Skåne essence

Helene Aurell is a sculptor and lives and works in Järrestad in Österlen for a few years. Her work is based on her own experience of the world, expressed in her own design language. It can be a picture she sees, a statement from someone, a dream or just a longing that starts a work process for a new sculpture. Helene Aurell works with concrete, a material reminiscent of stone but with the difference that she can build and sculpt instead of cutting off material. She can also choose the type and color of the stone crusher as well as finishing for a more "stone-like" surface structure.

The works in the exhibition Skånska essence form a whole that tells something about the traces of time and the artist's wonder before what we cannot explain with words. Man has at all times created stories about his relationship with nature and God-being to orient himself in the world or to ask for help. Often it is animals that have the various characteristics of the world of God or represent them as scary and dangerous. The sculptures express Helene Aurell's experience of these beings, figures and animals. The exhibition is inaugurated 15/2 and runs until 18/4.


After many years of cooperation, this group was formed, which now presents a wide selection of pictures and a slide show in Rian at the Österlen Museum. The photo enthusiasts consist of: Per Björnby, Siw Jeppsson, Gunnel Jönsson, Per Kindstedt, Björn Löfgren, Kjell Persson, Kai Svensson and Rolf Unosson. Each member shows pictures that illustrate personal orientation and style in an exhibition with multiple orientations. The exhibition opens 15/2 and runs until 30/5.

The municipality's newly purchased art

Every year, the municipality of Simrishamn buys new art from locally anchored artists to the municipality's collection. The exhibition shows art purchased in 2019. The exhibition opens 15/2 and runs until 30/5.

Noticeable first - about clothes and people

The marks first show clothes from the 1700 century up to 1970 from the Society's collections at Österlens museum. The clothes really tell all the stories while it is about communication, community, exclusion, status and economy, fate, tradition and renewal. Therefore, the exhibition becomes a test chart of human behavior and a way of telling our local history. And thus also an exhibition not only for the already interested.

Harvesting rainwater

"Harvesting rainwater" is an installation in the museum's garden created together with Eva Mathiasson, Sophia Callmer and Susanna Widlundh. Here is shown how rainwater can be collected, stored and used to create sustainable gardens and a better environment for ourselves and future generations. In collaboration with the Public Administration Administration Gata & Park and with funds from Sparbanken Syd. During the year, more installations will be displayed in the museum garden.
