Sofia Hultén - Here’s the Answer, What’s the Question?
This catalogue, printed by die Keure, accompanies the Sofia Hultén exhibition at Ikon Gallery. Organised in collaboration with Museum Tinguely, Basel, this is the most comprehensive exhibition to date of work by Berlin-based artist Sofia Hultén (°1972, Stockholm).
Through a combination of sculptures, photographs and films, Hultén conveys an ongoing preoccupation with the material world and how we navigate it through time. With an engaging thoughtfulness, Hultén’s work exemplifies her conviction that “everything is in flux and that change is always possible.” She develops philosophical propositions out of stuff found on the streets, or unwanted abject things, thrown away, reinforcing the idea of looking twice at what is all-too-often taken for granted.
This catalogue includes a foreword by Jonathan Watkins, an interview between Sofia Hultén and James Langdon, and essays by Lisa Anette Ahlers and Chris Sharp.
