OK, if I can play – as pretending – that I am a smart space-chicken!
… with my own spaceship, then i can cope with it!
There is already some kind of fashion-vibes on these face-things!
I Just have to document this very strange moment!
YOU´VJUST HAVE TO to find you´r own way in this contagious atmosphere, to make you´r mind accept it… for the moment there is no other choice. I really do think that this is just a begining of a type of living, for the moment we find it very difficult but somewhere in the future this in some way will be the normal. I am thinking specially at the divine antibiotics that in the rather soon future will lose it´s effect… maybe this will be, in a more development way, the alternative to that scenario! I believe that in the future, like in 10 years, people will look back at these times an feel horrified that we closed down nearly everything… I think it is absolutely urgent to start up all activities.. as in NOW… and it is absolutely urgent to design very comfortable protection alternativs… that people can cope with… find a way to be normal in!
COLLAGE-presentation of parts of Zeppa-Creations. This work makes an important existentiell balance for me towards my painting – where I always move around in the “deep” – creating clothes gives me a wonderful surface… where there is easy to be!
it is a way to speak
… or not to speak… It is a global language. It is so fascinating – all different ways – from the simplest to the most complex! It is wonderful, fun and ingenious. I think that we are rather unconscious concerning the dress-perspective, in general… despite all the fashion and consuming.
This movie specifically describes my experience of Moa Israelsson´s cocoons !
“Moa Israelssons konstnärskap rör sig ofta i gränslandet mellan fiktion och verklighet, hennes skulpturer liknar föremål vi känner till, men är tillverkade av andra material och dimensioner än vi är vana vid.
Israelssons installation Go, Gone består av tio skulpturer i olika storlekar som hänger från taket. Skulpturerna är formade som stora sovsäckar, mjuka och till synes slitna av yttre åverkan. Stoppningen är synlig och materialet är fläckat, som om det legat ute under lång tid och bearbetats av tidens gång. De omsorgsfullt handsydda skulpturerna vittnar om en stilla vila. Tryggheten sömnen inger, men också sårbarheten. Tyget blir då ett försvar, ett lager mellan kroppen och världen som skyddar och värmer mot det som sker utanför. Verkets titel Go, Gone antyder att något gått förlorat och får sovsäckarna att likna tomma skal. Det enda som återstår är minnet av det som en gång funnits. Samtidigt inger den uppmanande titeln också ett hopp om att lämna förlusten bakom sig och gå vidare, att bli fri, och precis som puppan i en kokong förvandlas och pånyttfödas.
Materialvalet, silke och läder, förstärker känslan av skulpturerna som kokonger, skapade av naturen snarare än syntetiskt framställda av människan. Det är från just silkeskokongen som silkestråden utvinns. De två materialen silke och läder är båda organiska naturmaterial, men samtidigt varandras ytterligheter. Där det ena är ömtåligt och skirt, är det andra tåligt, slitstarkt och grovt. Kontrasten mellan materialen, det skira och mjuka, det grova och smutsiga, bidrar till en känsla av sällsamhet och förfrämligande: föremålen känns bekanta men samtidigt underliga.
Go, Gone, 2019-2020, 10 skulpturer, olika dimensioner, silke och läder.”
This blog post is about my desire to think positively, to look ahead… It´s simply an artist looking at her surroundings and thinking… damn corona! How wonderful it will be when it is over! Many people have been invested at different levels of energi in this project below.
I do care… and I do love to express it!
… through some pictures, some text and
below – 4 – short films!
Quality HotelThe Weaver
There is something going on in Mölndal…
Two gentlemen – two companies
Petter Stordalen – Nordic Choice & Lennart Larsson – Husvärden AB
MöLndal’s new landmark
The construction is advancing, the building growing taller by the day… the high-profile Quality Hotel The Weaver. It sits within the grounds of Krokslätts Fabriker and will be managed by Nordic Choice.
The First Sod!
As with all Nordic Choice hotels, it aspires to be a welcoming “living room” for staying guests and visitors alike.In due time, when circumstances permit, food will be served, from simple snacks to gourmet dinners, as is the custom at Nordic Choice hotels.
The formidable garage that manages to enhance the area instead of marring it!
