"post - excavation" introduces three different practices by artists Emanuele Becheri, Dick Hedlund and Lea Porsager; all of whom force us to look closer, behind and beyond the artworks we are confronted with.

Emanuele Becheri´s two series, consisting of vinyl records and FRIEZE magazines, originate from the same location: 32a Penton Place, Southwark, London SE17 3JT, UK. As found and salvaged objects they murmur to the tune of music and art history. The magazines have as many readings as subjects present in the different issues: art world hype; dealer, collector and/or- artistic desires. While time has changed only the appearance of the magazines, it has changed both music and sound of the vinyl records; leaving behind only a distorted experience. Dick Hedlund creates a similar feeling of something belonging to the past with his worked canvases. By moving thread by thread on the grey surface, matter and depth become present. Hedlund’s sculptural work resonates the feeling of support, also found in Lea Porsagers’ massive installation "Celestial Body" (2011). The latter with its iron pillars dominate the room with their size. They not only act as a physical being in the gallery space, but also as an obstacle in thought. The piece governs our ability as viewers/visitors to experience the room and the work itself.

Becheri, Hedlund and Porsager propose the presence of activity. The result has ultimately left its mark.
