>unknown – Per Hüttner at Zendai Contemporary Art Exhibition Hall

Co-curated by Li Xiaofei and Alessandra Sandrolini

Within his artistic body of work, Per Hüttner engages in an aesthetic and existential quest for personal freedom and its ensuing frictions. To pursue this liberation, he looks for ways to renegotiate the relationships between the individual and the collective, in the social, political and spiritual spheres, and to push further the boundaries of human experience and knowledge.

For this sculptural installation, the artist creates a liquid space where moving images and a select number of objects become a part of a complex system of interconnected ideas.

Four videos form the hub of the exhibition and show mysterious rituals enacted by various characters. The films reveal an intimate and sensual love for the secret knowledge hidden in nature and culture. The characters are engaged in the poetic act of eating books or fruits of peculiar flowers. Even though they are acted by different actors, it seems that we pry into the life of the same human subject. The images show mundane situations that have been shifted ever so slight to reveal the vastness of the unknown in our everyday experience. Simply and wisely, the artist invites the viewer to break the subtle frame of reality and limited illusion and to embrace the unknown.

Wednesday 8th of December at 6 pm
How can we think of artistic labour in a time when an essential part of the labour market is defined as creative and artistic? Josefine Wikström is a freelancing curator and writer based in London where she recently finished an MA in Philosophy at Middlesex University. Together with art critic Fredrik Svensk she will discuss the difference between productive and artistic labour.

The talk is the first part of the events program Art After Work which takes place in relation to the exhibition Everything Under Heaven is Total Chaos by the Swedish artists International Festival.
The talk will take place in English.
