NARRATOR'S FESTIVAL: TOGETHER AGAIN - NEW EXHIBITION IN THE MEIJER COLLECTION

Skellefteå

The exhibition title Together Again refers to the pandemic that now prevails and how quickly it has affected our lives and existence. Only a hundred years ago, nature was seen as an unlimited resource that was not significantly affected by human stress, but in recent decades it has become clearer that modern technology is straining our natural resources and that this will ultimately hit us. The realization of the important role of man in his interaction with nature has led to humanity now being at a turning point. A crisis that forces us to create new ways of thinking together and challenge the old ones.

Art has always arranged, interpreted and defined nature. In Sture Meijer's world of images, there is an investigation of natural and human processes in different times and spaces, nature's own freedom and recovery, the movement of people and animals through inner and outer landscapes, fictional or identifiable.Meijer's paintings can be seen as a metaphor for the relationship between man and his innermost being but also between man and nature. The threat to nature and therefore also the threat to humans is often present and it is clear that Meijer has given a lot of thought to ecological and societal issues that affect our environment and the climate change we are facing.

The Meijer collection is an extensive and growing donation to Skellefteå municipality by the artist Sture Meijer (born 1931) from Kåge, Skellefteå. The art collection is managed by Skellefteå Art Gallery and shows Sture Meijer's activities as an artist for sixty years, from the early sixties to today, and contains everything from oil paintings, gouaches, drawings, to sculpture and graphics. The collection, which amounts to about 200 works, is not static but is hung every three years, where in-depth studies with different angles and themes are achieved.
