"In the laboratory, that my studio is, I attempt to listen to the voices that I have ignored for as long as I have lived.
Asking Nature to be my teacher; cooperating with other living beings.
As I learn to embrace it, it challenges my sense of time, self, and overall understanding of what surrounds me."
In this solo exhibition, Julie Sjöfn follows her curiosity about the living world through an art practice that blends different media and disciplines. Her works play with a loss of agency from the artist and are replaced by cooperation between other beings and herself. This exhibition acts as a slow experimental station that aims to open conversations and connections with the living beings that we share the world with.
 
Warnings: be gentle, curious and critical.
