Morning reading ft. Flora Wiström

Ah, how great September mornings have started. We though we'd keep them that way. Next week debutant author Flora Wiström will be joining us to read from her just release novel "Stanna". We're super exited to be joined by this young talent so early in her artistry. This will be a quite intimate session so make sure to mark your calendars and be quick on the sign-up if you want to join.

About the author

Flora Wiström debuterar i höst med samtidsromanen Stanna. En bok om den livsavgörande kärleken, den sorten som ställer krav. Om systerskapet, och om att vilja finnas för den man älskar - men inte veta hur. När Flora inte skriver fiktion så jobbar hon som bloggare. Du hittar henne på flora.metromode.se

About "Stanna"

Esters Stockholmstillvaro kantas av oändliga jobbpass på antikvariatet och dimmiga lördagsnätter med bästa kompisen. Livet känns som en symaskinsnål som hoppar fram och tillbaka när tråden ska fästas; Ester kommer inte vidare. Men en dag träffar hon Eli med den mörka rösten och händerna som är fläckade av målarfärg. Det blir början på det vackraste men svåraste året i Esters liv. I bloggaren Flora Wiströms sinnliga romandebut är kärleken allomfattande, på gott och ont.

Novellix & the art of translating

Novellix & the art of translating

  • 54 Apelbergsgatan Stockholm, Stockholms län, 111 37 Sweden (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

May is upon us and the days are getting longer and sunnier. What a joy. In the same spirit we are spending our next session together with Novellix and litterature translator Erik MacQueen exploring his translation of D.H Lawrence's novel "Sun". The art of translating a novel from one language into another is a balance act of nuances and word choices - and is an art in itself.  

Novellix's latest publications are five short stories by our most important Brittish authors – Katherine Mansfield, Charles Dickens, Virginia Woolf, Charlotte Brontë and D.H Lawrence, all translated by the best translators Sweden has to offer. D.H. Lawrence wrote the novel "Lady Chatterley's Lover" in 1928 and created a great scandal for it's erotic content and depictions of female sexuality. In the short story "Sun" that Erik Macqueen now translated for Novellix, D.H Lawrence continues to portray female sexuality and its complexity. Ticket release on May 12th at 11 am.

*This session will be in Swedish

About Novellix

Novellix is a publishing house since 2011 and is focused exclusively on short stories. With the tagline – Stories to go – Novellix aims to make good literature available and accessible for urban people "on the go". Each short story are published individually in the size of a postcard and designed by contemporary Swedish graphic designers and illustrators. Publishing both newly written short stories by contemporary authors such as Jonas Hassen Khemiri and Karolina Ramqvist, but also translated short stories by classic authors such as Marcel Proust and Sylvia Plath. Novellix offers a wide range of authors spanned in time allowing the readers to immerge in new territories of literature and recalling again their most beloved classics. 

About Erik MacQueen

Erik MacQueen has a master's degree from the Translation program at Uppsala University and has translated some of our greatest contemporary authors such as Jonathan Tropper, Teju Cole and Marisha Pessl. His most recent work is translating the biography of Bruce Springsteen for Natur & Kultur which seems to be a perfect task for him since he, alongside with his occupation as a translator is also a musician and songwriter.

 

This event if now full! 

Signing up at this point and forward will put you on the reseve list and we'll reach out to you in case of any cancellations.

Dance: "The Stanford Experience" at Balettakademien

Dance: "The Stanford Experience" at Balettakademien

It's already April and we've been invited back to Balettakademien to enjoy a dance performance choreographed by Milo Johansson. 8 am sharp as usual and don't be late - or you'll miss breakfast from wonderful Garant!
 

