’Fermenting’, Galleri Magnus Karlsson, Stockholm, Sweden. 9.4­15.5 2016.

”We have the pleasure to present Sara­Vide Ericson’s fourth solo exhibition in the gallery; Fermenting. The exhibition features paintings made in the last year. The work of the exhibition coincided with the artist moving back to her former home in Hälsingland, Sweden. In the encounter between the past and the present, she has found material for her new works. It’s a personal settlement with her roots and the unraveling of previous generations. She has among other things used stolen clothes and inherited objects when staging her tableaus in “sacred” places. By making use of a performative and more intuitive method where an event is recreated or rather lived, she has experienced a greater freedom of work and challenged herself. In the exhibition catalog journalist Sanna Samuelsson writes about her meeting with Sara­Vide and her art.

Sara­Vide describes painting as a transformative act, where things take shape, and at the same time are given prolonged life, contrary to the photographs she takes during the work process, that she sees merely as snapshots of a course of events, as frozen moments.
“When I paint, the mental space I occupy starts of as a dark room where the light slowly intensifies as the work progresses. I eventually see the situation and location more clearly, and can see beneath the surface. If I paint it, this continues to happen. It’s like exhaling into a glass, and the breath is still there in the form of condensation. This is where the feeling is. The image doesn’t exist until I paint it.”
From the text Heavy Water by Sanna Samuelsson.
(translated to English by Richard G. Carlsson)

Sara­Vide Ericson was born in Hälsingland in 1983, where she has now returned to live and work. She studied at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm (2003—2009), and received much attention for her graduation show She Wolf at Galleri Mejan, Stockholm (2008). The collaboration with Galleri Magnus Karlsson started with a solo presentation, Ride, at Market Art Fair in Stockholm (2010). She has since then had two major exhibitions, Liar (2010) and While Unconscious (2012) and a smaller, The Basement Drawings (2013), in the gallery. The film, Sara­Vide Ericson, where Jacob Frössén followed her work for several years, was broadcasted on Swedish national television (K Special) in 2014. In the fall of 2014 she had her first exhibition at the Danish gallery V1, Copenhagen, and in 2015 she began a collaboration with the New York gallery Albertz Benda, where she has participated in two curated group exhibitions, Empire of Senseless (2015) and Like­ness (2016). She has also exhibited at museums and art centers in Sweden and internationally. In 2011, she was chosen by the curators Robert Storr and Francesca Pietrapaolo to show in North by New York: New Nordic Art at Scandinavia House in New York. Right now there are a number of her works in the exhibition Luftslottet at Norrköping Art Museum, Sweden (until 28.8). As of 20.4, she participates in the exhibition Swedish Art: Now! at Sven­Harry’s Art Museum, Stockholm, which gathers the most promising Swedish artists of this moment.”
