Barbro Westling and Peter Johansson have long experience with often grand productions that are both entertaining and provoking. Often involving an element of sly humour, the artists work raises questions about phenomenons in society, life and art.

The artists , who are based in Malmö in Sweden, now present their latest project in the exhibition Förspilld Ironi och andra skulpturer (Wasted Irony and other Sculptures), which opens at the Trondelag Centre for Contemporary Art on Friday 15th of April.

The project deals with questions of art and moral. It asks what can constitute art, areas of use and the roles art is given and also asks what meaning art has in our daily lives as well as in art itself.
'Garden art is ugly, art is nice, stealing is bad' to quote the artists.

The catalogue for the exhibition is free of charge, and contains a text by the journalist/writer Per Svensson, and ethnologist Eva Londos, in addition to a generous contribution by the artists.
