Studio visits

HENRIK STRÖMBERG
STUDIO VISIT Thursday March 9th 2017 at 4 pm
ARTIST TALK – with Christiane Meixner (Der Tagesspiegel), Thursday March 16th 2017 at 6:30 pm

As the first artist of the second cohort of the Artist in Residence Programme 2017 in cooperation with the Galleries Association of Berlin (lvbg) the photographer Henrik Strömberg (Grundemark Nilsson Gallery) is continuing his work in the AArtist Studio on the roof of the FFO. He will concentrate there on his ongoing work “Object Amnesic – The Compost”. Take the chance to visit this unique studio!

ADDRESS:
AArtist Studio on the roof of the Federal Foreign Office, entrance Kurstraße 36, 10117 Berlin, Germany.

Welcome to the panel discussion LIFE IN THE BUBBLE.

Saturday February 25, 4 pm.
Lindenstrasse 34, Berlin.

Panel:
Presentation Inge Klöpfer, Publicist and Author at the FAZ Sonntagszeitung.
Ivo Wessel, Art collector
Yvon Chabrowski, Video artist
Julia Charlotte Richter, Video artist

NOTE: The discussion will be held in German.

– Why is it, that we live increasingly in our (own) bubbles?
– What are the consequences for our society?

– The trend appears to be toward increasing polarization: is it a threat to democracy?

– How does the art community respond to these developments, and what kind of impact can it make?

These are questions referring to the exhibition LIFE IN THE BUBBLE at the Grundemark Nilsson Gallery. In daily life, each of us is governed by personally created “life bubbles” in which we relate to a social network we have chosen, by which we are linked to people who think and act similarly. This becomes particularly clear in our choice of friends, whether in the real or virtual world. In our increasingly global society this supposedly protected space is becoming more and more threatened by the outside world, creating fears which in turn lead to behavioral changes.

In the exhibition nine international video artists present twelve works which consider this societal phenomenon from several perspectives and at different meta-levels.

Paris Photo 2016

After the solo show at Paris Photo 2015 with the artist Dawid (Sweden, 1949), we will this year present selected art works by three of our artists: Sascha Weidner (Germany, 1976 – 2015), Inka&Niclas (Sweden, 1985 and 1984) and Margot Wallard (France, 1978).

The work of Sascha Weidner deals with the creation of a radical subjective pictorial world. His photographs are characterized by perceptions, aspirations and illuminate the world of the subconscious. His work has been exhibited and published internationally.
The publisher Hatje Cantz has, just recently released the book Intermission II.

For Margot Wallard the forest became a place of resistance, somewhere where she could give free rein to that part of herself that does not cheat. With long exposures, leaving the shutter sufficient time to etch onto the film of the movements of the soul. Besides being her own model, she scans the things around her – animal, vegetable or mineral. By using the means of recording reality in its purest expression, she finds a different way of coming to grips with it. The series Natten will be published as a book in 2017.

The artist couple Inka & Niclas work circulates around expectations on nature and the landscape, and how photographs have formed those expectations. Differentiating between the physical and photographic worlds they are interested in the act of taking a photograph and often work with very momentarily made installations and actions done only for the camera.

NOTE! Inka&Niclas will sign their new book The Belt of Venus and the Shadow of the Earth (Kerber Verlag) on Friday November 11, 6pm at our booth D30.

Martin Mlecko

We mourn for our artist and dear friend Martin Mlecko, * October 15th, 1951 – † September 25th, 2016.
We remember him with a reminder of his work Les choses de la vie.
Wolfgang Schöddert wrote:

“Berlin, October 14th, 2012

Dear Martin,

So now your things of life are being turned into book and for this occasion I thought for a long time about first describing them from an art historical point of view. In the meantime I`m very certain of the fact that I am incapable of this since I am too close to the individual subjects and I connect each of them too closely with you in order for me to still approach the task retrospectively and professionally. I know how these things surround you, I know the colours and some of their histories, and because I’ve witnessed the evolution of the series since we installed them for the first time in Rudolf Springer’s private viewing rooms, I consider some of the subjects to also be the things of my life.

