Before it All Falls
Running recurringly in Mette Björnberg’s sculptural body of work, spanning over close to twenty years is the quality of presenting more than initially meets the eye. With a keen command of materiality and colours, her works are attributed a near physical presence, pulling the viewer in for a closer glance, compelling you to almost touch and feel the works. As happy-go-lucky as they first appear, Mette Björnberg’s sculptures are deceivingly joyful, representing often an autobiographical extension of the artist herself; deriving from an inner emotional life, expressing mental and emotional conditions of mind. Short, yet evocative titles serve to hint at a larger and more nuanced scene begging to be unfolded, possibly altering and rebutting an initial perception of the presented work.
Mette Björnberg graduated from Malmö Art Academy in 1996, and lives and works in Södra Mellby. Mette Björnberg is represented by Galleri Magnus Karlsson in Stockholm as of many years and last presented a solo exhibition, “Breathing Space” with the gallery in 2013. Mette Björnberg has previously shown with Galleri Thomas Wallner on a number of occasions, most recently in the group exhibition “Polyfoni 2” earlier in 2014.
