“If you deal with beauty nowadays, you will inevitably end up close to kitsch. Certainly, in love, we inevitably turn into clichés every now and then (…) Enhörning seems to have the capacity, if only for a moment, to both sincerely feel the power of such images and accept it as cringeworthy. It is like every one of her pictures is made twice, in two different moods.”
Art-critic Lars-Erik Hjertström Lappalainen in his opening essay to Agape.
Agape is artist and photographer Louise Enhörning’s latest publication. It’s a meditation on love of different kinds; a series of photographers shot as “self-portraits” from 2016 to 2019. The title references the Greek term for a form of non-romantic love, affection, charity. Twelve of the photographs are exhibited at Loyal Gallery in Stockholm from today, 22 August until 21 September.