DSC_0031.jpg

The performance: "The Stanford Experience"

"The Stanford Experience" is based on the classical psychological experiment by prof. Philip Zimbardo at Stanford University 1971, where volunteer students were given the role of prisoner or guard and placed in a constructed prison. The piece discovers and reflects upon how humans and groups act when placed in a set structure, how morals, self worth and empathy gets set aside to oblige the given set of rules. Together with the dancers the audience experience how the individual gets lost in the adaptation of a role already defined by pre-set conditions, and how man unknowingly becomes the monster.
 

About the choreographer

Milo Johansson is a second year student at the 3 year professional dance education at Balettakademien. 
 

About Balettakademien

Balettakademien is one of the Nordic region's most prominent dance schools. Many of Sweden's successful dancers, musical artists and choreographers have been educated here. Who knows, maybe we'll be enjoying the work of tomorrows stars?

Olle Olsson Hagalund @Sven-Harrys Konstmuseum

The first session of 2016 and we're back in the home of an old friend - Sven-Harry to be exact. We have been invited to explore some of the previously un-shown work, in their exhibition with Stockholm artist Olle Olsson-Hagalund. As per usual - be on time in order to grab breakfast. Looking forward to see you there! Sign up below. (PS. this session will be held in Swedish)

About the Exhibition - A colorful romantic

Sven-Harry’s Art Museum invites the public to enjoy works of art from private collections that have rarely been shown. Several are, of course, scenes from Hagalund in Solna, Olle Olsson’s beloved neighbourhood that was practically razed in the 1960s, when the politicians wanted to tear down the old to make way for new, “functional” high-rise apartment blocks. But Hagalund was not the only thing to capture his eye; he loved wandering around Stockholm and its surroundings and found motifs at both Odenplan and out on Djurgården, to name but a few places. His family had a summerhouse on Gullholmen off the west coast, where he filled his salt-stained canvases with wizened fishermen and bathing beauties in the coves. Olle Olsson loved being on the west coast among the people there, whom he found to be similar to his neighbours in Hagalund. He came to the same conclusion when travelling the world: people and places were like Hagalund, whether he was in Paris with his wife Maja in the 1930s, or on his annual spring visits to Helsingør to see the budding beech forests. Read more here.

About Olle Olsson Hagalund

Olle Olsson-Hagalund was born 1904 in Hagalund, Solna in the northern part of Stockholm. His colourful style had Hagalund, Stockholm and it's buildings and people in focus - he loved meeting places where the joys of everyday life were shared by young and old. Olle Olsson Hagalund could be called an expressive naivïst, but the word “unique” would also suffice. Few artists in Sweden have been so loved by so many!

ABOUT SVEN-HARRY'S ART MUSEUM

“What do you do with an art collection when it is complete? If you donate it to a museum it ends up in their basement. No, I want everyone to be able to enjoy my art the way I do.” Sven-Harry Karlsson. 

This was the idea that finally led to the founding of the museum, which opened on 27 March, 2011. Sven-Harry’s art museum is a spectacular building with a gleaming brass facade, in the middle of Stockholm, just by Vasaparken.

Sven-Harry’s art museum, a wonderfully golden building designed by Gert Wingårdh and Anna Höglund, unites a variety of activities: in addition to the art gallery and Sven-Harry’s “home”, it also houses a restaurant, apartments and commercial premises. We have a broad and varied spectrum of contemporary and classical art and endeavour constantly to expand the concept of art, with exhibitions, collaborations and discussions, in an active, living house and home.

Sven-Harry’s art museum is owned and run by a foundation with the mission to promote activities in the field of art history, architecture and construction.

LUMAS & Karolina Modig on collecting art

This month we are focusing on the more commercial side of art. Namely the collecting thereof. The international art photography gallery LUMAS has invited us to their space, both to look at some of their fantastic art photography - but also to meet with journalist and author Karolina Modig. She is just releasing her book Häng Konsten Lågt about how she became an art collector with only 50 000 SEK as a starting budget and how to train your eye for art. Karolina will share some of her findings on collecting art and we will have time to explore the current artwork on display in the gallery. See you there!

