Siri Derkert – The personal is political
March 14 – April 27, 2019
Andréhn-Schiptjenko is proud to present the second exhibition of works by Siri Derkert (1888–1973), spanning the period of 1940 to 1970.
Siri Derkert is known for her highly personal expressionist style and for her monumental public commissions, often of a political nature. She is one of the few prominent female artists in Swedish art history. Her most well-known works are perhaps “Carvings in Natural Concrete” at the subway station Östermalmstorg (1961-65) and “The Sweden Wall” (1967), both in Stockholm.
Siri Derkert’s evolution from an elegant contemporary modernism in the 1910s to the pronounced political public art she became famous for in the 1960s, is a testament to the various ways an artist can relate to the private and the political.
A feminist approach seems to have been de rigeur for the group of young artist students, Siri Derkert belonged to before the WW I. At a time when Sweden did not have female suffrage and marriage meant that a woman was placed under her husband’s guardianship, Derkert’s work was further formed by the personal experience of being a single mother of three children during the 1920s.
