As Above So Below

Lisa Jeannin & Rolf Schuurmans and Cecilia Ömalm

16/05 - 14/10 2018

This summer’s exhibition at Kalmar konstmuseum will explore Christianity’s roots in alchemy and architecture.

The artist Cecilia Ömalm has taken a closer look at buildings of cultural significance in Småland and on Öland and created a new artwork specifically for the stairs at the museum.

Lisa Jeannin & Rolf Schuurmans are practicing alchemists, and their art stems from a passion for Hermetic art – that is, the practice of alchemy.

In As Above So Below, the magic we meet in the artifacts are not a coincidence, but a closely planned process. This becomes very clear in the collaboration between Lisa Jeannin & Rolf Shuurmans and The Glass Factory where glass is the material creating the basis for a new alchemic artwork.
