The Skellefteå Art Gallery

Norrland. The vast landmass that covers 60% of the surface of Sweden and is home to 12% of its population. Norrland is often said to consist of wilderness. Wasted space and government subsidies. But Norrland is also a force of nature. An enabler. Yes, the image of the north is as broad as it is contradictory. And that is the backdrop for this summer’s large exhibition at the Skellefteå Art Gallery.
