Cornelia Sojdelius Gallery – BJÖRN KJELLTOFT -UT UR PARADISET – November 14 to December 11 – Open wednesday to friday 12-18, saturday 12-16 – Cardellgatan 6 / Brahegatan, Stockholm, Sweden
ABOUT the exhibition
Cornelia Sojdelius Gallery is proud to present Björn Kjelltoft’s first solo exhibition at the gallery. There is something familiar and foreign in Björn’s pictures. I know that part of what feels familiar to me is still unknown to him, but I’m sure he would like it. He talks casually about his pictures without really explaining
them, the pictures are a language for things he does not know how to talk about. Björn himself describes his process as a hobby, or as wandering freely. He says he is no longer afraid to do nice or cute things. I think on him and I’m sure he does not in any way confuse this with that be “good”. His applications are rough but the touch is soft and the works sing. They sing persistent, skewed, and hovering about travel and transparent rooms. If snooping clouds, snuff, and elephants in operation. “See you at T” is the chorus. In Björn’s world, the mood is pleasantly varied, a high-pitched expression is glued together with the everyday. There is a clear longing away, the journey is repetitive and the target is variable. Björn 46 years. Björn has taught me to glue, he is from Gothenburg, is generous and brave. Björn is not employable and knows magic. He is vain and anti-elitist. Björn is curious.
