Eva Hild’s exhibition at Djurgården consist of six large-scale sculptures in aluminium, installed along Djurgårdsbrunnskanalen (se map below). The exhibition will be on view from 5 June to 31 August 2017.
Eva Hild is known for her characteristic organic forms and has gone from being one of Sweden’s most successful sculptors, to being recognized internationally and represented in major private and institutional collections around the world. In February, the 2017’s Asmund and Lizzie Arles Sculpture Prize was awarded to Eva Hild and presented by H.M. King Carl XVI Gustaf at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts.
Eva Hild’s sculptures are like microscopic cells exposed to pressure and movement. In contemplating their cavities, we find what is present by looking at what is absent. The interiors and exteriors are simultaneously visible, moving much like an ouroboro, as they at the same time display both a sense of fragility and strength.
"I examine the inner state of things. Openings that suddenly arise and lead forward. Movements and complex structures below the surface, a network of pillars, passage ways and inner rooms. In a slow working process I let the thoughts and words transform into the material. I have a dialogue with the shape, its qualities fill in the story, extending it, letting it take other directions." Eva Hild
We hope you will enjoy this exclusive opportunity to experience the greatness of Hild’s works in an environment where it is presented best. The exhibition is initiated by H.R.H. Prince Daniel and arranged by Galleri Andersson/Sandström in collaboration with the Royal Djurgården Administration.
