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!
