Intro
To make changes, to express joy or sadness, to speak up and highlight issues are ways to give different perspectives on life. The chosen artists for this exhibition are selected because of their very special ways of describing various content in life.

The title of the Gallery exhibition, PLATINA for pleasure, speaks of the most basic force that underlies the choices we make in life. The word pleasure describes the broad class of mental states that we experience as positive, enjoyable, or worth seeking. Many pleasurable experiences are associated with satisfying basic biological drives, but also social experiences and daily work. To make changes, to express joy or sadness, to speak up and highlight issues are ways to give different perspectives on life. The chosen artists for this exhibition are selected because of their very special ways of describing various content in life. They also play different roles in the curators' professional life.

Christer Jonsson was Sofia Björkman's professor when she graduated and received her master in fine arts. Aud Charlotte Ho Sook Sinding was an artist that early on made strong impact but tragically passed away too young. Most of the artists are based in Sweden, but the Gallery has always exhibited international artists. Andrea Wagner and Sofia Björkman met at a workshop in Holland and Mallory Weston from USA exhibited recently in the gallery in Stockholm.
