About

Lisa Torell’s exhibition scrutinises components of the welfare state. The works reveal how care and attention, indifference and neglect are manifested materially in and through our urban and public spaces. It is as if she is asking herself: What is it that makes a society a shared space and a society a society?

With a close examination on site, working day and night, Lisa Torell discovers signs of care and consideration, and a lack of the same. She is the body and the eye, making her discoveries simultaneously with the viewer. Bit by bit, society and systems are laid bare, in paving stones, detritus and imprints.

For more than a decade, the artist Lisa Torell has focused her artistic practice on public and semi-public spaces. She uses a site-specific approach to enter into close dialogue with chosen places and situations, individuals, population and society. At Marabouparken works made between 2015 and 2019, for places in Istanbul, Norrköping, Småland, Gdansk, Sundbyberg, Tromsø och Venice, are shown in a large-scale spatial installation.
