Refresh: Swedish Photography Gallery Changes Name

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, July 8, 2014
AIPAD Member Gallery Swedish Photography has announced a name change to Grundemark Nilsson Gallery.  This fall they will announce a new location opening, so meantime Grundemark Nilsson Gallery invites patrons to visit their showroom in the Kopenickerstrasse 126, 10179 Berlin. 

Grundemark Nilsson Gallery is dedicated to exposing classic as well as contemporary photography by Swedish artists.  An annual catalogue is produced each year which highlights the 5-6 exhibitions from the season.  The gallery's mission is to give international platform to Swedish artists; their diverse portfolio gives particular focus to the new generation of contemporary photo-based artists and also works to solidify the careers of more renowned masters, including Christer Stromholm, Dawid or Tuija Lindstrom.  The gallery also engages in a broad-scope of activities, including international art fairs, book releases, panel discussions, and artists talks.

Artist's Exhibition & Book Release: Henrik Isaksson Garnell at Grundemark Nilsson Gallery

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, May 13, 2014
Ephemera

Exhibition Dates:
May 17 - July 5

Opening & book release:  Friday May 16
7:00 - 9:00 pm

The exhibition will be opened by Bill Kouwenhoven, International Editor and Author

This exhibition celebrates the new work of Henrik Isaksson Garnell, Ephemera, and the newly released book of earlier work Dissonance; it is  his second show with the gallery.  The work engages layered histories of the still-life genre and challenges the validity of photographic representation.  Garnell constructs his images.  They meld the sculptural, the scientific, and the artistic.  Because they so convincingly suspend our belief, they weave their own reality and become contemporary parallels to such inventions as the "Peking Man" or work by Joan Fontcuberta.  Garnell draws components in part from from his surroundings in a forest near his Stockholm home.   He collects botanical samples and animal bones; these become meshed with wires, chords, plugs, batteries, lights, and other scientific or mechanical elements.  Hybrid forms emerge and celebrate a perfect dissonance.  The constructed forms morph before our eyes.  Depending on the viewer or the work we may at first percieve the whole and try to identify a form such as a face, a sea creature, a brain or larvae, even unidentifiable scientific device then move deeper to inspect the component elements.  Others among us may first see the parts then reconstruct an invented whole from Gernell's incorporated pieces.  Either way there is no denying these images; they are strange and fascinating and sit against black ground like specimens.  They satisfy our curiosity and are both distinctly believable and knowingly unbelievable.
