The project Wunderkammer, an international curatorial programme of satellite exhibitions across Sweden, Thailand, South Korea and the U.K. featuring the work of 44 GSA graduates.
Vertical Stance exhibits works of the artists who strongly convey their own location, positions and their relations within the world. The works displayed are of organic and natural manners, in either metaphorical or literal sense. They take forms from nature, harmonizing them with the environment of their location and then project them into artistic choices and expressions. The collaboration of local artists from Sweden and South Korea shows the universal stubbornness and obstinacy in humans to maintain one’s identity throughout different locations and lives. The paintings alluding to the Swedish forest hanging on the walls embrace the arrival of the installation from Korea. Here, we witness the meeting of a harmonious nature; in which all meet with their beautiful individuality and a strong stance of their own, a firm vertical stance walking through the world.
