Marabouparken Konsthall – Edward Clydesdale Thomson
The first solo exhibition of Edward Clydesdale Thomson in Sweden brings together a series of works which exist on the margins of inside and outside, questioning the relation between landscape, ideology and identity. Here, one group of works presented indoors act as a precursor for a new work outdoors, five sculptures commissioned specially for Marabouparken. At Marabouparken Konsthall the artist has transformed the gallery into a metaphorical space of everyday objects, images and forms that blur the boundaries between interior and exterior. Drawing from the topiary garden and his own childhood memories, Thomson presents garden as cultural construct, but also as an element of imagination and memory.
Marabouparken Konsthall received from the Mondriaan Fund a Grant International Presentations for the exhibition and production of new work of Edward Clydesdale Thomson.
The exhibition Nothin’ Shakin’ but the Leaves on the Trees can be seen from 13 May until 16 August 2015.
