Johnny Boy Eriksson

Boy Waz Here

October­ - December 2013

In cooperation with Wetterling Gallery, Creativity Unlimited produced the first public exhibition in Gothenburg featuring the works and spectacular installations of Johnny Boy Eriksson. It took place in an abandoned cinema in the city center, where parts of the huge room was turned into an equally fantastic and fascinating jungle of thorns, vines, trees, roses and monumental sculptures, some of them more than three meters high. This fantasy world – that brought to life visions of voodoo, the temples of Abu Simbel, and the unpenatrable jungles of an Indiana Jones film – was created on site by Johnny Boy Eriksson. The only material used to construct the installation was brown packing tape. The popular exhibition also included a video work and a number of additional sculptures made from the same material.