I always hang my pictures quite low in order to make you approach the pictures with your stomach rather than with your eyes.
— Annika von Hausswolff

About Häng Konsten Lågt

*In swedish

Tänker du ibland att det skulle vara roligt att ha mer konst hemma? Har du stått inför ett konstverk och känt ha-begär? Funderat över var man kan hitta konst i olika prisklasser? Kanske köpt ett verk och fått blodad tand, vill leta vidare, skaffa mer kunskap, ta det till nästa nivå? Då är det här din bok.

Många känner en osäkerhet kring var man ska leta efter konst och vad man bör tycka om. Tänker att konstvärlden mest är för dem med obegränsat med pengar eller konstutbildning. Det är inte sant. Häng konsten lågt hjälper dig att träna dina konstögon, ta reda på vad du tycker om och får dig att våga lita på din egen smak.

Häng konsten lågt förklarar vad det innebär att köpa konst på galleri, auktion, digitalt och direkt av konstnären, och beskriver hur man kan gå tillväga för att hitta bra konst för en begränsad budget. I boken möter du konstnärer, gallerister, samlare och andra konstexperter som ger sina personliga råd och tips. Via forskningsresultat får du en inblick i hur konsten kan påverka oss som individer. Du får även följa med författaren Karolina Modig på en personlig resa där hon bygger en konstsamling för 50 000 kronor.

Markus Schinwald @ Magasin III

We're back. After some well needed vacation we have a great start of the autumn prepared for you. On Friday the 18th of September we have been invited by Magasin III to come and enjoy their current exhibition and curator Tessa Praun will give us a private tour! How rad is that?

8 am sharp as usual, directions to Magasin III in Frihamnen you can find at their homepage. Sign up below*

 

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION: Markus Schinwald

In 2015, Magasin III has the pleasure of presenting a major solo exhibition of the Austrian artist Markus Schinwald. Based on interests ranging from psychology and literature to dance and the history of fashion, he explores the idea of the human body as a cultural construction. He is fascinated by the possibilities, but also the conflicts,  we can experience with our bodies and also how our bodies work as a stage for our inner life; filled with lust, driving forces, fears, and inhibitions. The viewer meets sculptures of splayed table legs, distorted 19th century portraits, marionettes, films without beginning or end in site-specific installations. The artist himself describes his work as a form of introspective experiences trying to present our complex relationship to ourselves.

Pehr Hilleström @ Sven-Harry's Art Museum

2015-05-07
 

#13: 18th-century art

For our May session we're thrilled to invite you to Sven Harry's Art Museum to enjoy the work by the Swedish artist Pehr Hilleström, in the exhibition A focus on homes.  We'll meet at 8 am as usual, and breakfast will be served. 

Warm welcome!

At the top of the “gold house”, designed by Gert Wingårdh and his team of architects, is a replica of the ground floor of Sven-Harry’s 18th-century manor Ekholmsnäs. How was this manor decorated in the 18th century? No one knows today, but, in dialogue with this “rooftop home”, Sven-Harry’s Art Museum is organising an exhibition of an artist who has affectionately portrayed Swedish 18th-century interiors in great detail.

Most of the works in the exhibition belong in private collections and have not been shown to the public before. Nordiska museet, Stockholm University, Norrköpings konstmuseum, Malmö museum, Göteborgs konstmuseum, Gävleborgs museum and Östergötlands museum have also contributed generously to the exhibition.


About Pehr Hilleström

Pehr Hilleström was a painter at the court of King Gustav III, where he portrayed the magnificent royal interiors. But he was just as comfortable portraying middle-class homes, with their upstairs and downstairs inhabitants engaged in their day-to-day activities, or farm interiors, the great Stockholm fire, jousting competitions and still-lifes. He peeped behind the scenes at the Bollhuset theatre and Gustav III’s opera, portraying the famous actors, dancers and singers of the time. Hilleström painted mines, anchor smithies, and glass blowers in front of their kilns at the glassworks on Kungsholmen. We are fascinated by the lighting in 18th-century homes. Wax and tallow candles were expensive and only used sparingly, even on special occasions. Hilleström has captured this everyday light exquisitely.

