Charlotte Gyllenhammar Natt/Night

If in Stockholm don’t miss out the exhibition Natt by Charlotte Gyllenhammar at Fotografiska. In 1993 Gyllenhammar hung an oak (yes, a full grown very old oak tree) upside down above a busy shopping street in Stockholm city to empazise the importance to see and remember. And not forget or deny whatever history you’ve got. Walking under the oak was a strong experience (read more under the link ”Charlotte Gyllenhammar” to the right of this page.) The hanging, floating woman is another, perhaps even more intimate and challenging.

Years ago I took a stroll and came upon a gigantic oak tree hanging upside down in the sky, in the middle of a shopping area in Stockholm… The magnificent installation generated several visits; some at night when the tree was illuminated by red light.
Since then Charlotte Gyllenhammar has established herself as one of Sweden’s most influential artists. In her latest work she explores the subject’s integrity and the importance of perspective. Don´t miss out:
