Exhibition Kanslibyrån - Center for troubled movements

Krognoshuset in Lund on February 24 – 2024

Vernissage Saturday 24 February at 13-16

At 14.00 on the day of the opening, the Chancellery will read from its Program Statement.

Kanslibyrån – Center for troubled movements For more than fifteen years, the Chancellery has waged a small-scale and persistent struggle in everyday life where society's ideals of rationality, obedience and efficiency are questioned on both a public and personal level. 

"Our upright limbs move compulsively in time, at given drum beats we change direction, take a step forward or raise our hands". We are synchronized to our surroundings and move in clear patterns, where each movement is performed at the right moment in the choreography. This rhythmic performance of our anatomy is both beautiful and dangerous, we don't have to worry about how our next movement will be executed, or that we will make an embarrassing misstep."

Here, the Kanslibyrån believes that an important countermeasure is to carefully nurture the irrational and consciously highlight a curious and naive look at the environment. Small-scale interventions, imaginative sorting or the invention of one's own symmetries become a form of long-distance mental training. The agency's alternative structure for everyday life constitutes a ritual safeguard against our current production-oriented paradigm. 

In the exhibition Center for Restless Movements Kanslibyrån shows a large selection of photographs of documented objects and actions as well as a brand new sculptural installation. In the basement, you can take part in an interactive work created together with the artist Lars Noväng. 

The law firm is Per-Arne Sträng (b.1976) and John Huntington (b.1981).