He was born on the island of Väddö 1732. His father, Captain Pehr Hilleström, had been a prisoner of war in Russia in 1719-1723 but managed to return to Sweden and settled with his brother, who was the provost Väddö. Pehr Hilleström had twelve siblings. In 1743, the family moved to Stockholm, where they lived on a frugal income. Hilleström embarked on his artistic career at the mere age of ten, first as an apprentice to the landscape and mural painter Johan Philip Korn (1727-1796). Between 1744 and 1747, he studied under the German-born fan painter Christian Fehmer. At the Royal Academy of Drawing in Stockholm he was taught by the masters Taraval and Rehn. Aged twelve, he was apprenticed to the hautelisse weaver Jean Louis Duru. When Duru died in 1753, Hilleström took over his uncompleted assignments, including a canopy for the throne at Stockholm Palace. When he was 23, he went to Paris to study weaving and painting. In 1759, Hilleström married Ulrica Lode (1737-1779), the daughter of a vicar in Harmånger and Jättendal in Hälsingland.  It is her slim figure that features in many of Hilleström’s interiors. His wife lived to see him appointed royal court painter in 1776, but when he was made professor at the Royal Academy she had been dead for many years. Six years before he died, Hilleström made a catalogue of all his works. The list is impressive, with more than 1,000 paintings.

“What do you do with an art collection when it is complete? If you donate it to a museum it ends up in their basement. No, I want everyone to be able to enjoy my art the way I do.” Sven-Harry Karlsson. 

This was the idea that finally led to the founding of the museum, which opened on 27 March, 2011. Sven-Harry’s art museum is a spectacular building with a gleaming brass facade, in the middle of Stockholm, just by Vasaparken.

Sven-Harry’s art museum, a wonderfully golden building designed by Gert Wingårdh and Anna Höglund, unites a variety of activities: in addition to the art gallery and Sven-Harry’s “home”, it also houses a restaurant, apartments and commercial premises. We have a broad and varied spectrum of contemporary and classical art and endeavour constantly to expand the concept of art, with exhibitions, collaborations and discussions, in an active, living house and home.

Sven-Harry’s art museum is owned and run by a foundation with the mission to promote activities in the field of art history, architecture and construction.

1 year anniversary: Daytime Art Session @ Story Hotel
Apr
25
2:00 PM14:00

1 year anniversary: Daytime Art Session @ Story Hotel

Early Art is celebrating 1 year (!) in April and we're gonna celebrate by throwing our very first Daytime Art Session.

 

ACTS


Albakin (Music)


Rojda Sekersöz (Spoken Word)

Rojda is a part of the poetic network Revolution Poetry and besides being a poet she is also a  director. 


Heyra (Music)

Honest, vibrant, clear and grand are the words that best describe the sound of Heyra's slow rock. Beneath the influences of psychedelia, organic rock and mellow mystery lies the barren blues of the pale scandinavian winter. 


Elin & Ida (DJ)

Every daytime session needs its DJs. We're happy to announce that ours will be the DJ duo Elin & Ida! They’ve been spreading sweet tunes over Stockholm spots like Nada, Vigårda, Sommar and Scandic Malmen, and on the 25th they’ll be with us at Story Hotel. Woot woot!


Charlie Lou (Music)

Charlie Lou makes emotional pop mixing melancholy with dance, naive pop melodies with powerful chorus, modern tones with synths and drum machines from the 80's. The sound has been described by many as a mix between Mauro Scocco, Phoenix and Kent. You wouldn't want to miss it.


I'm most definitely coming!

The list is closed. We look forward to seeing you on our next session. 

To be able to attend the session you need to sign up for the guest list.