The questions that have connected me to the series from the beginning are still important to me today. Whether the white painted wall of an apartment is already painting? Whether in selecting a pigment, is the choice between silicate mineral paint or lime paint already indication of an artistic approach? What the structure of the surface means and what role does the traceability of a brush compared to the traces of a lambskin or artificial roller play? What impact does furniture have? Does its size relate to the wall and to the room as well? What effect do flowers have? What is it about the materiality of a hand towel and a freshly peeled bundle of asparagus lying on top of it?

At first this thinking about the quality of the everyday made me think about the connections to architecture. How does modern architecture deal with the possibilities and shortcomings of our perception? Do ideal proportions and relationships perhaps exist, and if so what is their effect, and ultimately is architectura perhaps indeed mater artium? With this and many other thoughts I encountered your enthusiasm for Joris Huysmans’ Against the Grain twenty years ago. I remember you finding more and more antiquarian copies, sometimes bound in blue or yellow leather, in order to hand them out to friends so that they could also get to know the life of Duc Jean Floressas Des Esseintes. He, who elected to look for happiness in absolute solitude following a life of excess in Paris, understood his house as a place he could devote to a beauty that touches all the senses and the experience of colours and materials, of aromas and all their subtleties and of many, equally enchanting, as well as extravagant details. Ultimately, this perfect augmented my thoughts and your things of life as the contemporary translation of the Duc Des Esseintes’ worldview that Huysmans describes.

You once said it would be enough to point the way and everyone must decide the rest for themselves. I think the things of life, the choses de la vie, were and are in this context a wonderful project!

Until soon, most warmly, Wolfgang”

DEUTSCH

Wir trauern um unseren Künstler und lieben Freund Martin Mlecko 15.10.1951 – 25.09.2016.
Wir gedenken ihm mit einer Erinnerung an seine Arbeit Die Dinge des Lebens.
Wolfgang Schöddert schrieb dazu:

“Berlin, 14. Oktober 2012

Lieber Martin,

nun wird also aus Deinen Dingen des Lebens ein Buch und ich habe lange überlegt, sie aus diesem Anlass einmal kunsthistorisch zu beschreiben. Inzwischen bin ich mir allerdings sehr sicher, dass ich das nicht kann, da mir die einzelnen Motive viel zu nah sind und sich jedes einzelne zu sehr mit Dir verbindet, als dass ich es noch retrospektiv und professionell bearbeiten könnte. Ich weiß, wie Dich die Dinge umgeben, kenne ihre Farben und einige ihrer Geschichten und da ich die Entwicklung der Serie erlebe, seitdem wir sie in den Räumen von Rudolf Springer zum ersten Mal gehängt haben, sehe ich manches Motiv inzwischen auch als ein Ding meines Lebens an.

Bis heute sind mir die Fragen wichtig, die sich für mich von Anfang an mit der Serie verbunden haben. Ob die weiß gestrichene Wand einer Wohnung bereits Malerei ist? Ob sich in der Entscheidung zu einer Dispersion, zu einer mineralischen Farbe oder zu einer Kreide schon eine künstlerische Haltung ausdrückt? Was die Struktur der Oberfläche bedeutet und welche Rolle die Nachvollziehbarkeit eines Pinsels gegenüber den Spuren einer Rolle aus Lammfell oder Kunststoff spielt? Was bewirkt ein Möbel? Steht seine Größe in einem Verhältnis zur Wand und darüber hinaus zum Raum? Was bewirken Blumen? Was ist mit der Stofflichkeit eines Handtuchs und einem Bund Spargel der darauf liegt, nachdem er von Hand geschält wurde?

