Charlotte Gyllenhammar Presentation of Works

May 11 — August 12, 2023


Charlotte Gyllenhammar’s (1963, Gothenburg) work explores power, vulnerability, and identity. Her breakthrough came in 1993 with the installation Dö för dig (Die for you) – a large oak tree hung upside down on Drottninggatan in central Stockholm. Since then, Gyllenhammar has produced work in several disciplines, including video, photography, and installation, but has truly excelled in the sculptural medium. She often revisits the same characters and motifs in her work, especially the child clad in a protective armour of overalls or the woman weighed down by layers of skirts and furs. While investigating deeply intimate themes, Gyllenhammar will often, as with her debut, literally turn these on their heads to force a new perspective onto the viewer.

Gyllenhammar studied at the Royal College of Art in London and the Kungliga Konsthögskolan in Stockholm. Her public works include the memorial for Raoul Wallenberg in Gothenburg, the sculpture Meteorite in Lund, the works &child and Mother in Malmö, and the monument to Dag Hammarskjöld in Uppsala. November 2022–March 2023 her solo exhibition Croiser/Korsa was shown at Prins Eugen Waldemarsudde. Gyllenhammar’s sculpture Untold was inaugurated in June on Royal Djurgården for the Princess Estelle’s Cultural Foundation.
