The Popular Workshop is proud to present “Lightning Appears For A Clear Sky”, opening July 20th, the first major American exhibition of Stockholm-based photographers Thobias Fäldt and Klara Källström. Noted as representatives of an emerging generation of European photographers, the artists and their collective works exist not only within a traditional realm of fine art, but also explore photojournalism, editorial publishing and commercial art.
Their trademark use of flash photography combined with their seemingly mundane subject matter and environment, results is an abstracted and inherently voyeuristic take on Swedish life. Subtle yet engaging, these lived experiences are decontextualized and presented in retrospect, creating a dream-like, non-linear narrative.
A selection of books, published by their own independent B-B-B-books publishing company, will be also included in the exhibition.
The pair have recently shown at Trafó, House of Contemporary Arts (Budapest). Additionally, Fäldt has a show at Galeria Plan B (Berlin), while Källström has exhibited at Swedish Museum of Photography (Stockholm), Institut Suédois (Paris), and has permanent artwork in the Stockholm subway
