Lukas Troberg - About
As a former graffiti writer, I have a strong interest in subverting or challenging existing systems. Rules or laws are something that should be used as material to be modified, interpreted, or even overturned.
The topics of ownership, identity, and rebellion are at the heart of my creative practice. A conceptual construction is visualized using words, lines, and shapes, providing depth and interconnecting these topics.
Works like 'WHAT IF GOD WAS WRONG' aim to highlight space through an architectural approach, covering the whole sphere surrounding them.
Using industrial materials like e.g. basement lamps for ‘SORRY (to J)’ and glossy car paint on the ‘buffs’ sculptures underlines the calculated connection between the inviting first and the deciphering second glance.
Each work contains a pre-established path, a dramaturgy that the audience traverses. In this carefully conceived construction, chance does not occur.
