Tiger Strikes Asteroid Los Angeles

Opening: Saturday 8 July, 7-10 pm

Performance and seance: 6.30 and 9 pm - Maria Norrman, Altar for Mae West (15 min)

Tiger Strikes Asteroid Los Angeles is pleased to present Växa, a group exhibition of work by  artists from Sweden, Denmark, Iceland and Iran. Växa is the Swedish word for growth. It can be biological growth, like when plants grow or how an artificial intelligence expands on the internet. It can also be personal growth, or how a person can grow; possibly beyond the limits of this realm.

Each of the artists approaches growth individually as a subject or concept which translates across mediums such as video, performance, sand drawings, painting and sculpture. This creates new exchanges between the works, which with common threads reach out to each other, forming new connections.

The exhibition includes the artists Emm Berring, Arngrimur Borgthorsson, Maja Gade, Johan Lundin, Bahareh Mirhadinezhadfard, Ina Nian, and Maria Norrman. They are members of Galleri CC, a non-commercial, artist-run gallery located in Malmö, Sweden.

The exhibition is part of the ScandiLA exchange program between Swedish run project spaces and Los Angeles run art spaces. Earlier this summer artists from Tiger Strikes Asteroid Los Angeles have exhibited in Galleri CC in Sweden. For more information on our exchange, check us out on Instagram @scandila_exchange
