Street Gallery: a new exhibition of breakthrough artists

Street Gallery is a street-based art exhibition in Solna Business Park. The district is undergoing numerous changes, both large and small. Surprising and unexpected aspects of everyday life that encourage vitality in the spaces between buildings, wellbeing and a sense of security. The exhibition currently showing is ‘Stroissmüller’ curated by Ilja Karilampi/@trekronorculture.

Featuring the work of Renaud Jerez, Lap-See-Lam, Tore Wallert, Sophie Gogl, Hélène Fauquet, Matilda Tjäder, Gustav Wideberg, Ivo Kiuskalaas, Léo Bachiri Wadimoff, Elis Eriksson and Ira Shalit.

Elis Eriksson

Elis Eriksson (1906–2006, Stockholm) was a Swedish artist, designer and pioneer who, in his constant quest for knowledge, created playful ‘systems’ through painting, collage and drawing. The seemingly non-stop stream of wordplay and ideas was inspired by contemporary thinkers such as Deleuze and Guattari. The importance of observing his images today seems more urgent that ever, drawing inspiration from the humour and drive that his life’s work contains. The exhibited silver-foil picture is a sort of blueprint and call to cut it up, and fold it into a model.

Gustav Wideberg

Gustav Wideberg (1984, Gothenburg) lives and works in Amsterdam, but is in constant physical and creative motion. His intelligent and tactile output often contains neo-psychedelic elements; impressions of a metropolitan environment, tags, melted reflective fabric from Deliveroo jackets, and tribal shapes, creating layers of paint, like a pressure-washed wall. Constantly in search of material to transform, he scans his surroundings for aesthetic potential. Wideberg has had recent imprints at Nomad Gothenburg, Kiasma Helsinki and Ellen de Bruijne Projects in Amsterdam.

Hélène Fauquet

Hélène Fauquet (1989, Saint-Saulve, lives in Vienna) has explored the range of mirrors and frames that people sell through Austrian auction sites. The artwork is a found photo printed on Dibond, knowingly keeping the original low quality. In a recent gallery exhibition at Meyer Keiner in Vienna Fauquet hung a group of pictures of decorated glass windows, printed on simple wooden panels. The digital dust that remains on the concave bubbles lining the mirror frame forms an anonymous reflection of the renaissance, much like Jan van Eyck's 15th century experiments, and speak of our own relationship with online imagery.

Ira Shalit

Ira Shalit (1989, Petah Tikva) is an artist exploring the formats of drawing and collaboration and their role of infusing ideas. A bird that appears to be sitting in a cage below the caption ‘Marvellous Vacation’ is a humorous depiction of Ira’s most recent period, in which he created a series of digital drawings reminiscent of newspaper cartoon strips. Previous projects in places such as Frankfurt have also had an open format, in which he allows the public to contribute to his art.

Ivo Kiuskalaas

Ivo Kiuskalaas (1986, Stockholm) has a multifaceted background as lighting/disco technician and aluminium expert, and his installation explores the reflection of the artwork in which we are obliged to look closer to view the reflection of the original. Much like the idea of Plato’s Cave, where the spectator sees a silhouette believing this to be complete reality, Ivo's practice invites us to experience alternative ways of perception, surface and light effects.

Lap-See Lam

Lap-See Lam’s (1990, Stockholm) artwork is engraved with patterns from 3D scans of visitors in familiar Chinese restaurants, where passers-by created the ‘lines’ of movement. Using virtual reality, 3D, sound and sculpture, her art deals with the narratives of urban spaces, family mythology, and belonging. She often recreates moments or interiors via private memories of the Cantonese diaspora in Sweden, and recently showed a poetic installation at Galerie Nordenhake in Stockholm.

Léo Bachiri Wadimoff

Leo Bachiri Wadimoff (1989, Geneva) has a background in the grassroots milieu in French-speaking Switzerland and was part of the Marbriers 4 project space in Geneva for several years. His interest lies in how certain images and sentences indicate trust, but the message they contain are an illusion. His works of art, with vinyl motifs and text placed directly over faded images, provide food for thought, where the commonplace design itself becomes a symbol for, or a tribute to, lack of productivity.

Matilda Tjäder

Matilda Tjäder’s (1989, Malmö, lives in London) performances and text-based work depicts the gap between reality and fiction. Using artistic research and her voice, she takes us on a journey through syntax and academic formats. Her practice borrows from her background in literature, turning deep thoughts into different types of presentations, complete with headset and slogans on the wall.

Renaud Jerez

Renaud Jerez (1982, Narbonne, lives in Paris) is one of France's most interesting artists active internationally, and often produces large-scale alternative worlds he builds from colourful processed material. Like a cartoon version of ‘Avatar’ with snowboard boots, he creates a futuristic vision or starting point; a sculptural scenario skilfully saturated with images and objects at an almost factory-like pace. Often, the site-specific environments contain expectation or an element of performance.

Sophie Gogl

Sophie Gogl (1992, Kitzbühel) transforms material from stock image services and the internet into skilful and humorous paintings and objects where she twists cropping, dimension and context. An image of Anna Sorokin circulating in the gossip press (the New York scammer who was arrested for traveling and staying at luxury hotels at other people’s expense) has, for example, become a vague icon or anti-hero in Gogl’s art. In a Germanic tradition following painters like Merlin Carpenter or Elizabeth Peyton, she creates direct images that happen to reflect our time, such as the 2019 work of a grinning toilet roll.

Tore Wallert

Tore Wallert (1985, Stockholm) creates types of performatively charged sculptural situations with a high level of craftsmanship and anti-aesthetic stylism. Over the past year he has toured Europe with a dance and performance group in which his involvement has resulted in a number of interesting images and icons. For several years he also explored these types of images printed on aluminium and in installations, which together tell a story about friends, process, and Europe today from the margins
