Market Art Fair

April 29 - May 1 | 2022

Galleri Nicolai Wallner is pleased to present our booth for Market Art Fair, featuring works by A Kassen, Cornelia Baltes, Elmgreen & Dragset, Jeppe Hein, Julie Lænkholm and Kinga Bartis. Exploring themes around the body and how we interact with ourselves and others, the chosen works each give us a moment to think and reconnect with these ideas.

With some works, this connection feels instinctive and immediate, namely with Jeppe Hein’s works. Focusing on the relationship between our bodies, minds and our environments, Hein shifts and quite literally moves us and our day-to-day experiences in subtle but powerful ways that create the possibility for new experiences. Jeppe Hein will open an extensive solo exhibition at Moderna Museet (Stockholm) in May of this year.

Similarly, the work of Cornelia Baltes draws us in to a narrative that is dynamic—already in motion. Each of Baltes brushstrokes feels deliberate, determined in their action while at the same time remaining open in their interpretation, revealing more to us with each turn. Baltes cleverly invites us to be participants in the work, becoming part of the larger story.

Alternatively, Kinga Bartis and Elmgreen & Dragset’s exhibited works focus on the relationships that exist between us and the other, opening up questions surrounding identity, the body, self-perception and power structures. This is notably seen in Elmgreen & Dragset’s sculpture In the same boat which is a companion piece to their permanent public sculpture in the Royal Djurgården, located close to the fair. Two lifesavers are linked together, negating their original function and instead poetically reminding us that our fates will always be intertwined with the fates of others.

A Kassen’ work from the Bronze Pour series is necessarily abstract yet somehow referential, activating an impulse within us to try and place its form. This way of elegantly reminding us how we need to understand and compartmentalise our world echoes a sentiment that we know we all share, a sentiment that makes us all human. A Kassen are in the process of completing a permanent public project together with a hospital in Hudiksvall.
