Per Svensson, born and based in Gothenburg, Sweden, is a diverse artist who works in the fields of sculpture, painting, drawing, sound installation, film, and architecture. This book is published in conjunction with the exhibition ‘Alchemy – The All Seeing Eye’ at Färgfabriken, situated in Lövholmen, an industrial district in Stockholm. Svensson was based there for a number of years and has close ties to the area. His universal alchemical installation trickles through the now defunct factory. Using architectonic installations, video projections, diverse artefacts, drawings, and sounds, Svensson transforms Färgfabriken into a magical place, a portal into another dimension.
