Interferences, 2018, Konstnärshuset, Stockholm
Interferencesconsists of two mental map images, two parallel paintings with projections. These create a form of monumental flow charts over inner and outer movements, and the commentaries that can arise when the media flow encounters the individual’s own associations and references. The installation also visualizes the contradictory interpretations that can arise in the encounter between the public and the private.
Hagdahl’s art is often comprised of interdisciplinary and poetic renditions in the charged field between contradictions, events and circumstances – where the character of the site as well as the current situation are important components and starting points. A common theme throughout Hagdahl’s oeuvre has been the attempt at portraying the unstable and transient, where every description or construction is directly dependent on courses of events and reflections both outside and inside the viewers themselves.
