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!

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!

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.

BENGT OLSON 2018

2017

I want to mention that Bengt received the French, very highly regarded – A Knight Of The Order Of Arts And Letters – 2017.

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!

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

link to the development:





 Surface… a blessing for the balance!



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