PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Björn Dahlem

Mare Lunaris
Dahlem has landed a spaceship in the Museum and is now extending his year-long involvement with astrophysical phenomena. He investigates them without resorting to the usual scientific processes. Instead, he uses ordinary materials to develop complex works which challenge ideas about sculpture while simultaneously attempting to build a bridge between art and physics. He has created atmospheric landscapes, which don‘t explain or represent anything but open up a space for individual discovery.
