Rakel Bergman Fröberg
"The (un)sensed insides of surrounding beings; from light to darkness and back again."
Adaptations of memories and remembrances, both near and far, self-perceived or captured, are central themes for Rakel Bergman Fröberg. She is interested in animals and animal behaviour and the encounters that arise in the human-animal, animal-animal, body-space and predator machine collisions.
Woodcut is the technique that the artist regularly uses. Through the lines, she conveys the constantly ongoing stories – from life to death to life again. The works can be seen as investigations of a power play in which different layers of both submission and control are exposed: a constant questioning of everyday things and incidents in order to increase the power of the grip on reality. Rakel Bergman Fröberg is interested in asking questions, but not always in giving simple answers.
