Emil Sandström [bfa-exhibition]

























Engaging with the fictions and longings of the artificial; with the oscillation between an object’s appearance and its numerous images. A basement entrance, potentially removed – an inaudible frequency putting matter into motion. A mist, a fog – an exhale stuck on a bathroom mirror. An imitation of weather – as carried out by a cold metallic body.
