Opening reception: Friday 12th of May 18:00-21:00

“Tunnelsyn” (Tunnelvision) is a collaborative project of Benjamin Andersson, Arngrímur Borgþórsson, Maja Gade Christensen, Andreas Knag-Danielsen, Madelaine Sillfors, Linus Svensson, Sofia Wickman. Together they run Galleri CC, an artist run exhibition space in Malmö. The title of the exhibition comes from the idea of bringing together different artists who work in different ways and cover a wide variety of subjects and ideas. Each individual has their own area of interest, chosen subjects to view and explore. It can be said that in a way, all of them have tunnel vision, as they remain focused on their own ideas and subjects. The term tunnel vision is usually a term burdened by negative connotations, but it does not have to be. Many eyes next to each other, ignoring what they consider to be the periphery may, in fact, cover a wider area. Much like periscopes at sea or telescopes aimed at the skies, they come together and broaden their field of vision.

Benjamin Andersson (SE) builds scenarios in which the evident and the hidden is forced to coexist. Arngrímur Borgþórsson (IS) focuses on the complex systems of interactions between humans and technology. Maja Gade Christensen (DK) works systematically with patterns emergence and with decay. Andreas Knag-Danielsen (NO) deals with the interrelation between the human body and technology. Madelaine Sillfors (SE) investigates the sense of scale and understanding of the spatial and the haptic. Linus Svensson (SE) works with the process of investigating time and the working method itself. Sofia Wickman (SE) questions the aesthetics of nostalgia and longing in relation to memory and time.

Galleri CC is a non-commercial, artist-run gallery located in Malmö, Sweden. The group running the gallery take on the role of curators, embody and partake in exhibition concepts in collaborations with artists invited by the gallery. The exhibition “Tunnelsyn” will be their second exhibition of coming together and work, not as curators but as artists. The exhibition will consist of artworks which will both clash and share a common thread.

Galleri CC was founded in 2003 and is located in the residential neighbourhood of East Sorgenfri, Malmö. Since its inception the gallery has hosted more than one hundred exhibitions, performances and events with artists from all over the world.

Galleri CC has participated in Supermarket Art Fair in Stockholm, Art Swap Europe in Berlin, and Alt_Cph Art Fair in Copenhagen and collaborated with Galleria Rajatila Tampere (FI), WIZARD Gallery in Oslo (NO), OK Corral in Copenhagen (DK) and HilbertRaum in Berlin (DE).
