Petra Lindholm’s imagery contains abstracted reflections on our environment close to a collapse. Her act of zooming out to geological perspectives, ages or life cycles, generates a necessary counterposition. Current phenomena that interest her are how larger areas of ice and permafrost now melt and how traces of past life appears. Perhaps the traces of our own civilization will not be more than an abnormal discoloration in the bedrock about 50,000 years from now. Massive mountain landscapes are recurring in Lindholm’s work, inspired by a longer stay in Kathmandu. Her new works have been populated and describes a migration that is going on since the origin of man and the growing movement that occurs today.

Landscape is alive.
Landscape speaks, sounds and draws the spaces it consists of.
It is made of earth, air, water, lights and shadows,
of gestures, actions, occurrences and intentions,
of voids and solids.
Landscape is not inside our mind, it is in our hands and in our eyes.
In line with a well-established path of investigation focusing on landscape as a ‘topos’, the exhibition Beyond Landscape aims to present and keep track of the practice of seven young artists – both Italian and international – whose artistic research deals with the same issue. READ MORE

I Call it the Universal Circle
”I call it the Universal Circle” är en grupputställning som önskar belysa, gestalta och påminna om en märkvärdig realism, den verklighet som omger oss. Bland annat genom att se på likheter och olikheter i strukturer som människan och naturen skapar, samt genom att närma sig sprickorna och mötena mellan dessa.

Toppen Hits is a collective show put together by curator Juha-Heikki Tihinen, of works by artists who have exhibited either at Elverket or Sinne, or both. The exhibition as whole, which comments on temporality, will change regularly, encouraging viewers to consider how an exhibition experience can differ between visits, and how previous experiences affect both people’s responses to art and their visits to an exhibition.

Interview: Towards the Whiteout
Towards the Whiteout
Artist Petra Lindholm whose body of work notably has seen her working with the medium of video speaks to us in the interview about arriving at a new distinctive process of working with imagery. Her beautiful new exhibition “Whiteout” at Galleri Magnus Karlsson, inspired by recent travels to Katmandu, allegorizes and shines light on the way we live our lives today, seeking affirmation by a constant chase for the next thrill and high.

Towards the Virgin Mouontains
By: Andrea Lerda
As a symbol for today's need to reach the top, socially speaking; as an occasion for self-affirmation (Empty Vessels, 2014); or else as the tendency to impel an ever increasing number of people to undertake climbing expeditions that were once only accessible to the most expert climbers. An example is what happens on Mount Everest, which for some time has been the destination of "mountain enthusiasts" who have invented a new form of high altitude mass tourism. This is a phenomenon that sadly demonstrates the incivility of humanity due to its natural disposition to leave traces of its passage wherever it goes (the reference is to the rubbish left along the roadsides).
Whiteout, Solo Show
17.01 - 15.02. 2015
In Petra Lindholm’s last exhibition at the gallery (For Anne Marie, 2011) she started to work more three-dimensionally. A series of ceramic sculptures, hand-colored photographs and two light installations (thin layers of fabric placed in front of light sources) was shown together with the video that constituted the hub of the exhibition. The process of making these works gave a taste for more and when she now returns with the exhibition Whiteout, the physical and tactile has a central role.
