A red garnhög on the floor, the small unassuming. It must mean something. The title, of 60 metres, giving a small hint. 60 metres, the terrible distance, the school forced us to run. 60 metres, nowhere near as grand as the Walter de Maria buried kilometres. A casual style, length, even banal. If it were not that it is there, as yarn.

Maria lindberg's the large retrospective at Malmö konsthall, should not go anywhere past. Here are collected her early paintings, her conceptual works and, above all, a great variety of drawings. We have to do with a Fluxus-inspired artist who often find themselves on the razor-sharp border between annoying vardaglighet and ingenious observations.

A dog thunders around among the empty pet-bottles, klånk klånk it sounds, it is hollow but soft, the dog can never get enough of the pointless game that is filmed with the little shaky hand-held camera. Klånk klånk, the title of the work is Work (2002) and the lack of forward motion, idea and productivity is as apparent as the idea that work might be, exactly like this: without meaning to, but with joy.

Or what Maria Lindberg now mean. It is truly exciting with her art is that it is so difficult to pin. A lot of humor, a few doses of sadness. A peculiar kind of freedom that is lurking in the gap between the title and the picture, or in the void that occurs in the short circuit.

There are plenty of playful winks to the Magritte and his pipe – the art and the image is not reality. Gatstenen lying on the floor is said to want to become a mountain again, just like the paper wants to be a tree. Lindberg occupying the materials and make them to their.

well done konceptverk that Lindberg worked with early in his career appear overall in the stands. She then sent including reklamationsbrev to various food manufacturers, claiming that she found different äckligheter, and got a polite letter back. The work is tillkommet long before everyone started lying criss-cross, is something of a hunch.

Svarsbrevens correct and friendly, the somewhat austere tone becomes involuntarily comical, but the witness still on a civilized world. Chaos is the neighbor with the order, ”Ha Ha Ha” it says in a molnformation on the wall. The title? To have, of course.
