Interview Karin Aringer, Specialist contemporary art, photography and prints
“I am fascinated by Francesca Woodman’s intense and short life. Her self-portraits are melancholic and mysterious, just like I imagine the artist herself. The compositions are bold and her images entails a very personal expression. Woodman has inspired many contemporary photographers.” Read more >
Interview Louise Wrede, Specialist contemporary art
“Oscar Murillo’s large-scale paintings imply action, performance, and chaos, but are in fact methodically composed with full control over expressions. His works often relates to his own life. The city life in London, where he is based and Colombia where he was born in 1986. His works are composed of rough-hewn stitched canvases, which combine colours with fragments of text as well as dirt and dust from his studio.” Read more >
Interview Jonatan Jahn, Specialist Design
“This iconic object is known for symbolizing the breakthrough of Postmodernism within the Swedish design movement. Jonas Bohlin's milestone, the ”Concrete” chair, is a true Swedish design icon. This particular piece is reportedly the one that Bohlin showcased at his graduation exhibition at Konstfack in Stockholm 1981. It is rare opportunity to be able to acquire such an important Swedish design classic, so seize the moment!” Read more >
