Over the Influence is pleased to present Swedish-born Los Angeles-based artist Camilla Engström’s debut exhibition in Hong Kong. In Emerging Passages, Engström invites viewers to join her in a meditation on rediscovering one’s sense of self throughout this universally transformative time. The exhibition is on view from 27 November 2021 to 8 January 2022.
As time turns, and society leaves pre-pandemic life farther and farther behind us, we also move away from who we once were. As the world we previously inhabited was demolished bit by bit, a new reality is emerging from the remains. Instead of mourning what was, Engström is in the process of exploring what now is.
In this exhibition, viewers are witnessing a rebirth. The artist is finding, and claiming a new voice both personally and in her practice. While maintaining her recognizable aesthetic, Engström leans away from her past bodies of work. Through earthly palettes and biomorphic landscapes, this series is an exploration of passages to new spaces that encourage all to examine how we might exist as the world evolves around us.
As an intuitive artist, Engström embarks on each work unplanned, yet through her inspiration she is able to create a cohesive body of work. Throughout this series, Engström has been particularly influenced by the human connection with the natural world, and how that might evolve over time.
