andreas gedin, drifting positions

Tags: , ,

Opening Thursday 23 April 17–20

Andreas Gedin’s exhibition Drifting Positions is presented at Cecilia Hillström Gallery starting April 23. It includes sculpture, objects and video. The exhibition deals with subjects such as crossing and establishing borders, exclusion, distance and desire. In the installation Driftwood, meaning is created through a combination of objects like a lantern and an empty box made of driftwood. It takes its starting point in the fact that the key to the city of Gothenburg is missing, but also in the history of an abandoned graveyard in a remote island and in the cunning practice of pirates.
