Wood (or how I learned to grow)

Oscar Häggström

Wood (or how I learned to grow) is Oscar Häggströms’s solo exhibition inspired by fantasy and rave culture, which deals with themes surrounding meritocracy and the different mindsets it evokes.

"After days of wandering in the woods, our hero meets the witch of knowledge. Can she help our hero to turn to the right course of society? Be a great example and at the top of the game."

Oscar Häggström was born in 1993 in Gothenburg, Sweden and currently study his MFA at Umeå Academy of Fine Arts.

Work includes VR, film, animation, sound and sculpture in installations settings.

His practice circles around the existential question of where the body begins and technology ends in everyday life.
