If Jeff Koons had a Swedish twin he would be spelled Alexander Tallén. The 28-year-old porcelain sculpture artist has, with his delicate hands, found his way from the Vårsalongen at Liljevalchs to museum exhibitions and gallery representation on an international scene in just two years. Now it's time for his first solo exhibition at Stene Projects. Tallén’s decorative, glazed miniatures represent a self-portrait of a bearded hipster with headphones and mobile phone, as well as a standard switch with floating gender identity and female attributes. The patisserie-like statuettes are based on the figurine heydays of the 1700s and explore that tradition in an updated format. Do not miss Tallén’s premiere on the big art scene.
