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 audiences and is active in international networks with a focus on developing the artist-run sector.
For this year’s exhibition during Supermarket 2021 Candyland invited Emelie Markgren, a painter and performance artist based in Hälsingland, 300 kilometres north of Stockholm. Emelie Markgren lets her pictures change stories. She works with fragments of recognition that when weighed against each other highlights the non-figurative. The viewer's gaze can wander freely over the surface.
