The exhibition features four contemporary painters, Shimon Minamikawa, Anna Schachinger, Lui Shtini, Kate Spencer Stewart, who engage with or put pressure on abstraction in painting today. Whether looking at its proximity to figuration, developing a specific personal language, exploiting its gestural and affective immediacy, or reducing it to its most basic mark-making components, the sum total of this group of artists demonstrates and revels in how far abstraction has come from its dogmatic origins and just how elastic it, as a term and form, has become.

Torbjørn Rødland's exhibition Fifth Honeymoon is a tightly composed exhibition, unfolding across the rooms of Bonniers Konsthall. With the contractual commitment of wedlock and the emotional trip of the honeymoon as metaphorical frameworks, the works tackle themes of religion, spirituality, eroticism and the spark that forms new human relations. Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm
