Galleri Magnus Karlsson c/o Hotel le Manoir, Banyuls sur Mer, France

Galleri Magnus Karlsson has partnered with Hotel le Manoir in Banyuls-sur-Mer, France. We will make on-site exhibitions with gallery artists and also work towards an exchange between the artists, guests of the hotel and the local cultural scene. The first exhibition presents more than 30 works by 16 of the gallery’s artists.The works are not selected on the basis of a special theme, but there are a number connections to the geographical location, the building and the local nature and culture.

Maria Nordin & Lars Arrhenius, Imago Mundi, Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice, Italy

About the Swedish collection Archive of Visions and Actions included in the exhibition: What happens if you ask more than two hundred artists to take on the same miniature scale – a ten by twelve centimeter linen canvas on a wooden frame – as their common starting point? What will the artists do with this common condition, having to change scale from much larger works – or from video, performance or conceptual works – to a small canvas? The variation among the Swedish participants is large in terms of age, geography, material, media, themes, and methods.

Konvention och attityd. Ett urval av Kjell Strandqvists elever 1986–1996

En självklart viktig del av Konstakademiens historia är utbildningen. Banden mellan ledamöter, professorer, lärare och elever är starka och många, även om ansvaret för Kungl. Konsthögskolans verksamhet formellt övergick till staten år 1978. Det vill Konstakademien manifestera genom att inleda en serie utställningar utifrån elevkretsarna kring ”Mejans ” professorer. Traderingen mellan generationer, det personliga mötet och goda samtalet är en unik form av kunskapsförmedling och erfarenhetsutbyte.

Lars Arrhenius, Eye for an Eye, Specta, Copenhagen, Denmark

Lars Arrhenius (b.1966) deals with the drama of everyday life. In his works he has often put on a birds eye to human behaviour where he tells stories on hidden contexts where everything in the end seems to be connected. In August/September Specta shows 66 prints by Lars Arrhenius, all illustrations from British newspapers from the end of the 19 th century. Here, carefully drawn illustrations were used to vividly emphasize events in order to reach more “readers”. All together the 66 prints form the more than 17 meters long suite “Eye for an Eye” from 2002.

Svarta Bubblor/Black Bubbles

SVARTA BUBBLOR is Lars Arrhenius seventh solo exhibition in the gallery. It is also Lars Arrhenius’s return to hand-made drawings and comics, which was his way into the arts. After ten years of partially computer generated wall works and animations these drawings began to develop. The works, however, is text-based and in a way an ‘anti-comics’. In about 50 ink drawings, we follow what people are brooding over and babbling about in the darkness of the night. The story is full of recognition, and despite its simple form it accommodates many of life’s great questions.
