DAWID | ENLARGEMENTS
March 14 – June 6 2020
Dawid, Untitled, painting from the series Enlargements, 2008
We are pleased to present Enlargements, an exhibition that features photographs and paintings by the Swedish artist Dawid (Björn Dawidsson). Since his debut in the 1970s, Dawid has been deeply interested in the formal aspects of photography, and his exploration of the material and visual possibilities, as well as the limits, of this medium, often seems as if it is balanced on a tightrope between the graphic and the photographic.
In his enlargement of selected negatives that are transferred on canvas, Dawid mixes the geometric simplicity of squares, lines and arcs with various hues, tints and tones, and the result is what can be considered a “reading” that forces us to question our own perception of the world.
DAWID has shown his works in countless international solo and group shows in the Museum Folkwang in Essen, Germany, the National Museum and Moderna Museet in Stockholm and Malmö Konsthall, Sweden and Kiasma, Helsini, Finland. The artist has been called Sweden’s first post-modern artist and influenced generations of photographers. Dawid published around 30 books. His work has been included in numerous collections.
