Ludvig Perés will walk you through his exhibit Klärobskyr that opened today.
Klärobskyr is the Swedish word for the Italian Renaissance style of painting chiaroscuro, which translates to a combination of the words light and dark. The Swedish word, however, translates to the combination of the words clear and obscure. I play with the meaning of these words, while at the same time giving a small glimpse into the big fascination Swedes seem to have with America and the American culture. Born in 1993 in Borlänge, Sweden, Ludvig Perés currently lives in Chicago where he is in his third year of photographic studies at Columbia College Chicago. In the fall of 2018 his work was featured in the exhibition “Fotografiska Talent 2018” at the Swedish Museum of Photography. Ludvig’s work explores the powerful relationships between shadow and light, specifically the metaphorical aspects that play upon our unconscious psyches.
