MASK

GOT MY MASK TODAY

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!

… will only use it in crowded spaces!

I Just have to document this very strange moment!

YOUÂŽVJUST HAVE TO to find youÂŽr own way in this contagious atmosphere, to make youÂŽr 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 itÂŽs 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!

We just have to step out of the anesthesia!!

… right!?

… would love to take a trip out there!

LAST NIHGT I PAINTED…


… last night I painted, Lolita has got her face back… what a process!! …and as many close said to me: – put away the board!

I didn’t – put away the board – so now it remains to be seen if this face holds, if I have found the right one! I kind of believe it, although it might not be possible to trust, hmmm …



COURAGE



THE SCULPTURE – COURAGE – MADE BY ARTIST BENGT OLSON

A Zeppa close-up of “COURAGE”


THIS IS THE SHORT VERSION OF THE FILM “COURAGE”

OBS: there is one 12 minutes long version of COURAGE upcoming


“Courage” is dedicated to Mr Lennart Larsson, who is a great art lover, patron and a very good friend to both Bengt and me. 


“Courage” a story-telling sculpture!

“Courage” speaks to me, every time I pas it… sometimes I believe that some kind of spirit has moved in… or maybe it never left… it only left the quarry when Bengt moved the sculpture to Mölndal.

My portrait of Bengt

ABOUT CREATING CLOTHES

collage – some of – zeppa clothes & creations

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.

PERFORMANCE “PANG”: ONE OF THE MANY SKETCHES – I DID AN INVESTIGATIVE PROCESS ABOOUT THE BODY – CLOUTING – LIGHT&SHADOW INTERACTING WITH THE SPACE IN THE ROOM… FASCINATING! I WISH YOU WERE ALWAYS THIS ADAPTED, IN FACT A BIT LIKE AN OCTOPUS, WHICH IS IMPOSSIBLE… BUT MAYBE WITH CLOTHES YOU CAN BE SO ADAPTED TO YOUR INNER ROOM . THAT IS THE PASSION IN MY CLOTHING CREATION PROCESS.. IT IS IN A VERY EASY HAPPY PLAYFUL CREATIVE WAY! THE OPPOSITE WAY TO MY PAINTING PROCESS WERE I ALWAYS MOVE AROUND IN THE DEEPEST DEEP.

I MADE THIS STRANGE HEADDRESS IN PAPIÉ MACHÉ It was used later in another context

sketches for dance-costume

sketch for dance-costumeto dancer Carmen Olsson

I loved to do these sketches – I made a lot – never shown them before – my interest for fabrics and clothing began with this mission, 2013.

… how the stage costume became!

it became a doorway – a renewed way to think body&room – new insights

 Surface
 a blessing for the balance!



And this magic fabrics
 that speaks and tell
 impossible to resist!

[KONSTHALLEN]


I WENT TO SE THIS EXHIBITION

… and I had a very speciell experience!

This movie specifically describes my experience of Moa IsraelssonÂŽs cocoons !


MOA ISRAELSSON

“Moa Israelssons konstnĂ€rskap rör sig ofta i grĂ€nslandet mellan fiktion och verklighet, hennes skulpturer liknar föremĂ„l vi kĂ€nner till, men Ă€r tillverkade av andra material och dimensioner Ă€n vi Ă€r vana vid.

Israelssons installation Go, Gone bestĂ„r av tio skulpturer i olika storlekar som hĂ€nger frĂ„n taket. Skulpturerna Ă€r formade som stora sovsĂ€ckar, mjuka och till synes slitna av yttre Ă„verkan. Stoppningen Ă€r synlig och materialet Ă€r flĂ€ckat, som om det legat ute under lĂ„ng tid och bearbetats av tidens gĂ„ng. De omsorgsfullt handsydda skulpturerna vittnar om en stilla vila. Tryggheten sömnen inger, men ocksĂ„ sĂ„rbarheten. Tyget blir dĂ„ ett försvar, ett lager mellan kroppen och vĂ€rlden som skyddar och vĂ€rmer mot det som sker utanför. Verkets titel Go, Gone antyder att nĂ„got gĂ„tt förlorat och fĂ„r sovsĂ€ckarna att likna tomma skal. Det enda som Ă„terstĂ„r Ă€r minnet av det som en gĂ„ng funnits. Samtidigt inger den uppmanande titeln ocksĂ„ ett hopp om att lĂ€mna förlusten bakom sig och gĂ„ vidare, att bli fri, och precis som puppan i en kokong förvandlas och pĂ„nyttfödas.

Materialvalet, silke och lÀder, förstÀrker kÀnslan av skulpturerna som kokonger, skapade av naturen snarare Àn syntetiskt framstÀllda av mÀnniskan. Det Àr frÄn just silkeskokongen som silkestrÄden utvinns. De tvÄ materialen silke och lÀder Àr bÄda organiska naturmaterial, men samtidigt varandras ytterligheter. DÀr det ena Àr ömtÄligt och skirt, Àr det andra tÄligt, slitstarkt och grovt. Kontrasten mellan materialen, det skira och mjuka, det grova och smutsiga, bidrar till en kÀnsla av sÀllsamhet och förfrÀmligande: föremÄlen kÀnns bekanta men samtidigt underliga.

Go, Gone, 2019-2020, 10 skulpturer, olika dimensioner, silke och lĂ€der.”
