OUR RED SKY

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 26 July to 18 October 2020, MDD, Museum of Deinze and the Leie Region (Mudel) and Roger Raveel Museum, join forces to present the 7th edition of the Biennial of Painting.
Mendes Wood DM has been invited to collaborate with Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens for the 7th edition of the Biennial of Painting, by presenting an exhibition in its townhouse gallery in the Sablon. The Biennial’s theme is Binnenskamers, or Inner Spaces, which has been loosely interpreted to include interior spaces and studios, but also a psychological state of introspection and the intimate realm of the imagination. On the suggestion of the artist Maaike Schoorel (b. 1973 in Santpoort, The Netherlands.
It was with great regret that we heard of the loss of Lars Arrhenius (1966–2020) who passed away just a few weeks ago after an operation. He had been battling a stub- born autoimmune disorder for years. Lars leaves behind his wife and two children, who remain in our thoughts.
From the beginning of his artistic career, Lars Arrhenius was committed to exploring new things, in particular new media and digitalisation. Over the last 10 years his focus was on environmental protection, which became his central concern.
Dette er tre separate utstillinger med kunstnere som ikke har stilt ut sammen tidligere. Kunstnerne er satt sammen ut ifra noen felles møtepunkter både visuelt og konseptuelt. Undertittelen til utstillingen, - orkanen nærmer seg, er hentet fra en låt med samme tittel fra garagerock-gruppen Pascal fra Gotland. På tross av en mørk klangbunn er utstillingen en hyllest til kunsten, trangen til utforskning og en påminnelse om at vi kan.

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.
