If mourning gives name to longing, loss and sorrow, then the work of mourning is the effort involved in working through that grief. The exhibition at Bonniers Konsthall wants to deal with this—the work that grieving demands. However, the artworks on display do not approach the theme in a theoretical manner; instead, it gathers works that are created through or in the process of grief.

Lars Lerin, Maria Nordin and Bernd Koberling are well-known names, representing three different generations of artists. They move in different thematic circles, work with different forms of expression and radiate different kinds of energy. What they have in common, apart from the virtuoso watercolour technique, is a close friendship with the museum. Their art also incorporates the aesthetic values that are always so relevant. Bruno Liljefors worked around the late 19th and early 20th century, but has inspired many artists and has been a trendsetter in his approach to portraying birds. In the exhibition, he is presented alongside Lars Lerin.

The exhibition is comprised of three distinct parts: Flora, Fauna and Kroppens tunna skal

"With a career spanning nearly 60 years, Lena Cronqvist has established herself as one of Sweden’s most prominent artists. Best known for her paintings, Cronqvist’s multifaceted oeuvre also includes sculpture, drawing, printmaking and textile art. Her imagery embraces existential themes, such as love, childhood, motherhood, loneliness and death, and she often uses herself as a model. Cronqvist’s artistic practice is profoundly personal, yet equally inclusive and universal.

This thematic exhibition presents paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures and textile works from the 1960s to the present. The presentation includes several recent paintings that are being exhibited publicly for the first time."
