BLACK ASPHALT - GREEN GRASS
Stig SLAS Claesson
Stig Claesson 1928-2008 was an artist and writer. During his productive life, Stig was able to publish over 80 novels and his visual art is found in many homes and public environments.
Black asphalt and green grass are the names of the continents that Stig Claesson moved between in his life and creation. It can also be said that Stig loved both the country and the city. For Stig, roots were important, both the roots that people are born with, but also the roots of the air. Root threads that spread in all directions and root in new places.
Maria Fribergär was born in Malmö and works as a photographer in Stockholm. Friberg is best known for his works on power, masculinity and man's relationship to nature. On Rikstoloven Friberg shows a video that was commissioned by the Hasselblad Center to honor the memory of Erna Hasselblad.
Erna opens with a view of foamy waves that wash over the beach but if Erna is told nothing without Friberg leaves the work open to our own interpretations of the longing, missingness and the temptation to follow the infinite depth of the sea.
DON'T BE AFRAID
Eva Larsson works as a sculptor in Stockholm and is represented in a number of municipalities and county councils.
The installation "Don´t be Afraid" contains a number of sculptures in bronze and ceramics, depicting human figures who in different ways relate to each other. Through small gestures and nuances In body language, a story of courage and friendship is conveyed. The story revolves around daring to take the leap, daring to trust that everything is going well, and the ability to see and receive the support of our fellow human beings.
Cato Lein was born in Norway and has been working as a photographer Stockholm since the 80s.
Lein is best known for his original and personal author portraits and shows on Rikstoloven a selection of his Vintage Prints which are only available in one copy.
Lein uses polaroids that produce negatives and when the polaroids and negatives are separated, parts of the emulsion risk being damaged. In these cases, it reinforces the images and gives them new dimensions.
