Exhibition History
Jonas Dahlberg is famous for monumental public works, such as the suggestion for a memorial over the victims of the Utöya massacre in Norway and the rotating sculpture The Mirror at Arenatorget in Stockholm.

With film as a medium, Dahlberg often works with staged environments in the form of meticulously crafted models. However, in Music Box, the room is the interior of a musical box that once was a gift to Dahlberg’s mother from her father. In the film, the musical box resembles a kind of anonymous industrial machinery, but at the same time it holds a personal history.
