Pathetically monumental or monumentally pathetic. Either way, this time everyone is in the audience.

EROS (Benedikte Bjerre & Magnus Andersen) has created two sculptures employing funny symbols and trivial objects. The two sculptures will be shown together at the two Issues locations during the exhibition. For the opening, Coyote will inhabit the space in between the two locations.

Marine life is usually covered from land and without letting the sea crea- tures speak for themselves. ANNA ZACHAROFF’s paintings tell a different story than those about simply eat or to be eaten, as if the sea was a jungle. From down below, we hear stories of abuse coming from shrimp undressed against their will and an octopus forced to live in a jar to take an active part in sports betting.

IMPRESSIONABLE AGE EXTENDER acts like a screen dump of Caspar Forsberg’s recent work with a particular yellow. He found it in the common Post-it® note and then extracted the colour using an NCS-scanner. The objects and materials painted in household paint merely act support for the yellow colour but also for texts, authored by a G-HOST whose intentions and qualifications shouldn’t be left unscrutinised.

Issues presents In Broad Daylight, a series of new painting works by Emanuel Röhss. Representing fluctuations in light during the summer solstice on June 21st, the eight blue paintings manifest time in a methodical manner yet through the impressions of the artist’s senses and memory.

Press info in English.


Issues presents Unseen by Thomas Hämén, an installation that muses on the connections, all coincidal, actual and forced, between the microwave, radar, Maleficent, the Aye-aye and The Silence.

Slavs and Tatars: PICKLE POLITICS

Issues is proud to present, together with Kulturhuset Stadsteatern, the complete series of lecture-performances by Berlin-based artist collective Slavs and Tatars.

Gina Beavers, Alfred Boman, Henning Hamilton, Thomas Hämén, Olga Pedan & Jim Thorell

Issues presents painting and sculpture by young, contemporary and familiar artists in a new and unfamiliar room. Like the new underground commuter train station below Odenplan, there is a new white cube on the Stockholm art scene but behind the Hillenberg restaurant on Humlegårdsgatan. What’s to be observed in both cases is that the mental and physical room and map is expanded in front of the Stockholm audience. Where bottlenecks are created in the public transport flow, pressure has to be released through new lines and stations in other places.

Detail of
‘The Classical Decomposer’

Issues is proud to present new works by Olga Pedan. What could be described as her ‘member berries’, the paintings and sculptures on show are drawn from images and objects reminiscent of Pedan’s childhood in the 90’s.
