This Autumn started with a solo show at Konstforum in Norrköping opening 28th of september until 13th of October. It is a great venue and I was fortunate to have Philippe Lassey by my side providing sound art and music. The theme of the show is scenes from the the war ridden Unesco ruins of Palmyra and Aleppo. I am very grateful to have received so much media for the show and that I´ve been so welcomed and supported by the gallery.
All summer I showcased at Carlslund Herrgård in Örebro and Tomarps Kungsgård (not far from Helsingborg) to see some of my new work. In autumn I will be showcasing at Konstforum in Norrköping and late in October in Istanbul. In May I was showing work at the group show “Årsringar” at Konstnärshuset. I am certainly having a terrific year.
Showing at Liljevalchs early this year was a great experience. And I am back in the studio again working on some work for the shows this upcoming spring and summer. The work is about the ruins again ruined by Isl (Daesh, Isis) during the wars in Syria.
