Johan Bergström Hyldahl, MARKET Art Fair, Stockholm, 17-19 September 2021

I started my journey with only the stars to light the narrow path ahead of me, but it is getting brighter now. My faithful horse is trotting along the winding trail, steadfast over the rocks and roots. I can feel her warmth underneath me, as I clutch her mane. I feel the weight of my gently swaying sword in my left paw. Lifting it up, I see my reflection in the polished steel. My blue fur is illuminated by the rising sun. I shine in pink and orange hues, mountains towering behind me. It is beautiful. I look like a hero on fire. I am above the clouds. I see the top of the mountain ahead of me. In the valley on the other side is everyone I love. Between us await the two lurking beasts that have tormented us for far too long.

Cecilia Hillström Gallery is pleased to present Above the Clouds, a new body of work by Johan Bergström Hyldahl for Market Art Fair 2021, consisting of digital animated sculptures and three-dimensional backlit animated pictures. Join us in booth 4 at Liljevalchs, Djurgårdsvägen 60, 17–19 September!
