Lotta Hannerz: Witness Marks 
Galerie Forsblom Stockholm
September 28–October 28, 2018
Opening in the presence of the artist, September 27, 5–7pm


Amidst antique machines and enigmatic cave paintings. Along the winding paths of consciousness and beside subterranean abodes, cognitive experiences collide with perceived sensations. The powers of the hemispheres shriek so loudly that they drown out the corpus callosum. In the work of Lotta Hannerz (b. 1968), the tendrils of introspection coil around uninterrupted attention to the surrounding world. In this reality, the factual and the fictitious have entered a form of symbiosis.

 

With a gently nostalgic tone, where witness and agent constantly change positions and incessantly move their marks, a place is conjured where the solid appears to be ethereal. Reviewing, mapping and cataloging. Systematization and dissection.

 

Hannerz’s art resists the limitations we are ascribed. It questions our intuitive experience of a world characterized by physical stability. As the works of Witness Marks interact, a space is created where even simultaneous events seem entirely possible. Perhaps we are tamed by illusory scales, deceptive rules and logical capers that allow us to sense an opening toward circular movements in space-time. Hannerz’s art points to a possible occurrence of alternative realities. With protractor and polygraph, with instruments that may not always be fully reliable, or which may measure something other than what we believe we are studying, she exposes mysteries packaged in reality’s illusions.

 

Lotta Hannerz studied at Konstfack-University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, Stockholm (1989–1993) and at the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm (2001–2002). Her work has been shown in a number of solo exhibitions in Sweden and elsewhere in Europe. She has also participated in several group shows, including Galerie Papillon, Paris (2018) and Mjellby Art Museum, Halmstad (2012). Hannerz’s work is represented in collections at institutions such as the Malmö Art Museum, Malmö, Moderna museet, Stockholm, Gothenburg Museum of Art, Gothenburg, Sweden and the Bonn Museum of Modern Art, Bonn, Germany. Hannerz has been awarded several grants, such as the Hans and Desy Viksten Grant (2014), and the Résidence Cité internationale des Arts studio award, Paris (2005–2007).
