In an Exceptional Time

The final exhibition from the Master program from Umeå Academy of Fine Arts is a very personal show of young artists, who have put their energy and reflections into an old poetic and narrative system - art - at a time when so many certitudes have started to erode. This exceptional time, will be a sort of hidden sub-text of the works presented.

But there is also the trajectory of their individual practice, their interest to discuss materialities and media, like painting, video or sculpture, their narratives, stemming from the personal and a perception of the world. The approaches are individual, but this does not mean that they put up barriers of separation, since they communicate through the exhibited works.
