LandEscapes

Borås Art Museum, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

The exhibition LandEscapes presents works from the Borås Art Museum's collection, which in different ways relate to the multifaceted concept of landscape. Through both older works and new acquisitions, we travel through time and space and explore some of the different meanings that landscapes can be associated with, both in outer and inner spaces.

Are there places to escape to or from, a state of wanting to slip into or out of?

Everyday scenes, distant dreamy landscapes and bodily regions spread out. Utopian and dystopian revelations take place in front of or within us. Situations that can call for broader views and new perspectives on life. Are we where we want to be? How else do we get there?

A place, a zone, a continent has a political connection, where the prevailing political climate leaves its mark. Politics is also related to the territory of the individual and calls for the idea of equality, the inviolability of the individualin both the physical and the mental sphere.

In a stream of impressions, we sometimes need to turn our eyes inward to reflect, but also outward to question the outside world, get help navigating and perhaps carve out a new direction in today's diverse landscape.

The exhibition shows thirty works, some of which are new acquisitions.

The exhibition runs until 16 August 2020.
