Lap-See Lam: Tales of the Altersea

11 March - 28 May 2023

Lap-See Lam (* 1990 in Stockholm, Sweden) is an artist based in Stockholm, Sweden. Starting point for the exhibition is the singular story of the Sea Palace, a three-storey floating restaurant in the shape of a dragon that sailed from Shanghai to Europe in the early 1990s. After a series of unsuccessful ventures, the ship docked in the waters of Stockholm, finding a new purpose as a haunted house in the Gröna Lund amusement park. 

At the heart of Tales of the Altersea is the eponymous 8-channel video installation projected onto the walls and floors of the gallery, giving the sense of being inside a magic lantern. By employing the narrative strategies of magical realism, the artist interweaves complex mythologies with transnational experiences.
