Through her artwork Elmira Abolhassani (Iran/Portugal) try to understand how human networks and Identities are formed and what their underlying structure is. Her works and thoughts stem from her belief that, in order to meaningfully apprehend significant aspects of our world, we must first attain a clear vision of ourselves. Abolhassani will be creating new work for the upcoming exhibition Young & Loving!


Tone Linghult (Sverige) wants to make feeling visible and give them a physical form. Through experiments with materials she finds many of her ideas and results. Looking at the qualities of the materials and how they can be combined. During the last couple of years, she has found various ways to form glass using mesh as a mold. The mesh gives structure and colour to the glass. The glass becomes the body and the mesh its skin.  Linghult will also be showing new work created in S12 in Young & Loving!
