…to Art Lab Gnesta…

art, beauty, recent work

Bildens yta som kunskapsfält (1)

Today and tomorrow, you can still see the Karl Schultz-Köln memorial exhibition at Art Lab Gnesta. The exhibition will close with an event connecting Karl’s own research theme to contemporary art and research. Die Bildfläche als Erkenntnisfeld (roughly: the Image as a Field of Experience) was the title Karl chose for his collected essays, edited in 1998. To connect and comment on this, I will stage a Lab Talk with artist Jan Rydén, whose project Thinking Through Painting is ongoing since 2009.


The huge differences between these artists are obvious; so, the question is rather, if there exist any common parameters?
What does the image offer as  a field of experience?

For my own part, I’m really looking forward to this… Jan – you are most welcome to Art Lab Gnesta!
And everybody else – you are, too!

Long time since I published the last posts, but that doesn’t mean work is off. Blogging about my work is a kind of reflection, and since August 2013 I’m doing a lot more of that – reflecting – although in another context; currently, I’m in a two-year programme at the Center for Studies in Practical Knowledge at Södertörn University (Stockholm), which means a lot of reading, writing and discussing. Another part of my time is spent at Art Lab Gnesta.

But then, there’s the studio. It’s always there… Spring light is outside. Inside, it’s warm. Inside, things are waiting.
