On view | “Mark the Line”, group exhibition with Runo Lagomarsino

(Gotenburg, Sweden)

Runo Lagomarsino has works on view at the group exhibition “Mark the line”, at the Göteborgs Konsthall. It is an international group exhibition exploring how we mark our territory, determine power relations, and differentiate ourselves from others using lines. “Mark the line” is an exhibition that seeks to depict the tangible presence of lines in all our lives.

“Mark the Line” is an examination of “the line”, not only as a sign of stylistic expression embodied in works of art, but a symbol, the direct, often unmediated expression of intellectual and psychological content. The exhibition explores the line’s constant presence in our lives, how it, materially and immaterially, always affects and restricts. It focuses upon the line as both signalling division and creating a unity of space, charged with profound political, emotive or social implications. In its simplicity, the line sustains itself as a potent expression of political messages and humane action. The exhibition gathers issues around “territory”; how one space is demarcated from another. What are the current strategies from artistic to social to political claiming or reclaiming marked land? And how have artists attended to these subjects where we see growing political tension and cultural conflict around the world?
