Färgfabriken presents a large retrospective exhibition with the works of artist, playwright and director Marianne Lindberg De Geer (b.1946), to open in May 2017. The exhibition, Full Speed Ahead shows an extensive selection of MLDG:s paintings, films, sculptures, collages and audio works, but also involves her as a playwright and as an active voice in contemporary debate.
MLDG:s public works has sparked debate. An example is her work Jag tänker på mig själv (I am thinking of myself) - Växjö, which portrays the artist naked in two versions, in an anorectic body and an overweight one - a sculpture that has been the target of vandalism several times. MLDG is just as noticed for the hundreds of collages with the same title, I am thinking of myself, which is an on-going project where the artist places herself in historical situations while simultaneously changing the meaning of the image.
MLDG will also be present in the exhibition program of artist talks and workshops, the program will be presented here during spring of 2017.
