The metaphorical repetition of the scene

Peter Dacke

Krognoshuset in Lund, January 13 - February 18, 2024

Peter Dacke is an artist and assistant professor at the Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management, SLU. Dacke was born in 1958, lives and works in Malmö. He works with a wide range of techniques such as drawing, sound art, objects, painting, installation, video, public works and since 2019 with the collaborative art project Konstkiosk, in the borderland between art and architecture, together with the artists Christel Lundberg, Juan Carlos Peirone and the architect Nicholas Hartman.

Dacke was educated at Malmö Art School Forum 1983 -1988, now Malmö Art Academy.

He has exhibited both nationally and internationally, including at Lunds Konsthall, Lund, Westwerk in Hamburg, Germany, Charlottenborg in Copenhagen, Denmark, Dimitris Pierides Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens, Greece and Kunsthalle Recklinghausen in Recklinghausen, Germany.

Peter Dacke is represented at Moderna Museet Stockholm, Malmö Art Museum, Malmö City and Helsingborg Museum. He has carried out public decorations for the School of Dentistry in Malmö, Maria Magdalena Church in Lund and Lund University of Technology School of Engineering, Campus Helsingborg.

He is a member of Aura's artist group. The current exhibition is his third at Krognoshuset since 1999 and 2010. Dacke's artistry is characterized by a curious and open commitment to society. He explores how artistic processes and the materiality of the works can evoke and highlight glimpses of historical events and how these are reflected and interpreted in the present. The exhibition at Krognoshuset shows newly produced works, drawings, small-scale paintings, and a larger spatial design in collaboration with the architecture of the three-story, medieval building.
