Marabouparken art gallery is run by a foundation with the aim of presenting a selection of the most interesting contemporary Swedish and international artists. Since 2010, Marabouparken art gallery is located in Arthur von Schmalensee’s former cocoa laboratory in Marabou Park.
Our Inner Nature
With the point of departure in Marabouparken’s own history and what it can tell us about the ideals and the time in which it was designed, we have chosen works from the collection of Malmö Art Museum. The exhibition gathers twelve prominent Nordic artists whose works span the 1880s to the present day. Artists: Ann Böttcher, Kajsa Dahlberg, Olafur Eliasson, Carl Fredrik Hill, Joachim Koester, EvaMarie Lindahl, Sivert Lindblom, Anna Ling, Gerhard Nordström, Henrik Olesen, Nina Saunders, Lars-Andreas Tovey Kristiansen.
On Invasive Grounds
In the exhibition the artist Katja Aglert explores some of the ideas related to the widespread notion of a lost natural, primordial state, characterised by harmony and balance, which we strive to re-establish. The exhibition traces the human hand in the proliferation of artificial light, explores the Arctic of male myths and the flora of the World Heritage site of Suomenlinna in neon-based work and video installations.
Exhibition period: 22 February–19 June
