THE SCULPTURE – COURAGE – MADE BY ARTIST BENGT OLS ON
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 ne ver left… it only left the quarry when Bengt moved the sculpture to Mölndal.
BENGT OLSON 2018
I want to mention that Bengt received the French, very highly regarded – A Knight Of The Order Of Arts And Letters – 2017.
The French Embassy
“CHEVALIER DE L’ORDRE DES ARTS ET LETTRES”
A KNIGHT OF THE ORDER OF ARTS AND LETTERS
David Cvach, Ambassadeur de France awarding the medal.
Bengt is receiving the very highly regarded – a French honorary title as a recognition of “significant contributions to the enrichment of the French cultural inheritance”
My portrait of Bengt
… it has been a long session!
… with many thoughts and sketches – for about three years. – how to portrait Bengt in the most truful way -relevant to my experience!
titel: Deep Dives
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-costume to 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
link to the development:
Surface… a blessing for the balance!
And this magic fabrics… that speaks and tell… impossible to resist!

the process – the development – the birth of an exhibition
I´v used so much couler in this one “painting-surge”, I´v scraped of as much… despite that, I´m not in port yet!
some of the many shapes!
IT BEGAN WITH PLAY… THE PLAY OF FEAR!

… some of the transformations, under my process with “Lolita Express”!
… this work… it has been over overwhelming!
the first steps!
… STILL THE SAME PAINTING!
WHILE PROCESSING THIS “BEING”
… so many expressions… so many faces…
… a teaser !
To prepare your mind and heart is truly very crucial… because it is oncoming!
… an poetic interpretation of the in coming era of artificial intelligence.
Oncoming, the film will be a part of a later context… it is supposed to run on a wall in an exhibition setting. There will be more…
ONCOMING is a project and it includes other people… they are, and will be invited to participate by me.
