Johanna Gustafsson Fürst art touches on the connections between social systems and individuals. The practice is characterised by dialogue: with materials, spaces, other professional groups, poetry, colleagues and places. The attempt to understand complex contemporary events and social relationships is embodied in sculptures and installations. She has extensive experience of working in public spaces and her practice is rooted in site specificness, self-organisation and social processes. Consequently, Accelerator has invited Gustafsson Fürst to a dynamic exhibition format that allows change. In the development of "Graft the words, whip my tongue", she has been concerned with how power is exerted through language and the relationship between language and body.

Saturday 18 January at 1 pm, circa 45 minutes.
A conversation between Johanna Gustafsson Fürst and curator Therese Kellner.

Admission free, no booking required.

The artist talk will be held in Swedish in Accelerator's foyer. The café will be open during the event.
