There is nothing to hide from in opaque fog
do you trust ice crystals just because they’re transparent?
the freezing coldness has made you lose your mind

Your rescue is from now on: fluff

Infernal Laugh Of a Furious Pony is a video installation in four chapters in which artists Hedda Viå and Josefin Arnell meets.


Last days of Circle of Daggers (14)

Circle of Daggers (14) is a collaboration between Stockholm based artists Dit-Cilinn and David Ohlsson and the installation is shown for the firtst time at Detroit. Open sat–sun: 12-4 pm.

Dit-Cilinn and David Ohlsson’s collaborations are characterized by their similar frames of reference. The two artists take two polarized positions, where one of them stands for unbridled, cancerous creativity and the other for the targeted precision. These different angles make their individual approaches to the mutual focal points to an intuitive and organic process. Dit-Cilinn and David Ohlsson have worked with Circle of Daggers (14) in spring 2010 and the works are now being shown for the first time at Detroit.

Using the magic ritual as fertile ground for themes of will and self fulfillment, Circle of Daggers (14) echoes the adolescent’s longing for beauty and stardom as well as the artist’s strife towards the masterpiece. Crystallizing the intensity of this wish and its sexual overtones.
The handles, chrysalises in different stages of transformation, represent the will – control – the conscious direction of energy towards a goal. The blade is the arrow that the will follows from the individual out into the world.
