Oliver Sundqvist seeks to capture the energy of adolescence in each of his amorphous figures. This interplay has become characteristic of the artist’s practice, where in the past, he’s worked alongside fellow Danish sculptor, Frederik Nystrup-Larsen on objects that challenge consumerism in regards to overconsumption and questionable manufacturing processes. One can’t help but feel an inviting but strange vibe when viewing his work. At once jovial and unassuming, the sculptures take on a bizarre presence as you interact with them.
