On the last day of year two a client expressed ”Faa-an vad bra!” (Fuu-uck it’s good!) With this ringing in our ears we enter year three. What it was she was commenting on you’ll see in a couple of months. Thank you all for the loving support!

We are attending the migration symposium at Konstmuseet today. We are here to listen, learn, think and work. Excellent spot to free our minds and come to new understandings. But, mainly we are here to celebrate our dear friend and source of inspiration, graphic designer Lisa Olausson, who launches the extraordinary book she designed for the exhibition. Hurra för dig och boken Lisa, en av de finaste böcker vi sett! Ps, if you get the opportunity to listen to Charles Esche (Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven) - take it! Superstar speaker! Went straight into our hearts today. #malmökonstmuseum #vanabbemuseum @lisa_olausson_graphic_design

Interviews

November 27, 2019 — Studio portrait Nr 2

Peter Westrup, Photographer, Malmö, Sweden

 

Westrup (1974) is a Malmö based photographer who has documented the city’s change and modernization with his camera since the late 1990s. He has a broad spectrum of assignments, both commercial and self-initiated projects.

 

A hard working photographer when it comes to capturing human presence and personality in portraits. His field of work is both local and international, where both natural images and people’s everyday lives are documented. It turns out he also do assignments for advertising, editorial, products and some food as well.

 

He is now a part of our studio at Davidshall and we do look forward to exiting project together upcoming spring. We do love that Peter has one foot int the modern digital world of photography and the other in the more traditional part of the craft. Along with him came also his photo lab and we do love the smell of liquids from the darkroom and the Ilford photopaper boxes that lays around the office.

 

He currently has a small exhibition showing the eastern port of Malmö, documented through his lens. Can be seen in the windows at Davidshall until February 2020. Find his work on www.peterwestrup.se and his world on Instagram/peterwestrup



April 12, 2018 — Interview Nr 1

Jes Fernie, Independent curator, UK

 

H•G: How do you summarize your curatorial work, overall and for Råängen?

J.F: I work with artists, architects, thinkers, developers, priests, taxi drivers, choirs, farmers, developers and writers to make interesting things happen in public space. I’m interested in an expansive approach to contemporary art and culture that creates opportunities for a broad range of people to think about, get involved in, or just see art in their public realm.

For Råängen this involves working with Lund Cathedral and White Arkitekter on a long term commissioning programme that will establish a foundation for their development in Lund. I’m really excited about the potential for this programme to create a unique blueprint for thinking about urban expansion and the role the art and culture can play in this. Also, I LOVE working in Sweden!

 

H•G: Some words about amazing upcoming “And We Are Everywhere” from your heart?

J.F: When Nathan Coley and I first discussed the idea of presenting the concept for And We Are Everywhere to the representatives from Lund Cathedral, we genuinely had no idea whether they would go for it. It is a bold and potentially contentious work that raises all sorts of interesting, current issues about faith, the Church’s role in society, homelands. It is wonderful to be working with clients who are so committed to ideas and conversation.

 

H•G: What project are you most proud of, and why?

J.F: Recently, I’ve been enjoying working with fiction writers who have written short stories related to commissions or projects I’m curating. For example, Joanna Quinn wrote an incredible story about a scientist living on a boat in a flooded landscape with her daughter, in an apocalyptic near future, for a project called ‘Flood House’ that I worked on last year. It added an incredible dimension to the project – a magical, fictional space opened up, which made me realise the power of narrative in the projects I work on. I’m now working with Holly Corfield Carr on a story about enclosure, family and bad decisions. Loving it!

 

H•G: Future dream project?

J.F: Spending so much time in Sweden over the last year and half has led me to dream about working more there. In a parallel universe, I live in one of those gorgeous, smooth pull-out draws at the Skissernas Museum in Lund. I get to sneak around at night with a flash torch, whispering to the ghosts of artists long dead and creating scurrilous connections between the work of those still living.

 

H•G: Best exhibition/most interesting artist right now?

J.F: I’ve just discovered Lisa Brice’s work in the Art Now room at Tate Britain. She messes with Degas, Picasso, Manet, and directly responds to two paintings in the Tate collection by William Rothenstein and John Everett Millais. Limp, passive, lugubrious women become active, weird sexy and BLUE (a reference to the Blue Devil in Trinidadian carnival). I reckon Angela Carter would have LOVED this show.
