Patrick Nilsson – Refreshments could be found next door

SEPT 23 – OCT 13, 2010

Patrick Nilsson’s new works deal with dark and violent aspects of everyday life. Nilsson’s drawings show various scenes often of a seemingly banal nature. The works deal with the breaking of taboos, the creeping banality of violence, our heightened fear of moral degradation, but also our desensitization to it. Loaded heavily with black humour, it lays bare the everyday thoughts that we do not speak for fear of breaking with social convention, or worse, thoughts we dare not verbalise
out of fear of conflict.
