby, truck parts end their last shift on the streets of Västberga – an industrial area in Stockholm where several transportation firms are located. The pieces have been separated from the vehicle through a crash of some kind or maybe through a more silent discardment. Once again moved from one city to another, they are now on display in Stavanger.
Katarina Lundberg (f. 1986) lives and works in Stockholm. Machine-made materials – or places and objects taken from industry – have a prominent role in her work. She works on these materials through painting, sculpture and installation. Lundberg graduated with a BFA from Konstsfack, Stockholm (2017) and has since then participated in several group and solo exhibitions in Oslo, Stockholm, and Berlin.
The exhibition is supported by Nordisk Kulturkontakt.
The artist would like to thank: Mira Hjort and Per Klingberg
