Galleri Andersson/Sandström is proud to present our first solo exhibition with Maria Friberg. Maria Friberg is part of the generation of artists that came up during the 90’s and was known as ‘the Nordic Miracle’. These artists were given a great deal of attention for their high artistic quality and today, Friberg is known as one of the foremost photographers and video artists of our country. The exhibition Piles of Dreams circles the theme of Man’s ruthless exploitation of Planet Earth, but also proposes the notion that Mankind has the possibility to create something beautiful from chaos; something constant from the destructive agenda of our age. The literal piles of “dreams” that Friberg depicts consist of drifts of mundane everyday material such as plastic toys, electrical cables or garbage that either creates a background to a portrait or a solitary suggestive landscape.
