ART & CRAFT
Colorful ceramics and useful everyday objects; we list four small but very good exhibitions currently on show in Sweden right now, focusing on glass and ceramics. Taking bookings ahead and allowing a limited amount of visitors, its a well needed injection of color and energy after a long period of digital only shows.
MIA E GÖRANSSON
Artist Mia E Göransson builds surrealistic and fascinating landscapes with her colourful ceramics; it’s like stepping into a different world where opposites attract and machine parts co exist next to body parts in a very natural way. Her current exhibition ”Som om…” (”As if…”) runs at Berg gallery in Stockholm until 17/4 and is a collection of thoughts and shapes born in her studio during the past year.
Berg Gallery until 7/4
Asked by Sotheby’s to curate a show, young art dealer Nikodem Calczynski of Odem Atelier decided to gather a colorful and expressive mix of artists from around the globe. ”I want to show what is going on within the world of contemporary ceramics. It is colorful, bold and sometimes bizarre,” Calczynski says. The small but lively exhibition features 20 artists from four continents and eleven countries, many that showing in Scandinavia for the first time.
Flux until 4/4
”I see myself as a potter, as being a part of a very old tradition,” ceramicist Calle Forsberg says. ”I try to absorb and master a knowledge that has developed over several thousand years. Then I try to make use of it here and now in my own way.” Calle Forsberg is one of Swedens most sough after ceramicists, collaborating and making fine dinnerware for th best Scandinavian restaurants. The humble show at Kaolin in Stockholm showcase some of his own work.
Kaolin until 7/4
