Interview wil collage artist Martin Cederlund

‘There is a “pink elephant” in the room and nobody wants to talk about it: death, the imminent end of existence.’ It’s with this poem from Margarita Quinteros that Martin Cederlund describes his art which is a dialogue with the society to which he belongs. In his own language, the artist exposes a critique of this nowadays society that is often a message of irony. With his art, he wants to express his disappointment of seeing that important things in life like the justice and the purity are behind cultural masks.
