Under Construction

Lars Englund’s art is characterized by exploration and could be described as “work in progress.” Englund has collaborated with cement and rubber factories, bases his work on machine parts and industrial materials, changes scale from model to monumental, and finds inspiration in subways and Baroque architecture alike.

Visitors will recognize the materials Englund uses from building facades and workshops, and his choices draw our attention to our everyday surroundings, elevating the commonplace to the extraordinary. 

This presentation combines a monographic collection exhibition with works on loan from the artist. The focus of Englund’s work is revealed in titles that associate to fundamental science, such as “Volume”, “Sphere”, and “Pars Pro Toto” (part of a whole). His sculptures, which often hang from the ceiling, interact with one another and challenge the surrounding space.