Galleri Charlotte Lund: YEONDOO JUNG

2015-03-31
 

#11: Contemporary Photo

On March 31, in collaboration with Galleri Charlotte Lund, we're thrilled to invite you to the exhibition B-Camera by Yeondoo Jung - an artist internationally recognized as one of the leading Korean contemporary photo and video artists. As usual, we'll meet at 8 am and breakfast will be served. 

We hope to see you there!
 

About the exhibition

Yeondoo Jungʼs series B–Camera reconstitutes specific scenes from movies in the artistʼs memory. The artist chooses well-known movies that cross physical and symbolic boundaries of race, culture, and national identity. He also chooses the filmʼs title as the name of his artwork. The audience experiences at the same time their own memories of the movie and the layers of the artwork itself. The nature of the work emphasizes the blurred lines between current phenomenological reality and cinematic fantasy. It is composed as a diptych of photographic works. One part is a layered work of cutout photographs where each element is shot and produced individually. The second is shot from a side angle as if captured in the making of the first layered image. Together these images represent a cinematic spectacle as constructed by the artist. The clearly fabricated three dimensional image represents on one hand fantasy, while the flat photograph gives a sense of location and awareness.

PARIS POP-UP Session with Paola Bjäringer

PARIS POP-UP Session with Paola Bjäringer

2015-03-27

On Friday the 27th of March we are delighted to invite you to our second POP-UP session. This time in Paris and with the Franco-Swedish gallerist, design consultant and collector Paola Bjäringer. Paola will open up her amazing gallery-apartment between Pont Neuf and the Pont des Arts for us and we will have a chat about her work, and about the field of "design-art". 

Could you think of a better way to start off a Friday? We can't. 

Bienvenus!

ABOUT PAOLA BJÄRINGER

Paola Bjäringer discovered the field of design when writing master thesis within sociology at the London School of Economics. She was fascinated by the relationships between gender and objects, and decided to choose the signification and symbolism of women’s sex toys around the world as her research focus. Her work would lead her to discover that the objects she was studying, although quintessentially intimate and feminine, were mostly designed by men. In light of this paradox, Paola decided to produce a series of sex toys designed by and for women. Together with the renowned French designer Matali Crasset she developed the first “lovetoy” of her collection. This collection inspired Paola to engage in a broader examination of objects and human relationships in our contemporary societies. These reflections became a book bringing together works by a group of designers which was entitled Love Design. This led to a series of exhibitions in several European capitals on the social role of design.

Since then, Paola have opened up her own gallery (Slott gallery), worked as a collector, publisher and curator. Today, Paola works with limited edition furniture and design series, interior decoration and architecture, and with discovering new talented designers in her magnificent 160 m2 showroom-apartment nestled between the Pont Neuf and the Pont des Arts next to the Seine.

COPENHAGEN POP UP @ LARMgalleri
Feb
27
8:00 AM08:00

COPENHAGEN POP UP @ LARMgalleri

People of Copenhagen - you're in for a treat! On Friday the 27th of February we're arranging a pop-up session for you to enjoy. Together with LARMgalleri at Bredgade we will treat you with a morning of art from the Danish artist Kaspar Oppen Samuelsen - who of course will be joining us for the session.  The session starts at 8 am and we'll be finished in time for you to head to school/work. So come look at art and have some breakfast with us! Scroll down for sign-ups!
 

About the exhibition: What do we do, when we land?

LARMgalleri is very pleased to present a solo exhibition by Kaspar Oppen Samuelsen What do we do, when we land?

Over the past few years, Kaspar Oppen Samuelsen has been interested in the painted paper collage, with a special eye for the relatively abstract spaces combined with the materiality of the paper and the transparency of the colours. He has been preoccupied with the hierarchy between figure and space, the horizontal and vertical lines the paper composition creates and the way the characters in their various costumes comment on this.

