Roland Persson’s Silicone Dreams: Art, Perception and Politics
2014 (English)In: The Phenomenon of Materializing a Dream / [ed] Roland Persson, Värmdö: Tarshish förlag , 2014, 50-56 p.Chapter in book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Roland Persson’s new exhibition, The Phenomenon of Materializing a Dream, is his most ambitious endeavour so far, with clear links to his previous work in silicone and yet displaying literally new dimensions. While Persson previously has shown objects, whether single, compounds or in series (flowers, mushrooms etc.), he now exhibits five full-sized rooms that you are invited to walk around in: floors, walls, a ceiling (in one of the rooms) plus a wealth of objects that he has fitted into them, all in silicone. As is often the case with Persson’s work, it is not a mere reproduction of things already known but the creation of another world, bearing a strange resemblance to things as we know them but distorted (in colour, in form) in different ways. The result is a shock on the senses, as one is virtually engulfed in this strange world.
