By assembling works of art that have their origins from both intimate as well as public spaces, Daniel Franzén attempts to merge different sets of values connected to various kinds of contexts. One clear example is his series of paintings titled Wallpaper (2020-2021). Created with materials such as old wallpaper, found scrap paper and leftovers from other artists’ works, these paintings form collages with multilayered provenances. One piece of wallpaper might be snatched from an abandoned house and another might be bought at a flea market. With this, each painting bears traces of stories of different times, individuals and spaces.
