The gallery Skala 1:1 is a collaboration between the venue Atalante and GoldDigger Productions and is housed in a storefront on Övre Husargatan 1, 2nd floor. The exhibition is only possible to view from the street. The curators Cecilia Suhaid Gustafsson and Sarah Schmidt wanted to present contemporary photography that is not tied to an institution that can be displayed in the public space.
Ann Eringstam 30 april – 11 juni
Since Ann Eringstam taking her Master’s degree at the School of Photography at Göteborg University in Sweden in 2006, She have dealt with the utopian picture of humanity portrayed in cinema. Eringstam art contrasts the idealized but unrealistic pictures of fictional reality with our own ideas of reality, norms and identities.
The photo series “In search of wonderland” (2011) is set in a magnificent landscape. The images are reminiscent the romantic nationalist genre. But then as in Alice in Wonderland, this series suddenly casts viewers into an eerily true unreality. What is “true” and what is “false” is irrelevant in these images. It’s not a question of romantic images of nature in the traditional sense. They convey something human, but elusively so.
