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 they invited Daisuke Takeya, an interdisciplinary artist based in Hayama/Ishinomaki in Japan, and Toronto, Canada. Takeya’s praxis comprises the exploration of nature and plausibility in contemporary society, and hinges on all kinds of double meanings. As a performance artist he has participated in numerous performance art festivals internationally.
