"Cecilia Lundqvist and Magnus Thierfelder"
2002-04-06 until 2002-05-05
Index - Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation
Stockholm, , SE

From completely different motives, the art of Cecilia Lundqvist and Magnus Thierfelder challenges the kind of superficial, traditional demarcations that surround drawing as a means of expression. Together their art creates a composite image of the media’s possibilities: they have been chosen to exhibit together at Index not because they complement each other, but rather because their work unobtrusively ‘shadows’ the other’s artistry.

Index has previously shown work by Cecilia Lundqvist in the group exhibition ‘On Their Own’ (2000) – a thematic show covering artists’ solitary and subjective methods of working. In Cecilia Lundqvist’s case, this method continues to be the process of animation, first with all the hallmarks of hand-made drawings, to then be digitally manipulated in an animation program where one drawing is related to another in order to create a whole narrative. These are tales of human relationships, about relations between people, or alternatively the solitary individual’s inner machinations with his or her self. And Cecilia Lundqvist is definitely not shy about bringing up life’s darker and more destructive sides. The ‘Emblem’ film (2001) showing at Index, is included in a retrospective program about the artist organised by Moderna Museet, 7 May, as part of the contemporary film and video series. Cecilia Lundqvist graduated from Konstfack, Stockholm, in 1999.

Magnus Thierfelder’s art combines a strict, reduced design with an ingenious spatial conceptuality. He is showing two works at Index, comments on the actual physical conditions of the exhibition space that sparsely accommodate themselves within the very same architecture. Magnus Thierfelder’s art is stylised and graphically evident, giving the impression, in part, of approaching a careful abstraction and in part, a careful figuration, striving to, in the artist’s own words, “show the importance of the unessential”. Besides these spatial works, Magnus Thierfelder is also exhibiting drawings in the Index library, a one of a kind artist’s book. This is Magnus Thierfelder’s debut exhibition in Stockholm. He graduated from Konsthögskolan, Malmö, in 2001.
