To what became – New exhibition by Celie Eklund

On Saturday, 31 of October opens a new exhibition with the Malmö-educated artist Celie Eklund, who now operates from Stockholm. The exhibition ”To what became” goes on until Sunday 22 of November.

In Celie Eklund’s new exhibition ”To what became”, we meet symbolically charged paintings where there is both fragility and strength. Stockholm suburb, the grove of trees and the beach are in Eklund’s paintings the scene of universal questions about the vulnerability, protection and defense, togetherness and belonging. It is a narrative work in which Eklund has a dialogue with what has been, what is and what should be taught.

Celie Eklund was born in 1982 and lives and works in Stockholm. She studied at the Royal Art Academy in Stockholm, and has a master’s degree in fine arts from the Art Academy in Malmö from 2011. Celie has also had time for one year at The International Academy of Art Palestine, Ramallah, West Bank of Palestine. Celie Eklund is also current working as curator and artist with an exhibition at Arbetets Museum in Norrköping this autumn.

Opening on Saturday, October 31, at 12-16. The exhibition will run until 22 of November. Open Friday 13-17 and Saturday – Sunday 12-16.

Johan Röing – The Escape – Opening 5th of September

Johan Röing – The Escape

The sculptures are cut in the wood with coarse hands, chainsaws and angle grinders. With consistent finesse, they find a synthesis between apparently irreconcilable opposites such as figure and abstraction, heaviness and lightness, humor and darkness. With a steady physicality as a base prompted the viewer to take a position.

The paintings, always oil on canvas, shows the other possibilities and directions of his art work. Frequent use cloths covered with layer upon layer until the final image emerges. It becomes a game with distance and depth of field, perhaps on the basis of a picture memory. Photographic color filters are used, linseed oil dries slowly and underlines the paintings presence.

Johan Röing has been active as an artist for thirty years and received his artistic training at the Staatliche Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf, 1979-1986, and by his professor and mentor Anthony Cragg. Johan has made several celebration exhibitions in both public environments and Art Galleries (Malmö Konsthall, Trelleborgs Museum, Kulturhuset in Stockholm and others) as in galleries such as Magnus Åklundh and Ping Pong in Malmö and also in Germany where Johan lived and worked for several years.

210 bottles – New Exhibition by Lennart Alves

Saturday the 9 of May is the opening of Lennart Alves’s new exhibition ”210 Bottles”. The name describes the number of imaged bottles in the exhibition and also refers to Andy Warhol 210 Coca-Cola bottles. In addition to having bottles that common motives Lennart Alves also chosen to make one of the images in the same size as Warhol, which measures 145 x 209 cm.

The exhibition is an evolution of what I showed at Ystad Art Museum and consists only of cyanotypier. Like that exhibition, these new motives are also based on trash, but this time only by the bottles I collected along the Barents Sea and the Baltic Sea beaches. The photographs are photograms, which means that there is no negative and that each image is only available in one copy. What interests me in these images is their duplicity. The photographs are both poetic abstractions and concrete images. They live in the borderland. In addition to the obvious paraphrases of Warhol, as the exhibition like the one in Ystad, this is also a tribute to the photo pioneer Anna Atkins, says Lennart Alves.

WHEN: Opening Saturday, 9 May at. 12:00 to 16:00.

WHERE: Hantverksbyn, Falsterbovägen 32 in Skanör.

HOW:  The exhibition ”210 bottles” will run until Sunday May 31. Opening hours Friday 13-17 and Sat – Sun 12-16, or by appointment.
