Jacob Dahlgren

Jacob Dahlgren

Jacob Dahlgren is a Swedish painter, sculptor, and conceptual artist who works to a large extent with unconventional materials. The artist finds abstraction in everyday objects, which he employs to create dynamic interactive installations and performances. When arranged, the individual objects lose their intended function, their original value, and become part of something completely new. Along with experimenting with such artistic styles of the twentieth century as Constructivism, Minimal Art, and Pop Art, Dahlgren also quotes from the Op Art movement. A common theme for all the works is how art and our everyday life are intertwined.The exhibition at Falsterbo Strandbad (May 25 - August 20, 2017) contains a series of abstract paintings which are industrially manufactured from daily experiences. Jacob Dahlgren was born in 1970, Stockholm, Sweden. He studied at The Royal Institute of Fine Arts Stockholm between 1994-99 and he received his M.F.A. in 1999.
