Best Before Collective
Iris Nelly Matilda Bengtsson (1992, Sweden) works with the relationship to memory and the borderlands between seriousness and play. Her works are often poetic with a fragile and embarrassing side. During the last years she has been working with scenography, narratives and improvisation of dialogues in an attempt to see how the vulnerability of childhood penetrates into one's adult life.
The musical presented at Supermarket 2023 is a personal timeline projected on the idea of the musical, as a meditation on how life fails us in our search for the epic.
Best Before Collective is a newly formed artist-run initiative based in Stockholm. We are a diverse group of artists, curators, art enthusiasts and other kinds of creators, with different backgrounds and knowledge. We want to use this wide range of abilities and learn from each other as we produce exhibitions and other arts activities together, with the aspiration to highlight art and artists that might not be shown in established galleries or institutions.
