On the last day of the exhibition, a reading from the artist book: object amnesic: a compost manifesto by Henrik Strömberg and Jens Soneryd will take place in the gallery. Jens Soneryd will read a selection of his poetry from the book.
The publication won the BUP Award in 2020 and was subsequently published by Blow Up Press in 2021. This week it was nominated for the Photo-Text Book Award at Rencontres d’Arles
The idea of the compost in its natural and metaphorical form continues through the photographic works and in the video installation piece seconds away present in Henrik Strömberg’s exhibition. The recent artist book serves as a point of reference throughout the exhibition.
Jens Soneryd writes, edits, curates, and collects plants. Educated in Literature and Philosophy (Stockholm, Sweden), he explores the concept of the culture-nature relationship. He is based in Bernshammar and Berlin.
