Theresa Traore Dahlberg at Konstakademien, Stockholm, Sweden: Group-exhibition

Tengbomhallen, Konstakademien, Stockholm, Sweden 12 - 17 November 2022 
Tengbomhallen, Konstakademien, Stockholm, Sweden
Commissioned by the Sveriges Allmänna Konstförening, Theresa Traore Dahlberg’s large installation in the Tengbomhallen, Konstakademien, is made of 100 unique copper and glass works.
Theresa Traore Dahlberg is a visual artist and filmmaker who formulates and mediates engaging and complex narratives through sculpture, photography, and film. Her sculptural works often take a point of departure in the material itself, as a physical material and as a container of histories, ideas, and notions. The artist pays attention to production, working conditions, workers’ identities and personal stories, creating art that reflects the complexity of class, women's roles, and post-colonialism. Her films narrate stories in the expanded field of documentary including themes such as representation of the other, by questioning how individuals, events and places are perceived, interpreted and understood. Traore Dahlberg draws from her own experiences of being anchored in two political and social cultures, Sweden and Burkina Faso.