Mich hat das Nachdenken über die Qualität des Alltäglichen zunächst in den Zusammenhängen der Architektur interessiert. Wie geht modernes Bauen mit den Möglichkeiten und Defiziten unserer Wahrnehmung um? Gibt es vielleicht ideale Proportionen und Verhältnisse und wenn es sie gibt, was bewirken sie und ist die architectura am Ende vielleicht tatsächlich mater artium? Damit und mit vielen anderen Gedanken, traf ich vor zwanzig Jahren auf Deine Begeisterung für Joris Huysmans Gegen den Strich. Ich erinnere mich, dass Du immer wieder, manchmal in blaues oder gelbes Leder gebundene, antiquarische Ausgaben gefunden hast, um sie an Freunde zu verschenken, damit auch sie das Leben des Duc Jean Floressas Des Esseintes kennen lernen können. Er, der nach einem ausschweifenden Leben in Paris sein Glück in einer vollkommenen, selbst gewählten Einsamkeit sucht, hat sein Haus als einen Ort begriffen, das er einer alle Sinne berührenden Schönheit und dem Erleben von Farben und Materialien, von Düften und all ihren Feinheiten und von vielen, ebenso zauberhaften, wie mitunter extravaganten Details widmen konnte. Ich sah darin eine ideale Bereicherung meiner Gedanken und Deine Dinge des Lebens schließlich als zeitgenössische Übersetzung der von Huymans beschriebenen Weltsicht des Duc Des Esseintes.

Du hast einmal gesagt, es würde genügen, Hinweise zu geben, und den Rest müsse jeder selber entscheiden. Ich glaube, die Dinge des Lebens, die Choses des la vie, waren und sind in diesem Zusammenhang ein wunderbares Projekt!

Auf bald, ganz herzlich
Wolfgang”

We will have a solo show containg a fine selection of Inka and Niclas work.

VIP opening: June 16, 2015 (by invitation only)

Our pop-up exhibition by Pernilla Zetterman can be seen at daytime at LOGE, Friedrichstrasse 210, Berlin-Checkpoint Charlie during the whole summer.

We congratulate JH Engström, winner of the Leica Oscar Barnack Award 2015 for his project Tout Va Bien. Parts of the series were shown by us at Unseen 2014.

Tout Va Bien does not handle a concrete subject in the traditional sense. The Swedish photographer JH Engström intends his project to be seen much more as visual poetry – a photographic narrative with strong autobiographical elements. Despite this, it does not exclusively depict aspects of his own life. Tout Va Bien is a sequence of widely differing images. The winning series includes both portraits and landscapes, as well as bizarre snapshots like the photograph of the birth of his twins. The photographer also switches between exposures in black and white and colour. Engström plays with contrasts and leaves it to viewers to find their own ways of reading and interpreting each picture.


May 2015

The fair AIPAD was a success and we are already looking forward to the next spring in New York.
Works by several of our artists were sold to American Museums and private collectors. We had an all time high selling week!

As we already have announced we are broaden our programme to represent not solely Swedish artists. Our on going show Private is our first collaboration with Martin Mlecko, well-established photo based artist from Germany.
Among other works Mlecko shows a silver gelatin collage of a book-filled wall in an apartment in Eastern Berlin, comprising primarily socialist/Marxist economic literature which become as symbol of decline. If a volume is removed, the entire “system” threatens to collapse. If you would like to attend please contact the gallery in advance, Private is a studio exhibition.

Our upcoming exhibition is a video work to be shown at the exhibition space LOGE by our artist Pernilla Zetterman, known from the Helsinki School.
Separate invitation will be sent.

Dear friends,
some news from us to you.

The group exhibition Macrocosmi in Bologna, Italy is prolonged until february 20.
Check out the film from the opening event at Due Punti Lab.

Our artist Dawid is exhibiting also in Sweden at Konsthallen Hishult until March 8. Urval is a selection of his big and fantastic production during the years.

if you are in Stockholm during February or March you have to see Vårsalongen at Liljevalchs Konsthall. A fantastic group exhibition with 119 Swedish artists at the age from 18 to 90.


January 2015

Dear friends,
we hope you have started the New Year in a good mood for a new exciting art year. It is now time for our pop-up exhibition number two:
Macrocosmi – Ordnungen anderer Art at Grundemark Nilsson Gallery c/o Due Punti Lab in Bologna, Italy.

Dawid

Pernilla Zetterman

Inka and Niclas

Henrik Isaksson Garnell

Our four artists are selected into the group exhibition Macrocosmi – Ordnungen anderer Art. Pascual Jordan, Germany and Martina Cavallarin, Italy has curated the exhibition that will take place during the art fair Arte Fiera Bologna.

