(yes, that's my feet in the photo. I like bigger format!)

Got a scholarship!

Tuesday night I received a cultural scholarship from the city of Göteborg  - and so did other artists, musicians, filmmakers, writers and actors. Then we had dinner at Börsen.

at the same time

I went to the opening of "Samtidigt" ("at the same time" or "simultaneously") a joint exhibition by Camilla Engman and Helena Roos. It was a perfect warm summery Saturday - and to enter the exhibition was like coming to another universe - dark and colorless - in the old boiler room at Konstepidemin (serving as not-at-all-white-cube-exhibition-room).

I loved the exhibition - go and see it! You have until the 2 June. Read more here and here
(sorry about the blurry photos, but I just had my iphone with me - and it was very dark)

getting settled

I'm already feeling super comfortable in my new studio! Normally it takes some time for me to feel at home in a new studio - but not this time ...
I've got storage
I've got space
I've got view

I've also got a nice kitchen and a spacious lunchroom - shared with other artists. And I've got a roof I can use for working outdoors/ having my lunch in the sun - shared with the seagulls.

bottled music

On our fourth and last workshops (last week) we visited the little princesse's house again. By now the children knew how the the story went in the tiny book - or at least the start. What came after was different every time. Or as a girl said " we went on a new adventure"
This time we were led to glittering bottles in a tree
and filled them with water and magic drops that gave colour and ...
that extra beautiful sound when we made music on them ...

This was my last workshop with the preschool. It's the first time I make a series of workshops like this - so site specific and focused on experience - and I've been enjoying every second!

And I'm happy to tell that I get to make a suggestion for a public art piece for this preschool's new premises (it's being constructed right now)! I've now got six weeks to come up with something.
