Elis Eriksson was a Swedish artist and pioneer, who in his constant quest for knowledge created playful visual “systems” through painting, collage, and drawing. The seemingly non-stop stream of wordplay and ideas was inspired by contemporary thinkers such as Deleuze, Guattari, and the surrounding political cllimate.
The importance of observing his images today seems more urgent that ever; drawing inspiration from the humour and drive that his life work contains. The exhibited silverfoil picture is a sort of blueprint and call to cut it up, and fold it into a model. Represented at Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Malmö Konsthall, and Lars Bohman Gallery, Stockholm/Copenhagen
