From now on is a duo show with artists Linn Sjöstedt (SE) and Päivi Koskinen (FI) revolving around everyday’s repeating and absurdity. Their artistic practices meet in a reflection of the repetitive aspects of the human condition. Our habits, routines, promises, hopes and goals are here presented in a borderland between frustration and comic.
The title From now on refers to a promise of change and a fresh start in life, even though the consequences of it could mean a new constant. It is Monday’s new fresh hold of the week, or the inner decision to say “this shall become a new routine”.
