View from the balcony in Stockholm, Söder.
What a morning. Good morning October, goodbye Jönköping.
Above is one of the first images taken with my new camera. It is so good, it has an inbuilt LAN which means I can connect it to my iPhone and save the images to it, and even use it as a remote. Oh the wonders of technology.
Just boarded the bus to Stockholm, it will be a long ride…
Last day in Jönköping, tomorrow morning I’m heading to Stockholm again to prepare for my exhibition at NAU Gallery opening on Thursday October 2nd. (Hudiksvallsgatan 4, at 6-8 pm)
Today I got a letter from Skatteverket, I now officially have a company! Celebrated by purchasing a Canon EOS 70D, or well, with the scholarship money. Now my photo art can develop and I can document everything with something other than my iPhone.
So, a good day.
See you in Stockholm!
IndustriNatt, Munksjö Fabrik. The empty factory was for the evening filled with art & music. 20 artists exhibited and painted, a big light installation took place in one of the rooms and Moto Boy and D.A.F. (among others) played live. All for free. It was a really nice evening with lovely friends.
And the factory, I could definility imagine turning it into a art space. The rooms are big, wonderful and the location is not at all bad - binding the newly planned southern centrum with the older centrum. The building has been sold to two realtors, that wants to turn it into an art space - but it’s always an question of money. But if I had a say, I would give money for that rather than other things in this city. It is time for a good high qualitative art space in Jönköping.
It was the funeral of Konstnärsgården, that existed for 50 years and now due to budget cuts and who knows what have to move out. A lot of angry feelings and grief has been ventilated for months, and today was the latest exhibition ever, called Goodbye.
