The Garden is Open
Martin Jacobson at Andréhn-Schiptjenko, Stockholm
May 7 – June 27, 2020

It’s with pleasure that we announce The Garden is Open, Martin Jacobson’s fifth solo exhibition with the gallery. The opening will take place on May 7th without an opening reception, and you are welcome to visit the exhibition during our regular opening hours.

Dreams, myths and archetypical images all have in common that they are a door into a shared human consciousness, to experiences unbound by time, which connect mankind. Jacobson’s imagery can be read as an associative stream, generating from these shared experiences. The way in which modern mankind perceive herself and her existence in relation to nature is a dualistic world-view: man is ”another”, and our existence is alien and separated from what we define as natural. Myths, dreams and archetypical images all point to a, for mankind quintessential, transcendental longing, a desire to connect beyond the limits of the static self as limited by time. With a desire to deepen the understanding of how we perceive ourselves in relation to the world surrounding us, Jacobson delves with his theatrical and saturated expression deeper into this dichotomy. How is it that a, to us previously unfamiliar, motif can awaken the feeling of recognition? How is it that certain light- and color phenomena awaken an instinctive, emotional reaction within us? It is this intuitive recognition that Jacobson seeks to portray in his works:

”For me, an encounter with art is defined by suddenly recognizing and remember something previously unseen. When this occurs, art has a healing and uniting function. For me, my work in the studio is about reaching that experience: to suddenly stand in front of a picture, which appears more found than created by me, as if it was salvaged from a forgotten dream”
