The possibility to visualise change is continuously fascinating to Hagdahl and he has rigorously pursued projects that in varying ways investigate both material and immaterial processes. In Liquids, Hagdahl returns to an exhibition scenography that has become a classic in his œuvre, with a long sculpture placed close to the floor that intersects the space and acts a point of departure for numerous images and objects – sculpture, projected images and animations, painting, works on paper and photography.
Liquidsdeals with changes and transformations of emotions and states of mind within individuals as well as within larger communities. The apparently stable is transformed into the ephemeral and the volatile, thus question this very dichotomy. Liquids simultaneously explores and exposes the construction of complex systems, systems that in turn reflect connections and interdependencies of contemporary society.
