Opening night Chronos

14.3 2024, 17:00— 20:00

Welcome to our opening night of Chronos: health, access and intimacy

Opening: Thursday, March 14 at 17.00—20.00

Doors open. Yalla Rinkeby will serve food and fika during the evening in the café.

Director Cecilia Widenheim says welcome, followed by a talk with the curator Olivia Plender and the present artists.

The exhibition takes its point of departure in the architectural practice of Matrix Feminist Design Co-operative– a British group of architects– who in the 1980s and 90s attempted to lay bare the assumptions built into the environments we inhabit. Who is the public space designed for?

Extending this line of thinking, the exhibited works address how lived experiences of disability, chronic illness and other forms of vulnerability present a challenge to normative societal structures; allowing us to question cultural ideas of self-sufficiency and productivity, develop new models for care and interdependence, and change our orientation to time.

Participating artists: Jessie Bullivant, Cecilia Germain, Melanie Gilligan, Goldin+Senneby, Jakob Jakobsen, Matrix Feminist Design Co-operative, Park McArthur, Olivia Plender, Ihra Lill Scharning, Vård och värde, and Constantina Zavitsanos

Curator: Olivia Plender in collaboration with Cecilia Widenheim, Tensta konsthall

The exhibition is produced with generous support from Jos Boys and Anne Thorne / Matrix, Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation and the Embassy of Canada to Sweden.
