Runo Lagomarsino's solo exhibition 'The Square between the Walls' at Lunds Konsthall.⁠⁠
"The Square Between the Walls, Lagomarsino’s solo exhibition at Lunds Konsthall, brings together a group of recent and older works with two new commissions dwelling on his own family’s history and his relationship with Lund. The artist‘s family fled the military regime in Argentina and settled in Lund in the late 1970s. His father found employment with Åkerlund & Rausing (now A&R Carton), where the presses worked around the clock to print cardboard for different sorts of packaging. Two new commissions, Mad Toy and Home Waits for No One (both 2021), are inspired by the Lagomarsino’s memories of visits to this factory with his father.⁠⁠
Visitors to the exhibition also have the unique opportunity to see one of the artist’s earliest works, A Song of Bola de Nieve (1997), a humorous piece in which he sings and simultaneously translates a song from Spanish into Swedish. It is shown together with a number of other recently produced works. His practice relies on the subversive and utterly precise use of language and symbols, and especially their implications for institutions, which is meant to empower viewers and encourage them to reflect on possible, probable and desirable futures."⁠⁠
