Imagine a world filled with colourful creatures floating around in an orange sky. A world where you can dance the night away in a circus, with muscular full-bread stallions trotting around wearing clown’s masks…Encounters with hybrid Formula 1 hammerhead sharks and a girl with hair from head to toe whom tenderly touches your hand… This is not a dream!

Fantasy island -exhibition Robinson shows the work by 13 international artists.

On the surface these artists seem to invite us to wander around in their fantasy-world. When we take a closer look though, there seems to be more than meets the eye. This often bizarre universe appears to be constructed by the artist through a serie of rewritten laws of nature.

Have we discovered an individual paradise or are we taking an amazing survival-trip?

About HOME

HOME is the leitmotiv by which we encourage conversation about conceptions regarding belonging, representation and identification. HOME is a fundament, the place you return to and anchorpoint for the journey onward. HOME (offline as well as online) is the start of feeling connect to others. Under the name HOME we also present exhibitions in the showroom of MAMA. In collaboration with young makers we express interpretations about HOME | IN REAL LIFE | NETWORKS.
