När vi döda vaknar
Johan Svensson

The title, When We Dead Awaken, comes from Ibsens play with the same title and associates partly to a notion of consumer culture as a doomed culture, but also to that something new and unexpected is waiting to take over. Partly it refers to both zombie movies and to the Bible, where the people are predicted to be awakened on Judgment Day, and, resurrected.

About the artist

Johan Svensson

Johan Svensson (born 1971), lives and work in Stockholm, Sweden. Education: Umeå Art Academy and Malmö Art Academy. Johan Svensson work with a lot of different technics; sculpture, installations, drawing, text and animations. The symbolic infrastructure that Johan Svensson´s work feeds of is reality through the myths generated by our political landscape. His work is characterised by the fact that it redraws this landscape, its characters and more importantly its horizons. Irony plays an important part, not just in the final resolution of his installations, but in the way he selects and treats his themes.
