About the exhibition Alchemy - The All-Seeing Eye (5 June-18 August):

For Per Svensson alchemy is “to walk your own path, to trace your own drawing, to not stop the poetry”. In his solo exhibition we are invited to follow him in the liberation from given systems through elements that have had multiple readings in different disciplines, religions and cultures across history. This exhibition was produced in collaboration with Färgfabriken, Stockholm.
