I guess we are suppose to write in english so I will give it a try. Matilda and I work in Norrköping, Sweden. We are studying at the University here, but we are both from Stockholm originally. We have worked with per and I think some more of you with a show in Norrköping: (Anti)realism - Workshot 1. It was a great deal of fun trying to arrange all the practical details at an event with 25 participants from Europe and China. We found an great space to use for this event in central Norrköping. We liked it a lot and have recently decided to start using it as a showroom and make exhibitions there regularly.

At the moment I am working with an exhibition that will open in two weeks: Old Media - New Work. It will show paintings from five swedish artists. The theme is the media-painting, you could say. There is a big New Media festival going on in Norrköping at the same time and our show is in one way a comment on that. We are asking: Where lies the new? Is it in the story, the presentation, the estetics or the media? It could be either is my guess.

The participating artists is Magnus Alexandersson, Richard G Carlsson, Anna Kinbom, Fredrik Lindberg and pelle Perlefelt. Please read more (unfortunatly in swedish) on the webpage: Verkstad is the name of the space we use and are trying to establish as a spot for art in Norrkoping. Translates sort of as Workshop.

Thats it for now.
