D.A.F.T. Related events & participants: THE (deviant) ART FESTIVAL in Trollhättan

Fred Lindberg started THE (deviant) ART FESTIVAL as a society and network of contemporary artists in London 2005. The thought behind these art events was to put people and ideas together rather than single pieces of art. To create a foundation for collaborations. In 1937 Hitler exhibited “Entartete Kunst”, 1962 came Fluxus events like “The Festival of Misfits” and today our Art is striving to exist in-between being singled out as a degenerate, or choosing to be a misfit.

Arboreal: to dwell in or frequent the woods.

Arboreal explores man’s interaction with the world and with one another, taking in consumerism, perceived social status, abuse, relationships and apocalyptic times. Humans are absent, their presence embossed through the use of structures, materials and the juxtaposition of the organic and synthetic.

Arboreal is not only concerned with the physicality and strength of the organic form but also how it can represent a deconstruction of the mind, a direct contrast when laid next to the formalities of the manmade world.

Lee Maelzer’s paintings explore contrasting representations of the apocalyptic sublime and the ordinary. They are filled with portent; describing with a certain amount of tenderness the fine line between everyday life and the end of the world.

Opening times: Fri – Sun 12-6pm
