OBRA

Booth 13

OBRA is a physical and digital platform based in Malmö with the mission of mediating contemporary works of art to new and established audiences.

Since it's inception OBRA has been open and diverse in what refers to artistic medium and materials. We study and follow bodies of work and support them with the understanding that fine and contemporary art is a phenomenon that involves a series of social, cultural and material considerations that if properly articulated create interest –and even intrigue– around a work of art. Artists Carla Zaccagnini, Nike Åkerberg and Susanna Jablonski have significantly different approaches to art in every aspect of the word. Technique, process, content and questions addressed manifest themselves uniquely through their own perceptions and subsequent artistic activity. Concrete aspects like their geographical origin and their generation could help clarify their motives and open new readings stemming from their work.