Due Punti Lab is an association founded to promote the project communication and research in architecture, design and art through the innovative culture and language of the avant garde.

The macrocosm concerns the world of the extremely large. Here too we make use of various technical aids and models based on physics, mathematics, technology and on philosophy.
In astronomy and cosmology scientists use mathematical models and technical devices such as telescopes and space probes to comprehend the origins, structure and evolution of the universe. Today, the concept of microcosm has been dominated by sociology to mean a small group of individuals whose behaviour is typical of a larger social body encompassing it. A microcosm can be seen as a special kind of epitome. Conversely, a macrocosm is a social body made of smaller compounds.

Dawid´s series MK/AW is a study of the broadcasting patterns can be regarded as the cosmic microwave background. When we think there is no broadcast, maybe it is just us who don´t receive the signals.

Pernilla Zetterman´s snowy works are hiding an intricate story to a racing track in Sweden. Trollbäcken was nearly her home during her carrier as an athlete. As a non-speaking child she used all her force to extend the limits of her physical body.

Inka and Niclas three works are from the series Saga. Human experience lives in the supranatural space between solid realities and phantasmic imaginings, the transformative moments when fantasies magic the tangible into the metaphysical.

Henrik Isaksson Garnell series Fetus conquer the boundaries of our Earth into the entire cosmos. The life forms the artist has created in his laboratory invites us to participate in his own metaphysical world. The series The Painter´s Skin is his latest work. Skin is the covering that provides the body with its shape. It is through the skins function as a sensory organ that we receive stimulation from the outside, and make contact with the world.

January 21-February 20, 2015

Address: Due Punti Lab

Our series of panel discussions will continue.
January 21, 2014, we will hold a panel discussion about „The Gender Perspective Within Photography“. It will be a co-operation with the Embassies of Sweden and Finland. Tuija Lindström was Sweden´s first female Art Professor, and as a strong feminist in a male dominant world of photographers, Lindström was roughly debated. We will discuss how the debate is today. Are there any differences between Sweden, Finland and Germany and do institutions value male and female artists equal when it comes to exhibitions and collections?

Panel members:
Tuija Lindström, Artist, Sweden/Finland
Anna-Kaisa Rastenberger, Director of the Photo Museum in Helsinki, Finland
Power Ekroth, Swedish, International curator in Germany
Dr. Thomas Köhler, Director at Berlinische Galerie in Berlin, Germany

Warmly welcome.


June 2013

Dear Friends,
this spring has been exciting for us. We are now members of AIPAD, the Association of International Photography Dealers and will be exhibiting at their Photography Show in New York in April 2014. More information to come and you can always follow us on Facebook to stay up to date.
We just returned from the art fair SP-Arte in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and we succeeded to place some of our artists in a few more international collections.

Aside from our own programme in Berlin, our artists are exhibiting in several other cities. Inka Lindergård & Niclas Holmström are currently having a solo show at the hotel Vier Jahreszeiten in Hamburg, Germany, and have been selected for a big group show in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in October. Martina Hoogland Ivanow´s big “retrospective” exhibition will open at Kulturhuset in Stockholm, Sweden, this September, and Dawid is exhibiting in the group show Stockholm New at the Museum Thielska galleriet, also in Stockholm.

Our Book of the Month is Julia Peirone´s More Than Violet, publishing house Art and Theory. Peirone is part of the group show Different Distances, currently shown at our space in Berlin. It will be our last exhibition before the summer break and we do recommend you to come and see it. The exhibition will travel to Washington DC in US in September.

We wish you all an enjoyable summer.


January 2013

Swedish Photography would like to wish all our friends and customers a happy, healthy and successful New Year! We have an exciting programme in store for this upcoming season, which will be kicked off on 15 February with the exhibition Deutschland by Gerry Johansson. Until then the gallery remains closed due to renovation of our office and storage.
We successfully concluded 2012 with good sales at the art fair Context Art Miami, which proved to be a great opportunity to introduce our artists to a broad international audience and the US market. The positive feedback we received was more than encouraging and we continue our ambition to place Swedish photography on the international art map.

