The Table is Set delicately brings into conversation works by Julia Goodman and Albin Bergström. Arising from the context
of their shared studio space and a (literally) fruitful exchange over the years between both artists, The Table is Set is an intimate dialogue of artistic ideas and practices that stand at the intersection of societal con- structs of tradition, family ties and personal histories. In the gap between the intimate proximity and divergences of their work we hear the faint chatter of childhood memories, holiday celebrations, and the pleasures and traumas of the exuberant domestic expe- rience which both artists playfully dissect. What remains is the sucked-out husk of a devoured lobster. Call it the skeleton of the bourgeoise.

DIGESTIVO
Unafraid and wild at heart
we unashamedly believe in art As we fathom that we always are Closer to the beggar’s bar Than any skunk with Rolls Roy’s Car
True opulence is still
The sheer thrill
Of the ability to feast alone
On a lobster’s husk, a single bone
No adults, yet armed with fantasy We’ll call it skeleton of the bourgeoisie
