The people portrayed in Ulf Lundin’s series "From Darkness" have been enclosed by themselves in total darkness for half an hour before the artist pulled the trigger on his camera. This he did from an adjoining room without seeing the sitter. The portrayed had no notion when the flash would lighten up their faces.
– From Press Release –
With his very own quirky look at seemingly mundane situations around Stockholm, Ulf Lundin makes us see the remarkable in the simple. By quietly and methodically considering and waiting, Ulf Lundin has developed the form and expression possibilities of the documentary genre. He captures in both still and video the equally comical and absurd situations that arise between the city’s inhabitants.
From press release:
Eight international video artists will be presented during two months.
One week / one artist, followed by an artist talk.
The video's will be projected in public spaces, throughout the city Gjilan, Kosovo:
Amphitheater of Dardania park, Library of the City, Space In front of Hotel Kristal.

We are pleased to present Ulf Lundin’s seventh solo exhibition at the gallery: The Monument. The exhibition presents a photographic project based on the area around Högdalstopparna, south of Stockholm, where Ulf Lundin has spent much time in recent years. The photographs depict a specific place but are also loaded with an underlying narrative dealing with dreams and reality. Although beautiful, the pictures possess an intensity and darkness that relates to the society we live in. The project is also the subject of a new book that is published in conjunction with the exhibition.
Galleri Magnus Karlsson moves to London this autumn!

From press release:
From Press Release (in Swedish only):
Ulf Lundin är utbildad stillbildsfotograf och jobbar idag både med fotografi och video. I 5–9 har Lundin satt samman en mängd fotografier och videoklipp i ett kollage som utgör videoverket. Verket speglar det vardagliga arbetet på ett kontor där det egentliga porträtten av kontorsarbetarna inte är huvudsaken. Istället vill Lundin fråga åskådaren: “Hur lever vi våra liv?”
In the video 5-9 we’re following the everyday doings in a office building in the Stockholm area. The piece is shot secretly from the outside during dark hours. Lundin has gathered material during several weeks. That material is put together digitally so that the result is 27 minutes long unbroken dolly shot. The result is a condensed reality where time and space has been manipulated. Lundin is not really interested in the office workers that are portrayed in 5-9. They represent all of us and our gaze is turned towards ourselves. How do we choose to live our lives?
From Press Release (In Swedish only):
VEM ÄR ”DEN ANDRE”? Hur ska vi kunna gestalta relationen mellan ”vi” och ”dom”? Hur möter vi främlingen? Vem är främlingen? Vem är du och jag? Hur formas våra identiteter? Hur kan vi gestalta ”den Andre”?
Temporal Anxiety comprises a media installation of four works examining the passage, perception and fluidity of time through natural and man-made cycles; from literal stop-motion condensing reality to extended shots questioning the nature of linear temporality.
From Press Release (in Swedish only):
Sedan mitten av 1800-talet har fotografin varit ett redskap för att definiera och kontrollera subjekt, men även bekräfta och synliggöra sällan skådade miljöer och individer. Urvalet av verk från Hasselbladstiftelsens samling i Framing Bodies belyser detta. Utställningen tematiserar olika fotografiska inramningar av kroppen utifrån perspektiven: övervakning; normöverskridning; arbete och kolonialt förtryck.
A parallel program of the Manifesta 10.

They are hunters who themselves become prey. In 1960, Federico Fellini erected a questionable cinematic memorial to them in his famous film “La Dolce Vita.” He created the character of the “paparazzo,” the tabloid photographer whose name can be read as a combination of the words “pappatace” (sand fly) and “ragazzo” (boy). The paparazzo’s raison d'être: the covert following and stalking of more or less well-known personages with the aim of publishing exclusive photos of supposedly secret and personal situations.