Many of the characters in Kaspar Oppen Samuelsen's pictures are taken from earlier works to investigate what can happen when the context of their relationship changes. The exhibition title; What do we do, when we land? can be read as a metaphor for the expectation of the new and undiscovered, knowing that sooner or later the balloon will deflate.

About Kaspar Oppen Samuelsen

Kaspar Oppen Samuelsen (born 1977) lives and works in Copenhagen. He studied at Goldsmiths College in London 2000-03 and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2008-11. Oppen Samuelsen has seen a significant interest from both home and abroad and exhibited at Treignac Projet, Treignac (FR), Nakagawa Gallery, Tokyo (JP), Neue Berliner Räume, Berlin (DE), Charlotte Fogh, Aarhus, Vejen Kunstmuseum and Traneudstillingen in Copenhagen. Over the past year, Oppen Samuelsen has worked with several public commisions in Denmark including The New High Court in Viborg and VIA University College in Aarhus.

About LARMgalleri

LARMgalleri is located in the heart of Copenhagen with The Design Museum, The Royal Castle, and The Royal Art Academy as some of our neighbours. LARMgalleri have had an emphasis on contemporary European artists but have also shown artists from North America, The Middle East and South America exhibiting works by acclaimed artists such as Robert Mangold and Tony Matelli, Kaspar Oppen Samuelsen, Nicola Samori, and Gavin Turk. The unique premises originally housed Copenhagen's first private pharmacy established in 1758 by royal permission. Today the baroque interior creates an intriguing contrast to the contemporary art presented in the gallery.

Bokpoesi at Stockholm Chamber of Commerce

7:30 AM07:30

Bokpoesi at Stockholm Chamber of Commerce

This Tuesday we have been invited to Stockholm Chamber of Commerce for a collaboration: They are arranging a breakfast seminar with a discussion around the private museum market in Stockholm, and Early Art is invited to kick off the event with an Early Art session. So to start the morning off we have invited the artist/poet Anna Kristinasson who is the artist behind the oh so wonderful Instagram account Bokpoesi. The session starts at 7.30 am with an exclusive vernissage filled with selected work from Anna's collection, and she will of course be there to answer questions about her art. At 8 am, a discussion led by Stockholm Chamber of Commerce's CEO Maria Rankka will follow. Sign ups open on Tuesday the 10th of February at 11 am. 

*This event will be held in Swedish
 

About Anna Kristiansson

Anna studies journalism at Jakobsberg's folkhögskola, and for the past months she has started to create poetry, because she actually does not write the words - but selects the words of others. By crossing out words and whole sentences on pages of books she creates new combinations of the original author's words, giving the pages new meanings and feelings. Her poetry have gained a lot of attention in very short time - every day more than 6000 (!) people read her poems. We suggest you be one of them.

About the seminar (In Swedish)

Det råder museiboom i Stockholm med nya museer som bland annat Artipelag, Sven-Harrys konstmuseum och ABBA the museum. Sedan 2010 har fem nya museer öppnats i Stockholm, alla privata initiativ. Tre av dessa, Fotografiska, ABBA The Museum och Artipelag, har tagit sig in på tio-i-topp-listan över de mest populära museerna i Stockholm på resesajten Tripadvisor. En trend på många håll i världen är att privata konstsamlare medverkar till att bygga museer och konsthallar som gör samlingarna tillgängliga för allmänheten. De privata museerna bidrar både till bredd och djup på det kulturella området.
 
På detta frukostseminarium tar Stockholms Handelskammare ett samlat grepp om den privata museimarknaden. Hur ser den ut? Vad tillför de privata institutionerna till Stockholms kulturliv, konstnärligt kulturellt och innehållsmässigt? Vilka är utmaningarna framåt? Diskussionen leds av Maria Rankka. Övriga deltagare är bland annat Mattias Hansson, vd, ABBA The Museum, Jan Broman, vd, Fotografiska och Sara Arrhenius, chef på Bonniers konsthall.
 

