DAVID LARSSON - There was nothing else to do with the forest

2017

“There was nothing else to do with the forrest. The trees had to come down. The wood fires the furnaces, it melts the glass. It is used for the glass molds and the glassblowers tools, it shapes the glass. The hot glass burns the wood, shaping the wood just as the wood shapes the glass. Positive and negative form. The trees are cut down and the forrest is left with a void. The fire in the furnaces keeps on burning.”

David Larsson was born in 1981 in Uppsala and currently lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden. He completed his MFA at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm in 2012. In Larsson’s practice, objects play a central role as vessels for social and political histories, as well as circulation of affects. David Larsson has exhibited in solo exhibitions at Konsthall C, Stockholm (2017), Haninge Konsthall (2014) and BLOKK, Bergen (2013)

Larsson is one of Rejmyre Art Lab’s core members since 2012. He has made a series of installations at the site over the years.
