Klara Lidén’s solo exhibition at WIELS is her first institutional presentation in Belgium. It comprises new and existing works in a range of media, with an emphasis on video and installation. Occupying the first floor gallery spaces, the exhibition is structured to create a variety of tempos, drawing the visitor slowly into Lidén’s intense interior world.
Lidén’s work provokes a search for adjectives, which might at first seem contradictory: violent yet reticent, humorous yet painful, personal yet universal. Influenced by street art, informed by conceptual art, and tinged with vandalism, her creative process takes many forms. Her materials are taken from her immediate urban environment and her subjects from her own experience of living as an individual in a crowd.
Founded in Stockholm in 2006, Tvillingarna have worked together with Klara Lidén to make the music for several of her videos. Their first single, The Future Master, was released by record company “Du och Jag och Askar Brickman.”
