More information

Emanuel Röhss (b. 1985, Sweden) completed his MA at the Royal College of Art, London. Currently an artist in residence at FAAP, Sao Paulo, Röhss has shown with Carl Kostyál, Lodnon and Sotckholm; Thielska, Index Art Foundation and Issues in Stockholm; T293, Naples; Postcodes, Project Native Informant, London and Casa do Povo, Sao Paulo.
Emanuel Röhss’ series, ‘Mother Sweden’, enters the conversation of representation and reproduction. Using the architectural source of his mother’s home in Sweden, the panelled paintings take visual information from the house and its interior, building up gradual layers of colour, extracting and conceptualising the image to create a ‘portrait’ of the home observed. The original interior of his mother’s home is transformed and dislocated into a new environment, becoming its own form of interior as the works simultaneously become part of the décor. Similarly, the sculptures, which began as small lawn features found in his mother’s garden, have been cast, enlarged, distorted and transformed into man-sized ornaments completely removed from the original, yet serving a related purpose.
