SEO

SEO was born in Korea, 1977. In 2001 she studied at the University of Art in Berlin under Professor Georg Baselitz. Since then she has been based in Berlin and she is now represented in international collections as MoMA, New York. SEO’s works have been exhibited at the Venice Biennale, Italy, 2001 and she has had several museum and gallery exhibitions around the world. SEO has previously been shown at Wetterling Gallery with the exhibition Global Things - The Long Way Back, 2014.

Ylva Ceder

Spaces always possess atmosphere. Whether it is interior or exterior, inhabited or empty and devoid of viewership, these spaces, and the narratives unfolding from them, are my area of interest.

Of importance to me are small, easily recognizable things, that are well known to all but, perhaps, lacking in meaning. They often originate in some kind of “Swedishness” and are a type of phenomena expressed through objects, places, and behaviors. It may be places and behaviors that are repeated and omnipresent, yet, if individually extracted, become unique. In my paintings, these phenomena become yet another repetition, but a new one where I add and subtract things. Most people recognize the content of my paintings: the places, the behavioral patterns, the objects, because they are stereotypes and clichés. Though the paintings originate from something documented, they are not specific or real.

While I used to be interested in representations of recognizable vernacular spaces, I am now interested in the opposite. Common to both directions is the presence of atmosphere. Lastly, what I also strive for, is that I try not to think.
