Gunilla Klingberg transforms artifacts found in common culture into sublime artworks covering a wide array of media. “Supernova – Interior Collapse” (above) was created specifically for the exhibit. The sculpture is made from floor coverings and other items found at IKEA. The piece feels like a room that has imploded into the shape of a star. This new form along with the title leads the viewer to believe that the work could go Nova at any moment.
Alongside newer works are installations dating back more than a decade that have been reinvented for display at the Konsthall. “Seven Eleven Twist” (above) from 1997 is a landmark design that sparked her methodology. The deterioration of logos into pattern has been a primary force in Klingberg’s work.