Something absolutely lovely about this spot!
To the great advantage of the hotel is, on the one hand the main road outside, taking you straight to the city centre, either by car or by tram; on the other, a beautiful wooded area within a short walking distance with prepared tracks for running or rambling.
Have a look here!
… incredibly close to The Weaver!
“on the other side”
ON THE OTHER SIDE
And another thing!
Close by you will find two attractive neighbours, for anyone in need of either: For your physical health the well equipped gym Nordic Wellness, and for anyone wishing to enhance their looks, the Art Clinic
… an artist´s perspective of a friend and colleague´s sculpture, the artist Bengt Olson. See if you can follow, listen and take in the essence of this sculpture for about 16 minutes. Just sit back and relax! Zeppa
“Courage” is dedicated to Mr Lennart Larsson, who is a great art lover, patron and a very good friend to both Bengt and me.
two trousers in different fabrics became this top… because it became to strange, I looked like a pink S:t Claus,
the Christmas guy! 🙂
... my first encounter with the ritual of society ... I am looking at my godmother who has handed me over to this strange omission - foreign power - not scary, just very strange.... what transformations we go through in life, both bodily and in the personality!... even though the higher self is intact and untouched! The coreof the self is in the photo... exactly the same core as now in grown up life. Wonder what happens with that core when it leaves all the layers of personality?!
This is about Artificial Intelligence … it’s about what’s coming, which is actually already here, even though we don’t really see it yet … but we soon will.
For My part, a robot artist has already walked in … one who even thinks that I should work as her assistant … DUH!!
… it’s both humorous but also a bit brutal,
it’s like no ordinary pick-nick… so to speak!
PS: this post is a sketch, the beginning of a project!
… nodding towards me!
The projected digital animation, titled 'Cohesive Flesh', was created by Malgorzata Zboinska as a part of her artistic project 'Architectural Convertibles' funded by the Swedish Research Council Vetenskapsrådet.
… nodding towards me… like she wants me to assist her!
You know, that song above, here's a little story:So I was in Paris, shared an apartment with a Swede, model on Vouge, one day one of her partners (she had many) wanted to take us out to dinner. I was sitting in the back seat of his skinny sports car, he was a producer. He inserted a cassette… then he said: - By the way, you have to listen… a black girl came in today and left this demon… listen… of course it sounds good! It was her above, Gloria Gaynor !!
today I will celebrate… celebrate that life is increable…
it really is!
the limits are self made in our brains!
me… struggling with life, struggling with existens, and yea… everything! The only thing that kept me alive was my goal, was my painting!
The story is long… so I shorten it very much for this moment of celebration by only telling this:
in one months time
I went from totally lost “in the pancake”, with 100 kr in my pocket – to flying Jumbo yet, first class to Perth, Australia – attending an Miss Universe event – as a guest! … and there was no strange attachment to this, there was only me surching for an mecenat. Another time I will tell the long version!
I went home after a couple of mounts with a lot of new inner windows to the world.
I had this man, MR Julio Iglesias to the table… not ones but several times. Ones he started like in a poetic way singing a song with my name… then he asked me how old I was… he thought that I was the youngest – I was not – so the song was not completed! Anyway, he was very nice… and after a while he did find someone to love for the time, the finish ex Miss Universe… she was not so nice towards me in the cab! There was a lot of limousine traveling between different events in 10 days… we were al hanging together. Mr Iglesias, and the friend I was there with were jury members. My god… there is so many unbelievable storys to tell… it really is increable
I´v heard that he has got KV 19… that he is dead… I do not know… but I wish him the best where ever he is… and his children… if he is dead, it must be a huge loss for them.
The Cinderella shoes I got from the person who took care of all the girls, these where the shoes they had to the bathing suits… how political incorrect can you bee… me telling this story!! But I learned a lot, and that was very correct I can tell!
the only medal i ever got!
until now … as I said, life is unlimited
I had my first exhibition in a flat, private… this painting, below was the first I sold, surprisingly to a famous art collector… I didn’n know who he was – sounds like Megan M. 😉 – but that turned the table so to speak.
This painting was a refection of my experience above… the luxury trip to Pert in Australia 1979.
