Piminski- A Show of Works by Joakim Dahlqvist

A Show of Works by Joakim Dahlqvist

Opening: Saturday, 1 February, 6:00 p.m.
Continues: February 1-23

Joakim Dahlqvist is an architect, designer, illustrator and digital artist. This exhibition presents a collection of Dahlqvist’s illustrations that teeter on the edge between reality and fantasy. Defying the sublime tendencies of architectural rendering, he represents imagined objects with an analytical coolness. Cast with an artificial fluorescent glow, these artifacts and environments tease with the pleasure of their verisimilitude. However, with a droll touch worthy of Jacques Tati, they offer a surreal joy that transcends the digital model.

Dahlqvist has studied architecture Chalmers School of Architecture and received a Masters degree with honors from the Design Research Laboratory at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London. He began his creative career in 2000 with OMA/AMO in Rotterdam, working mainly on the research, technology and content projects for Prada. Since 2003 he has been a freelance creative consultant, continuing work on Prada projects with OMA as well as pursuing a diverse series of projects for April, National Geographic, Kram/Weisshaar, Hosoya Schaefer, Christian Kracht, Eva Munz and Acne. In 2005 he began a collaboration with Jens Hommert and Hieu Dam on a series of entreprenurial projects that have resulted in a restaurant and a bar in Los Angeles. He has written for Volume Magazine and Der Freund. He has taught and assisted workshops at UCLA, Sci Arc, Otis, Berlage Institute and Architectural Association.

The work branches from architecture to art, creative direction, design research, video installations, construction, operations, research, photography, cooking, editing, illustration, animation, compositing, 3D modeling, book making and web strategies.

He is currently based in Los Angeles.
