Anna Sjödahl

The artist Anna Sjödahl often took as her artistry a starting point in everyday life – its problems or its dreams. Through art, Sjödahl questioned norms and society's conventions, often with a certain undertone of humor. The exhibition was, of course, shown the painting Vår i Hallonbergen, 1972, with Munch's figure from Skriet teasingly placed in a concrete suburb – an image of the isolated toddler mother and suburban prince who has almost become an icon for the 1970s. It was also the work selected for the exhibition poster. The retrospective exhibition ranged from the clearly political works of the 1960s and 1970s across the landscapes to the more abstract paintings of recent years.
