Today 16th of May you can visit Anna Lerinder at the Open Studio Day at Gustavsbergs’s old porcelain factory in Stockholm. And if you´re in Japan in June, don´t miss out Anna Lerinder, Jonas Lindholm, Carina Seth Andersson at Curators Cube in Tokyo.

A week of Work and Art

Swedish sculptor Eva Lange has been awarded the Sergel award 2015 by The Royal Academy of Fine Arts. I recently met with the artist in her studio in Stockholm. It resulted in an editorial portrait where Eva Lange speak about her craft and life, and also let us get a glimpse of her beautiful studio. If you´ve got an Eva Lange sculpture nearby; go and spend some time with it!

I also enjoyed the exhibition I have been to hell and back, work by Louise Bourgeois, at Moderna Museet 14.2 – 17.5 2015. Ingeniously curated by Iris Müller-Westermann. I lingered by the textile sculptures, they´re strong and vulnerable at the same time. Like the pale blue Couple clinging to each other while hanging from a thin thread.

And don’t miss out En Face by Denise Grünstein at Nationalmuseum c/o Konstakademin, 19.2–3.5 2015. The exhibition is based on an art project the photographer ran in the empty museum building during its renovation.

Mr Cooper, how do you take it?

The best café in Sweden, according to White Guide 2014, is Johan & Nyström Concept Store at Södermalm area in Stockholm.
After years of an excessive caffelattemacchiatocappuccino trend it is a relief to find a café where it’s all right to go hardcore: ”Black as midnight on a moonless night”…

Summer dwellings

Swedes loves their summer dwellings! It must be small and close to nature but the style differ. Some prefer the traditional red wooden house with its glass porch and ”English garden”. Others travel to the Italian alps to live a simple life on a hill high above an ancient village. And for several of us the dream house is modernistic, like the houses we wrote about last summer in Scandimood issue no 2/2013 (see link at ”Previous issues” to the right of this page).
Enjoy a lovely traditional, a serene rustic and a beautiful modernistic.. All captured by photographer Patric Johansson in his book Arkitektens Fritidshus (”The Architects summerhouse”).
