From Sunday 8 October, Museum Voorlinden will be exhibiting the work of Swedish artist Michael Johansson (1975). Johansson’s methodology is one of collecting, organising, stacking, and puzzling.
The everyday objects that he brings together are given new form and context in his sculptures and installations. In addition to a number of existing works, the museum will also showcase a 40-square-meter, site-specific work, created especially for this exhibition. For this project, team Voorlinden put themselves in Johansson’s shoes and collected all kinds of objects, which Johansson will use to create a new, wall-to-wall artwork. Besides work in the cabinets, visitors will be surprised by the artist at unexpected locations in and around the museum.