I'm definitely coming!

On the 19th of January we invite you to Svenskt Tenn Strandvägen 5 to view their fantastic collection of artful craft work and listen to the story of how Svenskt Tenn's founder Estrid Ericson together with Josef Frank built a company with a continuos outflow of bold art. How they created the elegant and boldly patterned personal interior design style that continues to pervade the collection to this day.

Excerpt from Skall (In Swedish)

Civilisationen har kämpat

förgäves:

Jag förblir

ett myller av organ och nerver,

sprakande som

eltrådar spända

högt över åkrarna, morgonen efter

det stora regnet.

About Skall

*in Swedish
Agnes Gerners dikter fångar en förlust som svänger svansen över stolar, bord, porslin och äter allt i sin väg, som fortgår när åren blir tyngre och snabbare, när barnet växer ifatt och förbi. Men i naturen slår hjärtan, tassar spelar, bark bågnar, det hackas och ruvas, förnyelsen pågår. Skall är en bok om människoblivande och djurblivande, om sorg och liv, berusning och kärlek. Om att, som slutmeningen lyder: ”kräva ett liv som väger upp för döden”  - Albert Bonniers Förlag

About Lantmäteriet

*in Swedish
Det är en stäm­nings­mät­tad och myll­rande roll­dikt­ning som utspe­lar sig i civi­li­sa­tio­nens och eko­sy­ste­mets märk­liga skeenden. Här möts motor­vä­gar och svam­par, ciga­ret­tän­dare och alba­tros­ser, kärn­kraft­verk och vit­ha­jar. En lant­mä­tare föder upp djur i gran­nens bad­rum och en rökande mård lyss­nar till fågelsången. Det är den för­lo­rade kon­trol­lens poesi: Lantmätarens mate­ma­tiska kart­lägg­ning av jor­dy­tan utma­nas av det god­tyck­liga i livet: sälar, ord, ömhet och oro. - 1oTAL Bok

Theodor Kallifatides: art with words

This monday in October we invite you to join us for a morning with one of the stars on the Swedish literature scene - Theodor Kallifatides. He released his latest novel, Med sina läppars svalka, in mid-september and will be reading an excerpt from it at the lovely, new HTL Kungsgatan. We're excited, to say the least. We have read the full novel, and let's put it like this: You will want to wake up for this, even though it's monday morning.

About the novel 

Med Sina Läppars Svalka

 Source: albertbonniersforlag.se

Source: albertbonniersforlag.se

*in Swedish

Elena föds 1932 i en grekisk by med nio kyrkor. Theodor Kallifatides nya roman följer henne från uppväxten tills idag, då hon bor i Stockholm och målar ikoner. Det är ett dramatiskt liv. Hon tvingas uppleva den nådelösa tyska ockupationen 1941 och det ännu mer nådelösa inbördeskriget som följde efter. År av avrättningar, politiska förföljelser, grymma förbrytelser och djup fattigdom tvingar henne att söka ett annat liv, först i Australien och sedan i Sverige.

Berättelsen om Elenas liv blir en parallell till Greklands historia. Samtidigt är den en skildring av ett äktenskap. Elena gifter sig som mycket ung med skolläraren Giannis och de håller ihop trots alla påfrestningar. Deras långa samvaro ställs i kontrast till deras dotters bittra skilsmässa. 

Romanen berättar också den moderna emigrationens historia – till Australiens stora himmel och till Aachens mörka gruvor. Det är en trasig värld som ska sys ihop av ännu trasigare människor. Men Elenas kärlek till sin man och hans kärlek till henne håller livet upprätt, trots att en plågsam hemlighet kastar sin mörka skugga över henne. 

