Contemporary Art & Design presents Dan Wolgers


Dan Wolgers


Här slutar allmän väg (End of Public Road), a series of photographs executed between 1995 and 1998 and depicting the classic blue and white sign of the Swedish Road Administration agency, became Wolgers’ own personal stop sign. The message couldn’t be any clearer as the images were first presented in Wolgers’ 1995 exhibition at Galleri Lars Bohman. Wolgers has recounted how; “ – We never thought they would sell. They weren’t what you would call traditional artworks or photography – they hadn’t been lit or edited afterwards. But we sold it all. For example to the Public Art Agency Sweden”.
The series consisted of five different compositions, all with the blue and white road sign at their centre. What differentiated them was the surrounding nature, as they were all photographed at different places (mostly roads around the southern part of Stockholm). The images are today highly sought after by both collectors and institutions. They are included in, amongst others, Moderna Museet’s collections – who own the entire series.
