Curated for
CHART

For CHART 2022, Galleri Cora Hillebrand will present works by Julia Selin and Viktor Rosdahl. Working primarily with large format images, Julia Selin’s works are best described as “night paintings”. In these pictures, darkness acts as a source, a presence and a well for the artist to draw upon. Viktor Rosdahl creates whispering and swarming works exploring an individual alienation rising from the glitch between utopia and reality, using both his own and found images and materials.

Julia Selin (SE)

Julia Selin’s paintings may be described as ”night paintings”: the darkness acts as a source, a presence, a well to draw upon. Selin’s works delve into a nocturnal state of mind, bringing visions into a bodily, sensual and emotional realm. The consistency of the paint is important; it is thick and transparent and slides over the canvas like a slippery jelly. The artist explores the division between the abject and the enchanting, paralleling blood and body fluids with rubies and yummy jams.

Julia Selin (b. 1986, Trollhättan; SE) lives and works in Malmö, Sweden. In recent years, Selin’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Galleri Flach (SE), Wanås Art (together with Haidar Mahdi; SE), Galleri Thomas Wallner (SE) The artist has also participated in group exhibitions at: Malmö Konsthall (SE), Celsius Projects (SE) and Ta-da space (DK).

Viktor Rosdahl (SE)

The art of Viktor Rosdahl comes to life in the interface between the power of imagination and reflective imaging. The mountains and landscapes in Rosdahl’s paintings reflects upon how life and reality can be seen without filters of time, history and language. Rosdahl seems to be asking us if we could think upon our space in time, as aliens just of the ship, with all its brutal and tender implications.

Viktor Rosdahl (b.1980) In recent years, he has exhibited at Galleri Wallner in Simris, Galleri Arnstedt in Båstad and Ljungberg muséum. Rosdahls work has been presented in group exhibitions at Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Bonniers konsthall and at Malmö konsthall to mention a few. Upcoming solo shows at Borstahusens konsthall Landskorna and at Galleri Cora Hillebrand Gothenburg. Rosdahl lives and works in Malmö, Sweden.