Med sina läppars svalka är berättad med humor och skönhet, sensuellt och kärleksfullt. Det är kort sagt en bok av Theodor Kallifatides. (Excerpt from www.alberbonniersforlag.se)

Subway art: Ulrik Samuelson @ Kungsträdgården

Did you know that Stockholm has a 110 km long art exhibition underground? The subway stations are filled with word class modern sculptures, mosaics, paintings and installations. One of our faves are the station in Kungsträdgården. It was designed by artist Ulrik Samuelson 1978-1986 and is filled with symbolic imagery. Sign up below and join us there on friday for an out of the ordinary art experience. And breakfast, of course.

 

About the artist

Samuelson has also done the art piece "Parabol" outsige Hötorgsskrapa 3 at Sveavägen in Stockholm, transformed the entrance of Stockholms Stadsteater in a Shakesperian fashion, and exhibited in several institutions internationally including The New Museum of Contemporary Art in the USA; The Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris in France; and Louisiana in Denmark.

A tuesday reading with Sandra Beijer: Det handlar om dig

A tuesday reading with Sandra Beijer: Det handlar om dig

Summer is coming. What better way to start it than with a book?  This coming tuesday author and blogger Sandra Beijer will read an excerpt from her first novel ”Det handlar om dig” which was released in April. 

We're glad to announce that the event will be held at very recently opened and fantastic hotel Miss Clara, where (of course) breakfast will be served.  Make sure you're on time. It will be splendid - we're sure of it.

Note that this event will be held in Swedish.

About the book (in Swedish)

"Jag är femton år, sju månader och tre dagar första gången vi träffas. Jag står i ett vardagsrum hemma hos någon som heter Erik. Du sitter med en ölburk i knät framför ett svart piano. Du är femton år, med konkav bröstkorg och blanka ögon efter den senaste burken du tömt och kastat mellan stolsbenen. Jag känner dig inte men senare, när vi står i kön till badrummet, ringer din mobiltelefon och du svarar på ryska. Fyra timmar senare följer du mig hem."

Efter ett möte på en fest under en sommarnatt är ingenting längre detsamma. Plötsligt handlar varje fredagsnatt, varenda mörkt dansgolv och varje stulen folköl om honom. Om de tre födelsemärkena över hans kind, om ryska meningar på en parkbänk och om exploderande sms som aldrig besvaras. Om han bara kunde titta lite till, höra av sig lite oftare, komma lite närmare. Om han bara kunde se, om så bara för ett enda ögonblick, att allt handlar om honom.

Det handlar om dig är historien om den första, stora kärleken. Den utspelar sig i Stockholms innerstad under några febriga höstmånader och man kastas mellan hopp och förtvivlan, lycka och sorg, upphetsning och apati. Sandra Beijer berättar sin historia på ett poetiskt men ändå enkelt och självklart sätt och alla som någon gång har varit kära kan känna igen sig - det spelar ingen roll om man är 15 eller 45.

About Sandra

Sandra Beijer, born 1984, is since 2005 the blogger behind the oh so frequented Niotillfem. She has a background in copywriting and has worked in both Stockholm and New York. Apart from blogging she is also a freelance writer. 

I'm most definitely coming!

*The spots for this event are now all taken - if you want to be put on the waiting list please email Sofia. And to not miss out on the next event - sign up for the newsletter here.

As such, they are the oldest auction house in the world still operating today. They hold large quality auctions every spring and autumn at their own premises in Stockholm (Modern Art & Design, Contemporary and Fine Art & Antiques).

The times for the upcoming Contemporary auction are as follows:

The Exhibition Hanna Andersson - ONE (MIDDLE) FINGER

This series of work is my own journey - a summary of relief, frustration, rebellion and perception. A surreal landscape where I with my other selves (Pony Crew) solitarily ascend together or maybe we´re all by ourselves. We climb, trying to get up to the mountain. Some jump, some fall down the hole. This is where we all gather. I hope there is place for everyone. But I don't know. Anyways - I want to. 

 

I'm most definitely coming!

All the spots for this event are taken - to be sure not to miss the next one sign up for our news letter!
