The Seamstress, 91×104 cm, Ink, Airbrush, Vinyl and Oil on canvas (2017)


quotemarkShadows play an important role in Kristoffer Zetterstrand’s latest works. By digitally 3D-

modelling vast landscapes from old paintings, he is able to change the time and weather in the

motives after his own choosing. In these temporalized environments he posits disparate

objects, people and animals, ultimately creating dream-like scenarios. Each of these scenes,

by the artist himself described as virtual still lifes, is then transferred back onto a canvas.

The position of the sun determines the direction and length of the shadows in each painting. It

thus presents us with a distinct idea of time and location – our position in relation to the sun

and whether it is sunset or sunrise. The shadows further present us with a conception of depth,

varying from motive to motive. In The View III the landscape occurs as a two-dimensional

backdrop, whereas in The Seamstress it appears to be endless.

At the same time, the notion of both time and place is dissolved by the painting’s surrealistic

motives. Zetterstrand’s works contain fragments of images from different periods of time;

they are filled with references to art history as well as contemporary elements like the graffiti

in The Steps. The soft brush strokes and subtle use of nuances enhance the feeling of illusion

evoked by the collages. The outcome is dramatic, almost theatrical. By building his own

worlds – constructing, changing and demolishing static works of art – Zetterstrand brings life

into the history of painting.

Painting failures


12.3 – 13.3 2016
Moderna Museet Malmö

Helgen 12-13 mars visar vi resultatet av konstnärsexperimentet Painting failures, som samlat över sextio målare. Utställning och seminarier under två dagar.
Painting Failures är ett initiativ taget av konstnärer för konstnärer som samlat fler än sextio målare. Tanken har varit att arbeta vidare med varandras omöjliga och för konstnären inte längre intressanta målningar. Meningen med utbytet är att föra en dialog i färg och skapa en diskussion om måleri mellan konstnärer på deras egna villkor. De lämnade, oavslutade eller misslyckade målningarna har fördelats slumpmässigt genom lottning och sedan bearbetats vidare av en mottagare som fått helt fria händer.
Under helgen på Moderna bjuder konstnärerna in allmänheten att ta del av detta experiment med en utställning och seminarier kring projektet, måleri och den konstnärliga processen.

Vernissage fredag 11 mars kl. 18-20!
18.30 hälsar museichef John Peter Nilsson välkommen och konstnärerna introducerar utställningen.

Öppna seminarier: lördag 12 mars 13-15 och söndag 13 mars 13-15
Varmt välkommen!

Deltagande konstnärer:
Maria Nordin, Carl Hammoud, Jesper Nyrén, Johanna Fjaestad, Kristoffer Zetterstrand, Lina Bjerneld, Felix Vasquez-Aguilera, Torbjörn Johansson, Martina Muntzing, Sigrid Sandström, Susanne Vollmer, Therese Jonsson Szatek, Sofie Lardner Häggström, Lukas Götman, Magnus Alexandersson, Nanna de Wilde, Jan Rydén, Stina Rosenberg, Lucas Rahn, Joakim Lager, Filippa Arrias, Olle Schmidt, Danilo Stankovic, Hertha Hansson, Eva Larsson, Jim Thorell, Sofie Arfwidson, Viktor Rosdahl, Ditte Ejlerskov, Marianne Andersson, Nina Roos, Andreas Glad, Ella Tillema, Fredrik Norén, Gabriella Ioannides, Andreas Emenius, Nichlas Winmalm, Lisa D Manner, Ellisif Hals, Johan Furåker, Magdalena Svensson, Jakob Simonson, Andreas Poppelier, Emm Berring, Nug, Lena Johansson, Elizabet Thun, Tomas Lundgren, Fredrik Åkum, Lotta Döbling, Sara Forsström, Elin Elfström, Martin Formgren, Jonas Pike, Pär Strömberg, Sofie Josefsson, Gittan Jönsson, Marcus Anteskog, Pauliina Pietilä, Paul Fägerskiöld, Kristina Jansson, Monika Marklinger, Anna Bjerger, James Aldridge, Pierre Sandgren, Yngve Rådberg och Kristina Matousch.

