The Abyss Festival Art Exhibition consists of a variety of artworks carefully selected as they all in a physical, brutal and visual manner affects one’s senses in an equally direct manner as if one is listening to a guitar riff by Tony Iommi himself.
For the artist and curator Josefine Östberg Olsson, it is the inherent darkness that unites the artistic expressions. Obscene gestures, kisses and punches, studs, leather, intestines and skins. Different expressions being twirled together, forming a tangled ecosystem to exist within rather then occurring as separate artworks.
