Helena Lund Ek — CELEBRATION

At the centre of me and you the heart beats. Inside the red flesh goes the pumping blue veins, which stretch along our whole body. The flesh and the love of life, which makes our heart go on, through the days of slumber, into the days of CELEBRATION. All along pumps the heart, until it stops and beats no more.

MEGA Foundation is proud to present Helena Lund Ek’s solo exhibition CELEBRATION—a feast and an energy swung from huge fabric-collages, through a glass-sculpture, and into intimate watercolours.
A future expressionism, where the brush stroke is coupled with a fine thread and where colours beat in vivid and resounding statements. Lund Ek’s work evolves around a language pertaining to the precarious ’I’ and its utterance in painting and the body, which it represents anew in every sensous encounter, in a tone that is both plaintive and ecstatic.

CELEBRATION is a juxtaposing continuation of her solo show the Loud wordless process at Johan Berggren Gallery in 2015. Lund Ek (b.1988, Stockholm) graduated from the National Academy of Fine Arts, Oslo in 2014. Her work concerns painting as a medium unto itself and also as installation and sculpture. This is the first time she has exhibited in Stockholm, where she now lives.
