    The exhibition, for space, brings together a group of artists who emphasise and consider the exploration and excavation of space through various approaches to drawing. For each individual artist, drawing is processed through encountering, researching, and engaging with architecture and objects in the physical and virtual realms. Their works address the textural, sensory, and durational nature of psychological space, as well as the historical recording of plotted space.

    Solo Exhibition: Pär Strömberg, ANIARA, Galleri Aniara in Sollentuna
    30 June – 20 August 2017
    Galleri Aniara
    Sollentuna Bibliotek, Aniaraplatsen 2
    191 21 Sollentuna, Sweden

    2016 marked the 60th anniversary of Aniara by Nobel laureate, Harry Martinsson. A novel that has inspired many artists, musicians and theater/film makers for generations. In 2016, Pär Strömberg also received The Sollentuna Municipal Cultural Award, and to mark this he will present work inspired by Aniara at Galleri Aniara in Sollentuna. Strömberg depicts night skies, mountains, melting glaciers, strange sky phenomena, all with a dystopian, psychological twist. These paintings serve as a contemporary commentary to the novel and the discourse of the environmental threats and climate crisis in the world today. There is not only an apocalyptic atmosphere, but one of hope and beauty and a positive resurgent atavism.
