ABOUT the exhibition
Eva-Teréz Gölin’s artistic practice is informed by the photographic image and it’s context. Gölin’s background in professional image editing and Fine Art printing forms the basis of her work – to transform the intangible and sometimes invisible information in the digital image files into a physical dimension.
Gölin’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, In Absence of Shadow, is built upon the artist’s latest work Deflation presented together with three pieces from the series Evidence of No Importance as well as a third image, After Image. This collection of work is based upon the idea of the photograph’s relationship to reality.
Gölin reconnects to her previous work by continuing to explore the beach and the swimming pool as a borderland between pleasure and self-inflicted vulnerability, focusing on images of a deceptive calm that takes place in a so-called ‘lazy river’.
To slowly glide downstream in a predetermined path could be seen as a metaphor for many individuals’ passivity in the face of the climate crisis. A threat, something that has not happened and therefore not tangible – exists in stark contrast to the image that the photographic image represents – a latent image that is only visible when the threat is executed.
ABOUT the gallery
Founded 2008 by designer Deborah Duerr, Galleri Duerr believes art exhibitions are great ways to tell important stories of our time. With a clear vision of making contemporary art more accessible, Galleri Duerr, a member of Svenska Galleriförbundet since March 2020, focuses on intercultural meetings between different art forms, artists and generations—national and international, new and established. Since the gallery’s start, it has had an exhibition program focusing on contemporary painting, drawing, sculpture, photography and design, and is today a living forum for exhibitions and performances in various formats.
We are excited to welcome you to our new location at Hudiksvallsgatan 6, second floor, in the Stockholm Galleri District.
We are also a partner gallery on Artsy online resource for art collecting and education. Our vision is to exhibit in a variety of public spaces with interesting collaborations, always on the lookout for new and innovative ways to reach out.
