A common depiction of trans people is a before and after narrative; similar stories of “being born in the wrong body”, then undergoing gender confirming treatments to reach the result of a finished identity. This might be true for some, but for most people gender is a lifelong journey.

Transitioning Orchestra celebrates the ever-changing identity and is based on the artist’s ongoing transition, allowing time, curiosity, and playfulness into the transitioning process. The Orchestra consists of voice training, selfcare, laser treatment, surgeries, hormones, and conversations with peers. Together, the sounds become futuristic, fluid poetry.


Zafira Vrba Woodski is a Swedish-Czech artist, educator, curator and trans activist based in Stockholm. For the past 20 years, Zafira has been devoted to depicting queer lives and experiences through video, photography, sound, performance, and text.

Synkop: Can you repeat that?

”Can you repeat that?” är en utställning kuraterad av konstnärsplattformen Synkop i samarbete med Detroit Gallery. Utställningen syftar till att lyfta fram tygrullens egenskaper och konstnärer som arbetar med textiltryck. Alla konstnärer har fått samma format att arbeta utifrån.

Amandah Andersson, Amanda Elida Varhaugvik, Emilia Sundqvist, Elsa Chartin, Hannah Moores, Kristina Lundsjö, Lovisa Axén, Martina Skyttberg, Maria Johansson, Olle Halvars, Philippa Clarén, Timmy Sjöblom

De deltagande konstnärerna är alla verksamma textilkonstnärer med fokus på textiltryck, och är utvalda för sina respektive unika uttryck. Genom att visa upp konstnärernas olika tillvägagångssätt hoppas kuratorerna att betraktaren ska få en djupare förståelse för textilt konsthantverk.

'Can you repeat that?' is an exhibition curated by artist run platform SYNKOP in collaboration with Detroit Gallery. The exhibition aims to highlight the characteristics of the fabric roll, and artists working with textile print. All artists have all been given the same format to work around.

The Artists are selected for their range in expressions and represent textile print currently happening in Sweden. Through their range of approaches we hope the viewer can get a deeper understanding of the range of textile.

Vernissage and open hours:
All day on Friday
Friday 12-19
Saturday 12-17
Sunday 12-17

Covid: We continue being respectful and will have vernissage all day on Friday and we will adjust the number of people in the gallery during open hours to respect the artists who also have their atelier at Detroit Gallery.

#1 Collectiveness

`Queer Cohesion` is a series of three exhibitions that provides a platform for queer contemporary artists from the Nordic countries. The respective exhibitions carry the following thematics; Collectiveness, Norm-Criticality and Body. The project `Queer Cohesion` is initiated and curated by artists Hinni Huttunen and AnnaLeena Prykäri.

Exhibition series starts with the theme of Collectiveness as the project `Queer Cohesion` is born from the craving for collaboration and discussions, both within the artists and audience. Collectiveness is also vital for the queer communitys existence and survival. The exhibition series then moves forward to Norm-Criticality which is a tool for dismantling different social structures, constraining perspectives and highlighting power hierarchies. The exhibition series is finalised with the thematic of Body that is here seen as a psychical and mental state. The Body can be a catalysator for movement or inanimate objects in space.

`Queer Cohesion` stands for togetherness – solidarity – bonding and sticking together.

“What a Waste” by Heidi Edström (ingentinget),
22–29 January 2021

Artist’s Biography
Heidi Edström (ingentinget) is a Swedish artist based in Stockholm who has a persistent obsession with lumps, bumps, tubers, humps, knobs, knots, hunches, rotters and other suspicious or undesirable existences, all of which fit within the same word in Swedish – knöl. Working with performance art, sculpture, installations, photography and drawing, Heidi has been exploring the concept of knöl both as an undefined shape and in a wider context since 2010. She is currently conducting her BFA at Konstfack in Stockholm and is a co-founder of the experimental performance group Knölkollektivet.
