STENARNA OCH DJUREN – JONAS FALCK’S DISCOVERIES, NORDINGRÅ

Truth is an elusive concept. Details are contradictory. Everything is changeable. All definitive answers extend beyond the horizon and remain inaccessible. Sometimes imagination takes over. Keeping the dream alive is a way of surviving. This summer I have traveled to the High Cost of Sweden and installed my work at Mannaminne. My discoveries, created in the company of Jonas Falck, meets the craftmanship and imagination of the artist Anders Åberg. The exhibition “Stenarna och djuren – Jonas Falcks återskapade iakttagelser” runs between June 5th and August 31, 2021.

LEVANDE STEN

In a thematic issue on nostalgia, I have written about my work with Jonas Falck – for the magazine Hjärnstorm #140-141. “I verkligheten är, som vi alla vet, allting föränderligt. Avvikelserna är många. Alla definitiva svar, alla tydligheter, sträcker sig bortom horisonten och förblir onåbara. Ibland tar fantasin överhand.”

MY DISCOVERIES ALONGSIDE JONAS FALCK IN ÄNGELHOLM

Getting ready for konsthallen in Ängelholm (Galleri Moment), accompanied by Jonas Falck and a mutated aglais urticae – as it previously had the longest lifespan of Eurasian butterflies, it now lacks functioning mouthparts. After two weeks, it has starved to death.

PUBLIC COMMISSION AT THE ROYAL INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

A little over 200 years have passed since my traveling companion Jonas Falck made some remarkable findings around Kultsjön and Fårö. The day have now come when the Swedish state recognizes Jonas Falck’s discoveries: we have installed some of our findings at KTH, the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. Together with the rectification of a scientist overlooked, we offer the courage to shed light on what could have been. Some findings are just too significant, and some eccentrics will always be ignored because they don’t fit our worldview. But today we know (the state included) that history and nature is always changing. Commissioned by Statens Konstråd – Public Art Agency Sweden.

TWO ART-ESSAYS PUBLISHED IN THE MAGAZINE TIDNINGEN KULTUREN

Contributed with two essays in two different issues of the Swedish magazine Tidningen Kulturen. One essay reflects over my relationship to transgressions, loneliness, death and icons. The other essay descries the desire to be totally absorbed in details. It’s an essay about my own artistic work where my source material is my grandfather’s art historical archive. It tells about the things we just need to do, even if the reason to why is almost impossible to describe.
