Gothenburg Museum of Art
Vibrant collages that open doors to memories and cities meet portable glaciers in dark concentrated rooms.
In December, an exhibition with Eric Magassa and Jelizaveta Suska, winners of the Stena Foundation Culture Scholarship for 2022 in art, will open at the Gothenburg Museum of Art.
Eric Magassa (b 1972) is a Gothenburg-based multidisciplinary artist, trained in London and New York. He chiefly works with collages, photography, installations and music, investigating themes such as outsider experience, identity and historiography.
Jelizaveta Suska (b 1989 in Latvia) trained in Japan, Germany and the HDK-Valand Academy of Art and Design. She creates jewellery, a kind of portable sculptures that are reminiscent of geological finds, fragments of glaciers or miniature landscapes.
The Stena Foundation is an important institution in the cultural life of Western Sweden, providing a unique opportunity for artists to produce new works and increase their visibility. This year, six cultural practitioners each receive 300 000 SEK to stimulate further development.
