In Stories As An Opposite To Despair, a solo-exhibition by Swedish artist Nadine Byrne, mythology is broken down to its bare essentials: stories that function as an aid to understanding the incomprehensible and sometimes painful. Trough textile and ceramic sculptures, Byrne showcase an abstract and subtile narrative that is based on personal experiences transformed into mythology.
Nadine Byrne, born 1985 in Stockholm, is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice investigates hidden domains of the human psyche, ritual, and the esthetics of faith. She utilizes this trough film, objects, drawings, sound and textile-works. She is a member of the critically acclaimed duo Ectoplasm Girls (with sister Tanya Byrne). She has exhibited and performed in places like Milano, Rio de Janeiro, Bilbao and Brussels.
