It is a gift for Seongnam City and Cultural Foundation that is hosting the Art Book Fair. All invited artists have been asked to create one work. I have made mine from a small children’s harmonium book, that I have turned it into a mixture between a pop-up-book and sort of list of (some of) the multiplicity and variety I expect to find in Seongnam: City of art, architecture, authors, autos, birds, babies, bacillus, bags, balance, balls, bakeries, ballrooms, banks, barbershops, bikes. etc, etc. I’m quite satisfied with the result – and increasingly excited to see the works of my fellow artists. In one month I’m going!
Yesterday was a busy day. After finishing my book I went to Silkeborg to the opening of the Easter-exhibition in Kulturspinderiet. I only knew one of the other artists in advance, but it was nice to see her really good looking, bright and colourful after very long time where we haven’t met.
Okay, maybe the standard of the exhibition was a bit uneven, but that’s what happens sometimes, especially when very different artists are selected for a gathering like this. I can’t complain though, I was very satisfied with “my wall” – and the response I got! There was a lot of visitors, wine, music and a nice atmosphere.
Today is a cleaning-and-preparing-day. Guess who’s coming home from London tomorrow…
