Joakim Eneroth (SE)
Joakim Eneroth was born in 1969 and his work has been exhibited internationally in a broad selection of solo and group shows. He is the recipient of numerous grants and awards and he is represented with his art work in large museum collections such as: Tate Modern (London), Brooklyn Museum of Art (New York), Moderna Museet (Stockholm), Houston Museum of fine art, Dallas Museum of art, MEP (Paris), Frank Suss Collection (London), Deichtorhallen (Hamburg), Art Foundation Mallorca, (Andrax) and others.
In Whispering Void Joakim Eneroth investigates the question of how to reveal the subconscious layers and patterns of our human experience. The photographic artwork makes visible the dance of notions and perceptions in the fluctuating mind. The reflections usually revolve around how to distinguish the mental projections from reality itself. Awareness, consciousness and mind are base-themes that unite in Eneroth’s work.
The exhibition comprises three series of works –or parts- revolving around one same theme. The first part explores the subject from an Eastern philosophical point of view; the second part, comprehends an exploration from a Western psychological perspective combined with a contemporary neuroscience approach. Lastly, the third part investigates the differences between those two points of view.
With each new series the artist explores a new aspect of consciousness and the boundaries where our inner and outer worlds meet. This art exploration has led Eneroth to develop new techniques such as levitating sculptures made of electromagnets and three-dimensional hologram photographs, all of them manifesting the shifts and movements of the transparent mind.
The American video artist Bill Viola described Joakim Eneroth’s art work as: “Joakim Eneroth’s work is the vivid record of a personal journey to uncover the fundamental emptiness that lies beyond and beneath our day-to-day experience of the world… The result is a profound meditation on impermanence and emptiness in contemporary life, and the fullness that emerges within us when our inner mirror is finally polished and the clutter long blocking our vision is cleansed.”
Joakim Eneroths art books have been published with prestigious publishers such as Steidl and Power House Books, and a number of Eneroth´s artwork shown in the exhibition have been sold for high prices at auction houses around the world. The Swedish National Television (Kulturnyheterna) has made two different reportage about this exhibition when it previously has been shown, both TV reportage can be found on the link below: https://www.joakimeneroth.com/tv
