Large art and architecture exhibitions are organised every year during the Venice Biennale period hosted and supported by the European Cultural Centre. Like numerous other exhibitions all over Venice in that period, the GAA exhibitions are listed as part of the … Read More Making it to the Venice Biennale. Or, almost so…

“Salång PåGång” – “Goings On” – in my home studio on Cultural Night 2016

Or “Salång PåGång” in Swedish is what I always do at the Cultural Night in Lund, every year on the third Saturday of September. That’s the day and night of the year when all the inhabitants are on their feet to consume cultural events – and culture is defined extremely broadly, including for all ages, all nationalities and all cultural expressions such as eating… Since … Read More “Salång PåGång” – “Goings On” – in my home studio on Cultural Night 2016

Video “Abstract Real”

This video offers glimpses of the works I exhibited in my studio in 2016 – an exploration of abstract photography: What is real? What is abstract? And how do the two mix…blur? All the works started out with a photography and successively changed in the process to become “abstract”. I find that fascinating since photography has almost always been about taking pictures of what is, … Read More Video “Abstract Real”

People I met at Victoria and Albert in London

The Victoria and Albert Museum – V & A – is a fabulous museum in the heart of London. It calls itself “the world’s leading museum of art and design” on its homepage – which can of course be discussed. But that’s not what I want to do here. It was a late May Sunday afternoon, drizzle. Queues to the exhibitions being too long, … Read More People I met at Victoria and Albert in London

“Painting With Light” at Tate Britain

The whole long title of this exhibition is “Painting With Light – Art and Photography from the Pre-Raphaelites to the Modern Age”. Since I believe that photography is an art – like painting or sculpture or graphic prints – the title may feel somehow a little misguided. On the famous other hand, the exhibition covers a period of art history during which photography wasn’t broadly considered an … Read More “Painting With Light” at Tate Britain
