7 September–16 November

Catti Brandelius is a visual artist, a performer and a singer. Characteristic of Brandelius’ artistic practice is to mirror the difference between dream and reality and through her various alter egos she explores feminism, art and politics. The art project 365 porträtt av Jari, created between 2017 – 2019, consists of several works using multiple techniques such as film, music, comic strips, drawings and textile works. The project is a personal love story that also brings up questions about subject and object, the artist and the portrayed. About the privilege of being portrayed. Who is art meant to be about? Who can become an artist? Inspired by Picasso’s relationship with Jacqueline Roque, the artist’s final wife of whom he made a portrait once a day during a certain period, Brandelius depicts her husband Jari as a craftsman, a thinker and a musician. She is interested in exploring the slightly difficult and uncomfortable and in the everyday life – but does her model want to be at the mercy of the critical gaze of the observer?
