Exhibition Leaflet

Transformation, a complex force resonating within every facet of our existence, carries multilayered significance waiting to be unfolded, whether it is embraced by imposition or desire. From There It Began offers a glimpse into unraveling some of these intricate layers by delving into the yearning for the past, anticipation of the future, and investigating narratives beyond dichotomies of mere before-and-after or simplistic either-or.

This exhibition brings together twelve student artists from four of Gothenburg’s art schools to reflect on the concept of transformation. Through their diverse media, each student brings forth a distinct narrative, capturing the essence of transformation—be it reshaping materials, personal metamorphoses, or societal changes, and beyond.


Participating student artists:

Dômen konstskola: Simon Gunnarsson, Naini Carrillo Martinat, Kim Simpson
Göteborgs Konstskola: Nadia Asp Zayed, Agnes Printz, Louise Hornberg
HDK VALAND: Hugo Hernqvist, Christian Abrahamsson, Ninni Nylén
KV Konstskola: Karoline Andersson, Lukas Andersson, Magnus Andreasson
