LISTEN

At the moment I am listening a lot to Danish Gasolin since Kim Larsen just passed - This is my life. But I am a big lover of classical music so Edvard Greig: Peer Gynt Suite No. 1 must be my favorite.

READ

lewis

A book I have ready maybe 30 times in my childhood and a few times as an adult is The Magicians Nephew by C.S. Lewis. As a child I always dreamt of being an adventurer, to travel to new places but also to be able to save people. And what could be better than to do this with magic rings and on a winged horse?

SEE

Screen Shot 2018-10-15 at 9.08.44 AM.png

Matthew Barney’s The Cremaster Cycle, is the art work that has touched me the most.

WATCH

Orlando directed by Sally Potter. I love the character Orlando being so strong and androgynous and able to jump between the different sexes. It is a very well made film.

The Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm.

The Moderna Exhibition, With the Future Behind Us opens on the 20th October.

I think this exhibition will be very interesting. A group of Swedish artists offer both a sober and an intimate reflection on Swedish society today.

OBJECT

As a newly wed, it must be my wedding ring, handmade by my stepson Olle.

VISIT

  New York from the Shelton , Alfred Stieglitz

New York from the Shelton, Alfred Stieglitz

New York of course!

SURPRISING THING

I think for me it is when all of a sudden in the creative process everything seems to fall into place. it give me such satisfaction but it doesn’t always happen. So when it does, it is a surprise.
