Candyland is a non-profit exhibition space in Stockholm, founded in 2004. United by their common interest in promoting a wide variety of contemporary art, they have produced more than 180 exhibitions since they opened. Candyland serves as a local art platform with heterogeneous audience and active in international networks with focus on developing the artist-run sector.

For their exhibitions at Supermarket the Candylandians make collective decisions and this year they invite Mats Petersson, a photographer who has been following controlled burns of forest in South Sweden. A controlled burn, also known as hazard reduction burning, is a wildfire set intentionally for improving wildlife habitat and short term forage for grazing, but also to control tree disease, and to perpetuate fire dependent species.
