Ulf Lundin, The BF Artist Film Festival VII, SET, London, UK

The BF Artist Film Festival VII programme has been selected from over 500 applicants and curated to showcase current technical approaches and thematic concerns explored by moving image artists. Domesticity and banality, voyeurism and sexuality, navigating the Internet and our relationships within the urban environment, are all themes that have occurred naturally through the selection process.


Mamma Andersson, The Phillips Collection, Washington DC, USA

Nordic Impressions is a major survey of Nordic art spanning nearly 200 years and presenting 53 artists from Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Norway, and Sweden, as well as the self-governing islands of Åland, Faroe, and Greenland. The exhibition celebrates the incredible artistic diversity of Nordic art, from idealized paintings of the distinctive Nordic light and untouched landscape to melancholic portraits in quiet interiors and mesmerizing video works that explore the human condition.

Maria Nordin, Nordiska Akvarellmuseet, Skärhamn, Sweden

In autumn 2018, the Nordic Watercolour Museum presents a comprehensive solo exhibition by Maria Nordin. The core of the exhibition will be the artist’s latest large-format watercolours and animated short films. These pieces are being shown for the first time. The presentation also includes a rich selection of older paintings and animations, which are both on loan and taken from the Nordic Watercolour Museum’s own collection.

Why Can’t There Be a Mountain on the Horizon, Niklas Eneblom, Galleri Magnus Karlsson, Stockholm, Sweden

We are pleased to present Niklas Eneblom’s eighth solo exhibition in the gallery. Why Can’t There Be a Mountain on the Horizon presents a new series of paintings made on drafting film. The works of the exhibition have an evocative and dreamy nature. As the title suggests, it alludes to a longing for something else. Eneblom looks back at previously visited places, and events from the past. In the process he rediscovered the drafting film as surface to apply paint upon:

Mamma Andersson, Foxy Production, New York, USA

Figure in a Landscape is a painting by Francis Bacon that interprets a photograph of his lover, Eric Hall, dozing on a seat in Hyde Park, London. The artist depicts a disfigured, abstracted, partly over-painted man, lying across a park bench. With a blue sky and flowers drained of color in a murky, somber landscape, it seems, forebodingly, to be at once both day and night. Painted during World War 2, the work’s banal title belies the currents of violence churning within the frame.

Helene Billgren, Ahlgrenshallen, Östersund, Sweden

From Press Release (in Swedish only):

ÖKK har det stora nöjet att få arrangera årets sista utställning tillsammans med BU. Bakom BU döljer sig två av Sveriges mera namnkunniga och etablerade konstnärer, Helene Billgren och Stefan Uhlinder. Vi törs utlova en utställning med många spännande uttryck! Helene och Stefan studerade båda på Valand under 1980-talet. Båda har nu Stockholm som bas för sitt konstnärskap. De har båda ställt ut vid några tillfällen tidigare i Östersund, men får nu möjligheten att visa upp sig en något större kontext, nämligen formatet konsthall.
