16 May 2018 — 03 Jun 2018
Jealous is proud to present ‘Stranger Danger’, a show that brings together, for the first time, the works of Swedish artist Joakim Allgulander and Dublin-based artist John Slade.
Joakim Allgulander is a Swedish sculptor, painter and ceramist born in Stockholm who lives and works in Gotland and London. Allgulander studied at Öland Folk School and the College of Arts in Stockholm. One of Sweden's most renowned contemporary artists, Allgulander creates work that evokes both emotion and curiosity. The work of Joakim Allgulander is characterized by a conceptual base, combined with the skill of craft and a love of the practical process. His work demonstrates a curiosity and desire to explore different media and techniques. There’s existential content and a dynamic play with contrasts throughout Allgulander’s work; everything from natural and artificial, new and old, to more archetypical opposites such as light and darkness, and life and death.
