MENG / HALD : GRIDDY GRIT 4/6 – 3/7

The Danish artist duo MENG / HALD processes language and text, and have a starting point in an experience of writing that not only perceived intellectually, but instead go through the body in a physical reading. On Saturday 4th of June is the opening of their exhibition entitled ”Griddy Grit” at Wadström Tönnheim Gallery in Skanör.

Meng / Hald regards language as something which weaves itself through the reader in the reading; not as something to be understood only intellectually but rather through the body. The work is often shown as installations and always with a piece of writing, which is made for each new show.

The artist duo Meng / Hald consist of Cecilie Meng and Karin Hald. Meng is educated from Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm and Hald is educated from Malmö Art Academy, both in 2015.

The duo founded Forlaget Gestus in 2015, which has received funding from the The Danish Art Council. Forlaget Gestus present artists who juxtapose writing with art, and Meng / Hald functions as both curators and editors within this setting.

Opening on Saturday, June 4th, at 12-16 pm Wadström Tönnheim Gallery, Falsterbovägen 32 Skanör. The exhibition runs until 3/7. Opening hours Fri 13-17 and Sat-Sun at 12-16 .

Contrasts

Wadström Tönnheim Gallery presents the group exhibition Contrasts, during Skanör Falsterbo Art Days May 5 to 8, consisting of images from three experienced photographers. All with their own way to observe and capture life and its things, dead as alive, in the ephemeral moment of clarity. Vernissage is on 5 May at. 12-17, the exhibition will run until 29/5.

– In fact, 4th Street, which is part of a series of five photos that I call the City Canyon, my idea was to show The City of Los Angeles with empty streets, no cars, and people. And in this way obtain a different and a more graphical view of buildings and streets that you normally can’t experience in LA. I photographed the images an early morning, during Memorial Day weekend, when the downtown was empty of both cars and people. Soccer stadium is also part of a series of pictures where I show LA with illuminated buildings in the early evening light from a bird’s perspective, says Bo Hylén.

– What I quickly discovered when I started this project is the incredible creature of habit you are. You go on about the same streets most of the time. It has been a stimulating challenge to find the exciting details of the everyday routine. To push myself, I have had the rule that I can’t go home unless I photographed something during the day. This I have partly done to avoid the blame that I have no inspiration, says Stefan Peterson.

– The roses in the garden all have their peculiarities and what I invest in them, they provide a thousand fold back, and what I have chosen to photograph is very important to me, says David Carlson and adds: The old roses are part of humanity’s cultural history – legendary for its medicinal properties and inspiration for both poems and art. They offer a variety of qualities. Old-fashioned roses are holistic sustainable and relevant to most of us by being a symbol of beauty as well as love. We can dream us away in the amazing scents, multilayered flavors and their historical name – Fantin Latour, Aimable Amie, Jacques Cartier, Duchesse de Rohan, Stanwell Perpetual – in common is that they all have a history extending over many centuries. The old-fashioned roses continue to touch us with its vital and cross-pollinating synesthesia.

Opening is Thursday, May 5, at 12-17 at Wadström Tönnheim Gallery at Skanörs Hantverksby, Falsterbovägen 32. The exhibition runs until 29/5.
Opening hours during Skanör Falsterbo Art Days are 12-17 Thursday to Sunday, the rest is ordinary times as Fridays from 13-17 and Saturday & Sunday at 12-16.
