Skogens Konung is a one-day off-site exhibition located in Kålltorp by the  small swamp Groddammen. 

This forest-area, close to the city and populated with everyday exercisers  walking their dogs up and down the hills, meets the mythological forest in  which strange creatures and forces roam. A seraph, animated by modern day technology, appears at a car crash. A worm-human hybrid is caught in between stages of being. 

“Skogens Konung” means “King of the forest” and could be the title of a  tarot card or a mythological character but is actually taken from Paradise  Hotel. The exhibition address stories and aesthetics through which we  connect with the forest. These are shaped by myths as well as online  photo-circulation and TV-shows.
 
The exhibition features several faces, merging with the forest or  connecting with it through a cottage-core fantasy, and the human here  becomes as haunting a presence as the mythological. 

The exhibition consists of sculptural works in a variety of materials and  techniques including bird taxidermy, tin, wood, steel and fabric, plus photo.
Works by: Klara Ström, Hanna Antonsson, Rasmus Dominika Rosgaard and  Maja Lindberg Schwaner
