About the gallery
Since its foundation in 1991, Andréhn-Schiptjenko has been committed to working internationally.
The gallery represents emerging and established contemporary international artists in the long term, presenting painting, sculpture, photography and video, as well as installation-based and site-specific work.
Recently Andréhn-Schiptjenko has broadened its scope to include collaborative and multidisciplinary projects. In 2019 the gallery expanded its international reach with the opening of their second space in Paris.
Martin Jacobson (SE)
At Market Art Fair 2023, Andréhn-Schiptjenko is delighted to present a solo presentation with Martin Jacobson where he will exhibit his most recent work.
Starting with existing images on archetypal motifs and themes such as sunsets, forests, mythological images and architectural forms and then recombining these elements, Martin Jacobson creates new motifs, often in stark and an almost unreal range of colours. Interpreting these originals is a way for Jacobson to create an image that is both new and old, familiar and unknown. A concentrate of light- and colour-phenomena, cultural references and emotional reactions take place in a scenographic world where, just as on stage, fiction and reality meet and the double nature of beauty is allowed to be both seductive and repulsive.
Martin Jacobson (b. 1978, Sweden) has since his graduation from Malmö Art Academy (Malmö, Sweden) in 2005 been exhibited at numerous solo and group exhibitions, both in Scandinavia and internationally. Recent projects include a set design with monumentally scaled paintings, made for a stage show originally, presented at Wanås Konst in Sweden and an extensive solo exhibition at Vandalorum (Värnamo, Sweden).
