‘PRINTS, BOOKS AND SOLITARY THINGS’ 

This is Cárdenas’ first solo exhibition in Sweden. The artist has had several solo exhibitions in South Korea and the U.S.A. in the last 10 years.

In this exhibition, the artist presents a series of etchings, artist’s books and objects made during the pandemic. Whether performing, making installations, objects, prints or artist’s books, the repetitive aspect of her process becomes a meditative ritual to explore the elemental uncertainty of time, space and being or social inequities with regard to gender, migrations or race. Thread, ink, fabric, metal and handmade paper are used in metaphorical ways, while honoring sustainability.

Some of the work included on this solo show (see featured image) is part of the online exhibition and book Net Gain: Experimenting with Geometrical Folding, organized by Central Booking NYC Gallery and Sarah Stengle as a pandemic invitational.
