Maria Nordin

The Body’s Fragile Shell

The exhibition was on display during the summer of 2000 and has been extended.

“The old-world body is linked to the cosmos. The new-world body is autonomous, but alone,” as ideas historian Karin Johannisson wrote. Nature and culture come together in portrayals of the body. The human body is also the starting-point for Maria Nordin’s creation. Her art depicts the body as the literal human shell, but also as a container for everything that is individual within us. The exhibition presents Maria Nordin’s latest paintings, which show the shell and surface, but is about making the invisible, visible.
