Swedish artist Sofia Hultén presents an exhibition in which objects contain the possibility of multiple stories. Along similar lines to speculative fiction and to the idea of juxtaposition, Sofia Hultén's videos and sculptures offer timelines with narrative options based on a questioning gaze that challenges everything around us.

Sofia Hultén's work questions the temporality of objects. Ordinary household items or found objects acquire alternative options through the artistic process. A sequence based on discarded shoes, for instance, becomes an invisible journey and an urban navigation system. Objects are filled with other ideas, and functionality becomes just one of many attributes.
