The exhibition “A Clear Day” will take place at Nääs Castle, just outside Gothenburg, from the 20th of May to the 30th of September 2017. Five artists from the Nordic region are invited: Maria Lilja (S), Mikael Hansen (D), Kaisu Koivisto (F), Cecilia Parsberg (S), and Lise Wulff (N). Organizers are “Ett kryss för tanken” and Nääs Konsthantverk. The artists will be working on site before the exhibition. During the exhibition period, there will be several seminars and work shops.
Migration is the conceptual framework of the exhibition, in a broad perspective. The first human beings came to Nääs during the bronze age. Starting from the human cradle in the south east area of Africa, our predecessors moved through the Middle East and further up north through Europe and to the Nordic region. The artists are invited to reflect upon this historical movement, when looking at today’s refugee situation. The title “A Clear Day” invites to look at migration with a fresh view and within an historical context.
