Curated by Elias Kautsky and Anne Vigeland
Until the early 1950’s, Vällingby was rather unknown to the world. A few farms and cottages lay scattered there, inhabited by a modest population. Early settlements gave rise to the name as we know it – they were “the people on the hill” (“folket på vallen”), which then became Vällingarnas by. These people, who lived off their seasonal harvests, hardly knew that in a few hundred years, travelers from all over the world would visit Vällingby in order to study the utopic and celebrated model of the “ABC city”.
Vällingby’s transformation, and the ways it can be understood as a specific place within a vast universe, serves as the starting point for Splendid Silent Sun. The exhibition explores the relationships we create with our dwellings and how a slight shift in perspective, a single idea, can seem to alter a place for good. Taking place in the midst of Vällingby Centrum, the exhibition includes works by Karolina Brobäck, Berenike Corcuera, A K Dolven, Paul-Robin Sjöström, Lisa Tan, and Johan Thurfjell. Two public artworks, Flora and Fauna by Tilda Lovell, and The Sun Dial by Sven Holmström and Ole Berg have also been incorporated in a geographic extension of the exhibition – altogether asking us to expand our awareness and imagination across history and space.
The exhibition is open every day from 11:00–18:00, May 5–10.
