When the Ice Neither Breaks nor Bears
Klas Hällerstrand

9 - 23 February 2020
Vernissage 12 – 3pm Sunday 9 February
Glitter Ball showroom & projects, Kyrkogatan 1a, Enköping

Since graduating from the Umeå School of Art in 2008, Klas Hällerstrand has remained constant in his artistic expression. Working at a delicate pace with wood and mixed media, Hällerstrand has produce artworks related to objects derived from the human habitat and its surrounding nature. To look at Hällerstrand's work is like seeing distinct and separate pieces from a range of contexts and scenes, modified by a very precise and careful touch.

About the show Klas says:

I focus on a couple of older works in a new context. He is now embarking on a new project in which he uses both new and older works to reflect on the importance of friction and resistance.

Klas lives and works in Enköping, Sweden. He studied at Umeå At School (2003 – 2008). Since then he has had several solo exhibitions in Sweden as well as participating in group shows in Sweden, Norway, America, and Vietnam. His work has been exhibited in Enköping’s Art Gallery, Gallery Charlotte Lund (Stockholm), Sigtuna Museum, Västerås Art Museum, Kalmar Art Museum, Market Art Fair (Stockholm), The Armory Show, New York, and in Hanoi, Vietnam. In 2017 Klas was received Region Uppsala’s Culture Award and in 2011 he was granted an Arts Award by the Swedish Arts Council.

Klas is represented in the following public collections: Statens konstråd, Landstinget Gävleborg, Region Uppsala, Uppsala Council, Nya Karolinska Hospital, Handelsbankens Art Association, Bonniers Art Association, as well as private collections.
