And then… and then, one late summer day I found myself once more a student at the Royal Institute of Art. On September 1st, the new semester began – immersed in sunshine and jazz music – with a speech by new director Marta Kuzma. Then official photographing on the lawn. And for me, a space in the graphic department. I bring the object from Mr Benetton, and install myself.

It’s connected to my studies at the Södertörn University; I could say I’m attempting at bringing art to the academic world, as well as academia to the art world. Or: that I’m exploring what can be lined up in written sentences, and what can be reflected on a surface only.

Imago Mundi?

And then I got invited to a project named Imago Mundi, initiated by mr. Luciano Benetton. Mediated by a Swedish curator, he sent me a framed canvas, offering a place in his collection if I return it transformed into an artwork. Hmm… I keep thinking about this. I bring the object with me, presenting it to colleagues and friends; what do you think?  A gift, a generous offer, a pawn, a trap?
