UPDATE: It’s Official
Swedish House Mafia – Purgatorium exhibit will take place from 4/30-5/5. The exhibit is described as “between heaven and hell”. Tickets are 165kr and you will also get access to exclusive SHM merch as well! Read more about it here.
“When Swedish House Mafia returns from the dead, they do it with love for the process they’ve been through, one that has resulted in great art. Not just new music but also an exhibition of photography and film made by the artist Alexander Wessely. Now opening at Fotografiska 30th of April – 5th of May with twelve pictures and a film projected on the walls, during the intense week when SHM perform at their sold out concerts in Stockholm.”
It’s hard to believe but Swedish House Mafia are just weeks away from their long-awaited performance together in Stockholm, Sweden. As fans attempt to hold their excitement for a bit longer, the trio are not taking a break from teasing upcoming surprises. In the past couple days, three symbols (seen above), were posted on the official SHM pages. After a little research, fans recognized the symbols from an art exhibit and photography gallery named Fotografiska.
An art gallery may seem odd but SHM has been heavily using visual pieces in their teases. Most importantly, the caption on the Facebook post listed “30.4 – 5.5 2019”, which many believe is the duration of the exhibit during their Stockholm shows May 2,3, and 4. The theme of “rebirth” has also often been associated with the SHM comeback. Perhaps, the exhibit will showcase their journey from past to present.
Swedish photographer Alexander Wessely has been a major contributor to the SHM comeback. His work as their Creative Director is nothing short from thought-provoking, moving, and inspiring. Just today, he posted to his Instagram story a video of a poster being revealed (Below). In bold letters, we see Swedish House Mafia, along with Wessely’s name underneath. The Fotografiska logo is also clearly visible in the bottom right corner along with a Limited Edition caption underneath the print.
We can’t wait to find out what the exhibit will showcase leading to the first show. If you’re planning to be in the area, be sure to check out the gallery. We’re positive attendees will be able to purchase limited edition artwork and perhaps meet the trio before the first show! Stay tuned for any related news in the near future!
