Viktor Rosdahl: Self Portraits from Malmö
Jan 15 - Feb 15

Viktor Rosdahl’s exhibition is a love story that operates amongst rebels and field biologists, among house occupants and young parents, among freethinkers and misanthropists, among graffiti painters and municipal politicians. The past and the present stand shoulder to shoulder.

Rosdahl creates thight connections between art, myth, and politics. The starting point can be a utopian idea or the story within a found object. The paintings, which occasionally are developing into sculpture, offer art historical, socio-political, and ideological comments from a personal perspective.

Putting together fact and illusion, Rosdahl creates a kind of critical mythologies. With an emotional, passionate and poetic expression the images illustrate the human repression- politically, emotionally and bodily.

Viktor Rosdahl graduated from Konsthögskolan i Malmö in 2007 and has since participated in numerous exhibitions. Between 2007 and 2008 Rosdahl held a scholarship at IASPIS and has been awarded with Edstrandska Stiftelsen and Malmö Konstmuseums stipendium.
