👁️ Exhibition # 25
“Bits of the Biennale and the Silk Road in Lund”
Intro with an example
The photo above is a snapshot of one of my studio/exhibition rooms – the one which also contains a 1200-volume peace library in the middle of the room plus small things from around the world – such as salt from where Gandhi ended his Salt March, bits of the Berlin Wall, handicraft from Iran and so on.
It’s on the first floor of our house at a quiet street of Lund in southern Sweden, some 90 square meters. Visitors tell me it’s more like a home than a gallery. That makes me very happy.
But these days, few can visit. The Coronavirus hit the world in March 2020, it has changed our lives and society and certainly also the art world.
Consequently, I want this art home to offer you an online experience – rich but not complicated to move around in – that resembles as much as possible your ‘live’ visit.
In online exhibitions – which I indicate by 👁️ – the point is to try to give you, the visitor, a sense of being there in a physical art space.
Below is an example – the 25th exhibition “Bits of the Biennale and Silk Road in Lund”.
The works sit on a rough-surface wall like in a Venezian palace or an old warehouse in London. And like in a real exhibition room, nothing moves; you dwell for as long as you like at each work – and press “More” when you want to get more information about it – and press the arrows to go to the next work.
To view SPAR the right way, begin by clicking the right-hand arrows. And follow the future online exhibitions above as they are created.
SPAR Exhibition Part 1 – “Works in the SPAR Installation”
SPAR Exhibition Part 2 – “China 1983”
As mentioned above, the second part of the exhibition consists of a series of photos I took in China in 1983 that have been digitalised. It’s the first time I put them on show. You may see more about them in the China 1983 Portfolio and their Shop.
But, first, walk around the exhibition…
Finally, I happen to also have shot a short video of the exhibition – a quick guided tour where it is more difficult to dwell…
