4 februari – 30 april 2021

Johannes Hägglund

The first exhibition at VERK´s showroom presents large, energetic paintings by Johannes Hägglund that oscillate between figuration and abstraction. The beautiful patterns, in their distinct green colour palette, are reminiscent of the oversized leaves of exotic plants, which are also the source of inspiration for this series. With a love of materiality, energy and movement, these artworks examine the possibilities offered by painting.

Johannes Hägglund (b. 1993) is part of a young generation of Swedish artists who explore the classic medium of painting. He earned his master´s degree from the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm in 2020. Even before graduating, he enjoyed well-received exhibitions in Sweden and abroad, and has been awarded several grants. In 2021, his work will be exhibited at Falsterbo Konsthall, among other venues. Johannes Hägglund lives and works in Stockholm.

Verk + art

In addition to our furniture, you can also experience contemporary art at Verk’s showroom in Södermalm, Stockholm. Our collaboration with art curator Simone Schmid has paved the way for dialogue with both new and established artists. She selects art that raises issues and invites dialogue. In opening our doors to art, we are placing ourselves in a new context. We hope to be able to offer art lovers a new way of seeing furniture, and design enthusiasts an entry point to contemporary art.
