Solo Exhibition: Peter Linde Busk // Wanås, Sweden // May 7

SOLARIS

Wanås Konst presents Peter Linde Busk’s first outdoor sculpture. It’s a work with an outside and an inside, the shape is inspired by a pumpkin and the rituals associated with Halloween. The magical and fantastical interested Linde Busk, but in his version, the pumpkin becomes a white sculpture titled Solaris, 4 meters (13 feet) in diameter, that can be viewed as a sculpture or a space to be entered. The newly produced work is shown along with an exhibition of his paintings, reliefs, prints, sculptures and collage from 2015 on, giving insight into his multifaceted oeuvre.
Material development is a central element of Linde Busk’s practice using varying processes and media along with the desire to constantly learn new things are the driving forces when he approaches new artworks. For almost two years, he has produced recipes, materials, and techniques to make the large-scale sculpture in pulp, an effort combined with ever-present artistic questions. He has rejected traditional materials such as bronze and the typical substitutions, fiberglass, or epoxy materials such as resin, as these ages poorly and present all the environmental problems of plastic. The intricate surface of the sculpture is recognizable from his other artworks; he often blends figuration with the abstract, and frequently we see one or several characters in the center of a detailed, ornate background. Parts of previous works and leftover materials are often reused, finding their way into new artworks as parts of a relief or fantastic mosaics composed of unique pieces in a perpetually ongoing cycle.
Exhibition period runs from May 7 to September 4 2022
