About the piece
The sculptures in the Consolador series were made during the months Sara lived in Spain. An exotic place for her where everything was patterned, detailed and colorful. A place where many people are strict Catholics and openly show their sexuality. A blend of extravagant fashion and judging looks saying you’re showing too much skin. High and low, all or nothing.
Consolador means to comfort, but is also the Spanish word for dildo.

Sara Kallioinen Lundgren (b. 1993) is an artist based in Gothenburg. She is currently studying the BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) within ceramics at HDK in Gothenburg, but is working with her art from numerous materials and techniques. Her focus is most often at the surface of her artworks and the objects she is creating, meaning she’s working with the different structures of the materialities or applying a flat image or a pattern. The materials can range from ceramics to plaster and textile, The combination of two dimensional surfaces and three dimensional shapes is in constant focus. The experiments are balances between different materials, structures and surfaces.
