Swedish House Mafia Art Exhibit “Purgatorium” Opens April 30 – May 5

Recommended Posts

Swedish House Mafia have announced a special exhibition of photography and film as part of their work with artist Alexander Wessely, following a teaser yesterday.

Swedish House Mafia – Purgatorium, opening at Stockholm’s centre for contemporary photography, Fotografiska, on April 30 – May 5, chronicles the trio’s journey of their “death to rebirth.” In other words, from their One Last Tour show at Ultra in 2013 to their reunion at Ultra in 2018. The exhibition opens ahead of the group’s sold out, back to back homecoming shows at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm over May 2, 3, and 4.

“Alexander has been able to follow our journey like no one else could. He sees, hears and interprets everything that we do, visually. His incredibly strong aesthetics are very near to our hearts and mirrors the journey of life almost perfectly” says Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell.

In Swedish House Mafia – Purgatorium, Wessely presents the trio through his unique spectrum where the dark, the bizarre, and the graceful meet. Purgatorium – the process of going through a tough, cleansing period filled with suffering that ultimately leads to development – is a true representation of where Swedish House Mafia find themselves at present.

“It has been a thoroughly organic and almost obvious process from the start. For me, Swedish House Mafia is about so much more than just three musicians. They are the definition of a cultural wave and have always explored ways to stretch the limits of what is possible. To be able to present this exhibition together with them at Fotografiska means so much” tells Alexander Wessely.
