"For All The Wrong Reasons" is an experimental and playful approach to the massively used & abused and also adored pop-culture-topic; Love Being a Loosing Game . Experimenting with various media such as readymades, photography, light and sound, Sofia Wickman works with space and narratives creating three different installations in the facilities of the gallery with the attempt to visualize experiences and state of mind.
Based in Malmö, Wickman is a Swedish multi-disciplinary audiovisual artist. She obtained a BA in Audio Visual Media at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie 2012. Has a background in Art History from the University of Lund. Together with Julia Zajac was project manager and curator for the visionary art and music project: FUTURE LEGENDS (2014-2015). Has screened in the UK, US, Italy and the Netherlands. Exhibited in various group shows in the US and Europe including her first solo in Amsterdam at the nomadic gallery The Office in 2013. Is currently part of the Galleri CC committee since 2015.
Wickman's work is inspired by human relations, love, loss and longing. The relationship between memory and time, places and people, nostalgic tendencies, Swedish melancholy and the contradictory nature of mankind.
