LEKLANDET Skärholmen Centrum, Sweden

26 – 29 May 2022

Peter Varhelyi and Tina Willgren will represent the artist-run collective Studio 44 in Stockholm at Supermarket 2022. Their idea is to combine and show two apparently different artistic approaches and methods to an interesting meeting and interaction. Although their techniques and materials differ they believe they share a common theme.
Tina Willgren works with moving images. Her videos will take animated insect shapes, distorted through technical misuse and glitches in a game engine, as a starting point. The figures will buzz across screens, crawl, fly, die and re-emerge, in a fauna created with digital signals.
Peter Varhelyi works with textile, paint, and wood to create big costumes in a theatrical setting. These objects can be seen as larger-than-life figures in their own right, like avatars patiently waiting and witnessing, moving just slightly.
