Abstract or Description:

Moments come and go, continuously building and developing a stream of impressions and sensory experiences. Is there an understanding of themselves and their own place in the world about these ideas, experiences and memoirs? Through her paintings, Usva Seregina explores important, colorful memories; moments that have defined her awareness and consciousness. These moments may seem ordinary and everyday but are extremely powerful and influential. How do different moments define our self? Why do some of the experiences remain with us as important pillars of understanding? How do they affect our views on society and the world? Are the memories even intact or truthful? Does it matter if their power remains?

Where does the power of senses and memories come to an end? Death is an experience that awaits us all, but also a topic that we have abandoned in modern society. Death has become a taboo subject we want to forget and avoid. Anni Ekström examines death as an everyday and earthly theme through her sculptures. She wants to understand death as part of life and bring it closer to us. Why do we live so far away from an issue that connects us all? Is death really so different from life? Is it really so scary? Could we not approach this mystical, distant subject more archaically?

The paintings and sculptures create a conversation among one another. Past and future experiences collide; both always transformative, unstable, non-permanent.