Selfportraits / Självporträtt

Group show -3 july – 8 august

Gerlesborgsskolans Konsthall & galleri [map]

Partiticipating: Lars Arrhenius, Lena Cronqvist, Anders Widoff, Peter Ojstersek, Arne Isacsson, Karin Granqvist, Karin Wikström, Yngve Rådberg, Martina Müntzing, Kristina Jansson and Kristoffer Zetterstrand.
Självporträttet – en konstnärs dialog med sin egen spegelbild – är speciellt fascinerande. Genren har ett alldeles eget spår genom konsthistorien och säger ofta något om den tid de är gjorda i. Sommarens utställning fokuserar på det samtida självporträttet med alla dess motstättningar och frågeställningar. Hur ser konstnären idag på självporträttet? Vilken känsla ska förmedlas? Vad känns tillgjort och vad är äkta? Ett flertal inbjudna konstnärer ger genom utställningen sina skilda svar.

Cut my legs off and call me shorty!

Thawing. 456x200cm (diptych). Oil on canvas. (2009)
Opening June 17th 17:00-21:00
Exhibition period: June 17th – September 19th 2009

Tensta Konsthall

Cut my legs off and call me shorty! is an exhibition that explores elements of humour and surprise. The thirteen Swedish based artists included work with ideas and ways of making that force us to look and look again. We may think we have understood an image but when we allow ourselves a closer examination there are unexpected twists, shocking details, hidden pratfalls, double and triple meanings. There are 5 artists showing in the main hall who work with photography, painting and illustration: Susanna Hesselberg, Ulf Lundin, Emma Rendel, Ulla West & Kristoffer Zetterstrand. The second part of the exhibition is a selection of Swedish video art curated by Gunnel Pettersson in association with Film Form and includes works from 1962 – 2009 and includes: Henrik Andersson, Reuben Henry, Tove Kjellmark, Karin Kihlberg, Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd, Malin Skjöld, Per Teljer, Christine Ödlund. We have taken the following quote by American writer E.B. White as good advice for the show. “Analyzing humour is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it”.

A translated extract from PO Hagströms’ text:
Rescene: Kristoffer Zetterstrand at Haninge konsthall

Kristoffer Zetterstrand was born in 1973, and graduated from the Royal University College of Fine Art in 2001. Since then, he has become well known for his visual art, where motifs from various epochs blend together, and where the investigative and the narrative are central parts.
Looking at Zetterstrands’ art, we often find ourselves in the middle of a story, as if we have stepped into the darkness of a cinema theater in the middle of the film. The brain starts to work, how does the different parts relate to each other? What does the deployed objects mean, and what relations are there between the main characters? We recognice the different parts: ruins, mountains, figures from renaissance and computer games, Plato’s cave and the enlighting or consuming fire – but there is also something askew in the images. We discover that the stories we have read into Zetterstrand’s motifs are like the enthusiastic but inadequate efforts of a conspiracy theorist, trying to make things make sense. It’s all connected, but something is not right. And it is that gap that keep us engaged.

The exhibition Rescene
The title of the exhibition is a play with words. It originates from reusal, or re-seeing, or perhaps a scene being brought back into use. And accordingly, the exhibition is also a recap of the paintings of the last few years, where Zetterstrand’s method of constructing different environments, like a scenoghrapher, is a recurring theme. To do this, he uses the computer as his scetching tool.
By three-dimensionally building the scenery, he can turn the image around and see it from all directions. He can also move around, remove and place different pictorial elements and then light the motif in different ways to see how the shadows move. After this, the painting can begin. Zetterstrand describes the painting as the part of the work process where he, with his own words, can allow himself to improvise upon the themes he worked out in the computer. This, therefore, is the most important part of the work, where the ideas are physically tested, as the brush meets the canvas.
