The Surrounding Reality
Björn Lövin’s (1937–2009) immersive installations or environments, constructed out of carefully chosen details that together formed fictive worlds in which visitors could move around, made him one of Sweden’s first installation artists.
His installations have been presented at various institutions, including Moderna Museet and Centre Georges Pompidou, but none of them have been preserved in their entirety. Several of them will be recreated for the occasion, to present this artistic practice that was so deeply characterised by constant exploration and a conceptual approach, addressing subjects and issues that are acutely relevant to this day.
