WELCOME!!!

”Survival of the Fittest” – Concerning Circumstances 
Was initiated as to celebrate Studio44 ten years jubilee as artist driven initiative. It is meant to mirror our soforthcoming with the future in sight.

”Survival of the Fittest” – Concerning Circumstances

Background

Time, memory and representation are three of the many phenomena that refer to artistic processes and to human lives. These are three concepts that are difficult to deal with in a person’s life.

How can a life be described or defined? We cannot do so completely, only fragmentarily. But we are constantly processing these elements – as artists and as human beings.

This year Studio44 has been a part of Stockholm’s cultural life, or of cultural life in any sense, for ten years. An achievement we can be proud of, stubbornly continuing to work with exhibitions, in spite of it all.

We want to celebrate these ten years with an exhibition that focuses in various directions, backward, to the sides and forward as we glide through the rooms of time in our changing lives. We have different references when we are observers and when we work as artists. The processes look different and what do we remember of our efforts making art, what do we remember as observers of the work we saw seven years ago or yesterday?

We, the curators, have invited in work shown earlier in exhibitions at Studio44, five of those invited in turn have invited five of our present members to “conversations”. In addition to these conversations two artists and an artist duo have been invited. A slide show, Grace and Wit, will show documentation from the years that have gone by, and in a Lounge current members’ work will be presented in catalogues, manuals, papers and other documentation.

The reason for all of these invitations is that they show some of the breadth and some of the depth in the themes and issues Studio44 has focused on and asked questions about. Of course other work could have been shown with other points of departure by other curators. The participating works have been chosen with an intuitive feeling for our specific memories. The questions and themes that appear in these works come from this particular constellation.

So, what do we remember, how and why? What new questions may arise now when the representations once again meet the viewers’ senses with their memories and that which is forgotten?

We welcome you to an exhibition that looks around at the world and inwardly at the reality in which artists work today and at the works of art.

Thanks to all the colleagues who through the years and today have built up Studio44 and this exhibition.
