Från presstexten:
By assembling works of art that have their origins from both intimate as well as public spaces, he attempts to merge different sets of values connected to various kinds of contexts. One clear example is his series of paintings titled Wallpaper (2020-2021). Created with materials such as old wallpaper, found scrap paper and leftovers from other artists’ works, these paintings form collages with multilayered provenances. One piece of wallpaper might be snatched from an abandoned house and another might be bought at a flea market. With this, each painting bears traces of stories of different times, individuals and spaces.

The site-specific work I´d rather be somewhere else (2021), made specifically for this exhibition, consists of three parts: a painting, a documentation video and a hidden installation adjacent to the gallery space. With respect for the artist’s wish to keep the work a secret, the hidden part will be revealed first during the official opening of the exhibition. All we can say now is that the vast installation was made one night after Franzén kindly asked us for a sleepover at the gallery. As it turned out, he had decided to literally puncture our beloved white cube…
