Likt en droppe vatten i en bergsspricka, tränger vi oss in i de svåra frågorna. Vi är kapillär­kraften själv, i flytande form rör vi oss med ömtålig sprängkraft. Vi sipprar nedåt i mörka myllor. Till själva rötterna letar vi oss för att ge omsorg åt det som vill växa ur dem. Art Lab Gnesta är i ständig förändring men samtidigt orubblig. Vi experimenterar fram nya alternativ i nutid och framtid(er). Genom den konstnärliga tanken och det konstnärliga arbetet är vi en plats för sorgearbete, lek och motstånd.

Like a drop of water in a rock crevasse, we permeate the difficult questions. We are the capillary force itself, in liquid form we move through a fragile explosive force. We seep down into dark soils. We seek for the roots themselves to take care of what wants to grow out of them. Art Lab Gnesta is constantly changing but is, at the same time, unshakable. We are experimenting with new alternatives in the present and the future(s). Through the artistic thought and the artistic work, we are a site for mourning, play and resistance.

Welcome to Art Lab Gnesta!

Our home is the old brewery in Gnesta, where we work in residency studios, a risograph studio, a large greenhouse, a wasteland, workshops and gallery rooms. We do exhibitions, publications, talks, interventions and other events both in the brewery, in public space and with our collaborating partners. In our residency program, artists are invited to produce new artworks that cultivate discussions about our present and its possible future(s).
