Market Art Fair

On Sunday I went to see Market Art Fair at the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm. 39 galleries from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland were participating. The airy white rooms of the Royal Academy are very good for showcasing art and it was very evident that those galleries know how to display art.

I very much liked Cajsa von Zeipel's sculptures. Johannes Nyholm's short movie Las Palmas made me laugh - it's just so fresh and direct. Here you can see the trailer.

Päivi Takala's art grew on me in its simplicity
