Ascolto il tuo cuore, cittĂ 

05/03/2021 • 30/04/2021

Jonas Dahlberg’s videos Untitled (Horizontal Sliding) (2000) and Untitled (Vertical Sliding) (2001), feature empty interiors whose reality is both enigmatic and suggestive. The slow movement of the camera reveals one room after another, evoking archetypal spaces that look familiar and foreign at the same time. Light seeps from under closed doors, but there’s no reason to think anyone’s home, or rather, in their rooms. Appearances, of course, prove deceptive. Dahlberg’s sets are architectural models, built to a circular plan, and filmed with a centrally positioned rotating camera. What seem to be tracking shots are really 360° pans, describing loci that inevitably read as nodes in a labyrinth–a subtly scary one, since its vertical and horizontal extension implies the impossibility of…Continua / More

Jonas Dahlberg | 2016

12/02/2016 • 01/04/2016

Magazzino is pleased to announce the third solo show by Swedish artist Jonas Dahlberg in the gallery space. After having focused in recent years on large-scale public commissions, Dahlberg produced a new series of works with a more intimate and personal approach, echoing an inner landscape of visual and sound memories, and an immersive fascination with nature. A series of photographs, both in colour and black & white, depicts common birds sitting on tree branches in their natural environment. What appears to be a skilful snapshot of a chance encounter with nature, is in fact a natural setting carefully prepared and pre-constructed by the artist himself, who stages a sort of cinematographic diorama and waits for the perfect instant to…Continua / More

Three Rooms | 2008

Three Rooms is an installation consisting of three large screens separated by gaps of 1.5-2 metres in a black, silent room. The three different rooms shown on the three screens are similarly lit, accommodating shadow and shade, similarly occupied by generic modern domestic objects and of a similar spatiality. The spectator cannot avoid the impression of seeing a living room, a dining room and a bedroom on the screens. During the course of twenty-six minutes the objects in the rooms dissolve, leaving only the lighting and the bare space. Objects which are thin disappear gradually. Other thicker objects whose mass is unevenly distributed involve a process of falling over and breaking before they, too, disappear. As the objects degrade the…Continua / More

Altre voci, altre stanze | 2003

Dopo le mostre di Massimo Bartolini, Atelier van Lieshout, Vedovamazzei, Daneiele Puppi, la personale di Jonas Dahlberg prosegue il programma Altre voci, altre Stanze/Other voices, other rooms, a cura di Cloe Piccoli per il Magazzino d’Arte Moderna. Altre voci, altre Stanze/Other voices, other rooms considera l’interesse di molti artisti contemporanei per gli ambienti. Spazi astratti o praticabili, vere e proprie architetture, o simulazioni virtuali, progetti in miniatura, o interventi in autentici edifici, negli ultimi anni molti artisti hanno scelto di lavorare sugli spazi. Così hanno costruito stanze, case, studi, studioli, barche, quartieri, intere cittĂ , con l’intenzione umanistica, di rimettere l’uomo al centro dell’universo, con l’idea di creare spazi come luoghi dell’esperienza il cui carattere preciso e peculiare stimola la mente…Continua / More
