"THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE"

2020.08.28 - 2020.10.17

 

Picture this: David Bowie, Bruce Lee, Frida Kahlo and a gathering of Pop culture’s most famous figures all sitting at the table for dinner. In his delectable new series, The Beautiful People, internationally acclaimed Australian Pop painter Johnny Romeo makes his electrifying debut in Sweden with a visual feast for the senses. Renowned for his explosive fusion of colourful Pop slickness, punk rock grit, razor sharp wit and ingenious culture jamming, Romeo is the leading force in Australian Pop art and has dazzled audiences the world over with his highly distinctive Kitsch Pop style. Australia’s King of Pop art brings together a who’s who of Pop culture icons, ranging from rebellious heartthrobs and silver screen starlets to cosmic glam rockers and kung fu masters, to create his very own Technicolour banquet. The Beautiful People is a vibrant, playful and unashamedly Pop showcase that gives Swedish audiences their first tasty glimpse into the mind of Australia’s leading Pop artist and culture jammer.

"RETRO FUTURE"

2020.08.28 - 2020.10.17

 

Space exploration and roaming through our vast solar system, an adventure shared by two cosmonauts. Travelling from planet to planet, these two characters explore the interrelations between beings and contexts, overlapping technology, space, time and imagination.

Emanuel De Sousa exploring the role of nostalgia, contextualized aesthetically and thematically, supported by sci-fi movies from the 50s to the 70s. More specifically, the two main characters, the yellow and red cosmonauts, have an indirect relationship with the two main astronauts (Dr. Dave Bowman as the red astronaut, played by Keir Dullea and Dr. Frank Poole, as the yellow astronaut, played by Gary Lockwood) from the 1968, “2001: A Space Odyssey”, film produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick, and written by Arthur C. Clarke.