For a number of our artists, 2013 starts off with solo exhibitions all over Europe: Dawid, who is one of Sweden’s most established and respected photobased artists, is currently shown at Landskrona Museum/Sweden. The exhibition 3D includes his latest series TOYS which we will show later this spring. The exhibition 3D runs until 31 March 2013.

Two of our young and emerging artists, Inka Lindergård & Niclas Holmström, will have their first solo exhibition in Denmark this month. The couple, who won the Swedish Photo Book Award in 2012 will be presenting their new body of work Becoming Wilderness at the gallery Green is Gold in Copenhagen/Denmark. The opening reception is on Friday January 25. The exhibition runs until 03 February 2013.
Since 16 January, three of Lars Tunbjörk’s series are being exhibited at Chateau d’Eau in Toulouse/France. Apart from Winter, which we presented in our last exhibition of 2012, this includes Tunbjörk’s series I love Borås and Office. The show will run until 17 March 2013.

As already mentioned above, we have the honour of showing Gerry Johansson’s series Deutschland, in which he takes the viewer on an unusual photographic journey through Germany’s diverse cultural landscape. Johansson makes us see the country through the Swedish eye – a perspective that is very rare to find. The individual places and objects he portrays are each symbols of a collective socio-cultural identity. The opening takes place on Friday, 15 February, from 7-9 pm. More information to come.

We are looking forward to seeing you at our exhibitions!
Welcome to Swedish Photography.


November 2012

Dear Friends,
welcome to our upcoming events. Here is a newletter to inform you about the season we are entering.

First of all, we’d like to congratulate our artists Inka Lindergård and Niclas Holmström, who won the prestigous award ‚Swedish Photo Book of the Year’. Their award-winning book Watching Humans Watching (2011, Kehrer Verlag) is available for sale at our book store.

We will also announce the book release by our artist Annika Thörn Legzdins, November 10 at 5 p.m. She is publishing her first book Translucence, (2012, Arena) and we are very pleased that the official release event takes place at Swedish Photography. Translucence is our “BOOK OF THE MONTH” for November.

Swedish Photography is going to be on the road again. During December 4-9 we will participate at the art fair CONTEXT Art Miami. We will show works by the following artists: Dawid, Inka Lindergård and Niclas Holmström, Pernilla Zetterman and Edvard Koinberg. Visit us at booth D7.

Panel Discussion
In connection with the „5. European Month of Photography and in cooperation with the Nordic Embassies in Berlin– we present a panel discussion on “Nordic Photography” on November 24 at 5 p.m. Inspired by Lars Tunbjörk’s Winter series, which is currently on show at the gallery, the central topic of the discussion will be the “Nordic Light“. Together with photographers from all five Nordic countries, we want to seek answers to the question whether and how the seasonal changes of the lighting conditions in Scandinavia influence the photographers.

The following photographers will be participating in the panel:
Joakim Eskildsen, Denmark
Riitta Päiväläinen, Finland
Katrin Elvarsdottir, Iceland
Nina Strand, Norway
Lars Tunbjörk, Sweden

The panel discussion will be moderated by Ann-Christin Bertrand, art historian and curator at the well-known exhibition forum C/O Berlin. It will be complemented by a slide show with selected works by all five photographers. Please let us know if you want to visit the event at Felleshus at the Nordic Embassies in Berlin.


September 2012

Autumn is full of good news, a new art season is about to start and our world at Swedish Photography is expanding steadily.

Our youngest artist Henrik Isaksson Garnell has been selected for this year’s Noorderlicht Photofestival in Holland, which will be showcasing 115 selected photographers from 36 countries. Visit the Museum Belvédère and the Heerenveen surroundings between September 2 and October 7.

When it comes to photo festivals, the world’s largest is the Pingyao International Photography Festival (PIP) in Pingyao/China.

From 19- 25 September you have the chance to experience photography from all over the world at PIP.

In late autumn, Chehrehgosha’s truly fascinating narration will be followed by stories from winterly Sweden: from 19 October Swedish Photography will show the series Winter by well- known photographer Lars Tunbjörk. We are looking forward to seeing you!
