What is the world coming to? Well, if you ask Joakim Eneroth the answer is bleak at best. He captures our growing fear, isolation and lack of trust in a series of images that at first strikes you as common and plain. But under the surface and beyond the first glance, you sense strange and highly neurotic vibrations. The naive struggle for increased security and comfort portayed in these images are either humorous or disturbing. In Swedish Red, Eneroth examines the idea of the home as a perfect place, where life is totaly comfortable and secure, how fear, or the need for security, easily evolves into deep isolation. The images tempt us, and tell us to mind our own business at the same time. Joakim Eneroth was born in 1969 and is based in Stockholm. His works are included in such collections as Tate Modern (London), Moderna Museet (Stockholm), The Brooklyn Museum of Art (NY), Houston Museum of Fine Art (Houston), Dallas Museum of Art (Dallas), MEP (Paris) and more. Eneroth received the prize Prix Voies Off in Arles in 2005. Swedish Red has been exhibithed in Paris, London, Berlin, Dallas, Stockholm, among other places.
