[Thursday] Tomorrow Klas and I have another look at a potential new studio. I really want, and need, to find somewhere to settle and get on with making. Without such a place it is all to easy for me to […]

Urgency: new studio sought

On Friday I looked around what could easily be a great studio. The place would suit up to about ten individual artists, or perhaps fewer if I/we can pull off a collaboration with ABF (a well established national adult education […]

Vår konst – Open studios iv

Next to my name and venue number in the guide it says (because that is what I wrote in my entry form): Installation and objects. I wonder if people have been intrigued or confused by that description. From chatting with […]

Vår konst – Open studios iii

Just as realised that it was almost time to ‘close’ yesterday my phone rang. It was Eva, who I first met when I visited her studio during last year’s Vår konst, she apologised for being late and wanted to know […]

Vår konst – Open studios ii

What I liked about the pace of visitors on Friday was that I was able to spend time with each of them. There was only one occasion when two groups overlapped. With the kind of work that I make, and […]

Deciding to participate in the town’s Easter Open Studio weekend has been interesting – and it is only the first of the four days that I am ‘open’. I spent the last week installing my own work throughout my apartment. […]

Studio …

At just after 8.00 this morning I signed a contract on a studio that Klas and I are going to share. The space is a former garage, and has most recently been the clubhouse for a motorbike club! It needs […]

A fantastic week: part i

As I walked through the doors that separate ‘arrivals’ from the body of the airport I immediately spotted Ken sitting, as we had arranged, with a cup of tea at the cafe. His plane from London arrived half an hour […]

and now in Swedish

I did it! Yesterday evening’s presentation was my first ever in Swedish – and it was fine! My style of preparation for speaking in front of people is to make copious notes to support my slides. I am conscious that […]

Go-Go … with only one ‘Go’

It is wonderfully clear and (very) cold evening. After two evenings of snowfall, which I spent reading the (Swedish) instruction manual for my seldom-used digital SLR camera, I thought that it would be an ideal time to go take some […]

Last minute … end of year …

Just back from replacing both a lamp-holder and lamp in Go-Go. I had already replaced the lamp a couple of times thinking that it perhaps overheated, however having moved and re-positioned the lamp-holder and it still burning out a bulb […]

Go-Go (for Enköping) is up and running! It has been a really good experience from my initial and very casual chat with Lovisa through to cycling by it this morning on my way to and from the gym. The ‘opening’ […]

A new order of glitter arrived

There are times when there is so much going on that it is tricky to maintain any kind of distance – this is one of those time. It is great that so many things are happening but I am aware […]

Upwards and onwards

Two years ago Antonie, Karin, and I set up an artists’ association* with the idea of creating opportunities for artistic research outside of Stockholm’s art institutions. Last Friday we had our AGM. It did not take long as the we […]

At the end of last week’s ‘cultural policy’ meeting I was introduced to Enköping’s new Cultural Development Worker – Klas.  He is also an artist, and is also looking for a studio!  We had a quick chat about how important […]
