AKROTERION with Anna Berglund
At Galleri Glas we will be showing new glass art by Anna Berglund together with her medallions made of folded paper that have not previously been shown to the public. The craft of paper-folding, is something that she has worked with for a considerable time but that she has developed during the Covid pandemic, at times when she has not had full access to the glass furnace.

The aesthetics of the 19th century together with their richness of design are constantly recurring features of Anna Berglund’s work. The portraits of terrines in blown and foliated glass which were one of the main features of Anna Berglund’s graduate show, together with a casket containing a variegated collection of table lamps or decorations, were purchased by the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm as early as 2006. Anna Berglund’s passion for luxurious decoration can be seen as a species of rebellious opposition to the restrained expression of minimalism as well as functionalism’s sententiousness and standardization.

Address: Nybrogatan 34, Stockholm
