NSFW/SVILOVA would like to invite you to the inauguration of our permanent exhibition space in Gothenburg with an exhibition by artist JOHAN ENGQVIST. After postponing the show twice (!!) because of covid related issues, we will finally open our doors!

Johan Enqvist is a visual artist based in Gothenburg. He is a graduated student from HDK-Valand Academy of Arts and Design and has a BFA from Umeå Academy of Fine Arts. While Johan’s medium of choice is painting, his practice also involves installation. His work examines the relationship between abstraction and decoration as well as the connection between fine arts and applied arts.

Engqvist has previously exhibited at Schimmel Projects Art Centre in Dresden, Galleri CC in Malmö, Galleri Thomassen in Gothenburg & Boy Konsthall in Bollebygd among others.

The exhibition is accompanied by a text by art critic Sara Arvidsson, which is available both in Swedish and in English! Sara Arvidsson is a freelance art critic based in Gothenburg who writes regularly for Göteborgs-Posten and other newspapers in Sweden. She also frequently writes catalog texts and essays.
