Vita Kuben, Spring 2013
Vita Kuben's spring programme has been designed by Malmö artist, author and musician Leif Holmstrand, www.leifholmstrand.se
Holmstrand had this to say about the spring exhibitions:
"We will see three exhibitions that are the result of five active and inquisitive artistic careers. With a poetic touch, they raise issues that examine commonly held views on norms, identity and feminism."
GAMES AND REGULATIONS
18.1–16.2 Jenny Grönvall & Line Skywalker Karlström
22.2–30.3 Ia Neumüller & Majd Abdel Hamid
5.4–1.5 Yuki Okumura
Jenny Grönvall & Line Skywalker Karlström
Jenny Grönvall creates charged concoctions from performance, video and other genres. Her art challenges social rules, balances of power, and relationships between aesthetics and status. Line Skywalker Karlström often works with physical objects, video and social action with the intention of sabotaging and reconstructing our concepts of power and gender.
Ia Neumüller & Majd Abdel Hamid
Ia Neumüller's works often focus on physical change processes, perceptions of reality and small absurdities. Her work has been almost exclusively exhibited outside of the artistic world. Palestinian Majd Abdel Hamid works with embroidery, graffiti, sculpture, photographs, video and political concepts that often centre around themes of nationality and conflict analysis.
Yuki, who was born in Japan, stages linguistic malfunctions in contexts such as real-life translation work, for example. Film, performance, writing and lectures are his means of artistic expression. The results are often beautiful, disconcerting and humorous.
