18 januari – 20 februari 2019
Vernissage 18 januari kl 14.30 – 15.30
Bergagalleriet presenterar Rydh/Sörenson, en konstnärsduo som tidigare ställt ut i Berlin, Bryssel, Färöarna, New York, Los Angeles och Stockholm. Nu visar de för första gången i Sverige sin uppblåsbara ljusskulptur ”Mushroom Tree” tillsammans med handgjorda kollage. Rydh/Sörensons kollage och skulpturer är inspirerade av sagovärldar, folktro och dataspelsestetik; gärna absurda former och figurer som ser ut att vara skapade i ett socker-rus. Alla kollage är gjorda gemensamt med handmålade delar, akvarell på papper.
Verket ”Solnedgång över Västberga Parkering” med Konsthall 323, 11 november 2018.
Thank you everybody who joined us for Söndagskväll i November med Konsthall 323! ”Solnedgång över Västberga Parkering” is a site specific installation created for Konsthall 323. Konsthall 323 is a conceptual institution venue located in a car. The space is curated and directed by the artists Frida Krohn and Ylva Trapp. They invited me to create a painting installation for a one-night-only event in November, 2018. The show was open 4pm-6pm, when the sun sets in Stockholm, Sweden, a time of the year when it is both dark and grey. The to two fabrics are hand painted on silk.
This text( in Swedish) accompanied the exhibition invite:
Anna Sörenson arbetar med måleri i liten och stor skala och ofta i direkt respons till den omgivande miljön. Hennes projekt Neverending Book har inspirerat oss att orka fortsätta med vårt arbete i Konsthall 323. Vi är stolta att presentera ett helt nytt verk av Anna Sörenson, en platsspecifik installation som visas endast en kväll i november. Bekämpa novembers gråhet med ett besök i färg på parkeringen utanför Coop Västberga.
TIP, Theory Into Practice, is an architecture firm, based in Stockholm, that wants to create a better future. They are focused on complex social challenges and they build interdisciplinary constellations with common innovation skills. We started our collaboration around TIP’s ideas about the new Slakthus area in Stockholm. The concept-based collages I created for them are both digital and handmade.
I am glad to announce my upcoming exhibition with Konsthall 323. I will present my piece ”Solnedgång Över Västberga Parkering”, a painting installation. Mark your calendar for November 11th, from 4pm-6pm at Coop Västbergas parkinglot.
Mural at Mimosan Montessori, Lidingö, Stockholm, 2018
I am so proud to have completed my second mural this summer, at Mimosan Montessori. Mimosan is an excellent, pedagogical environment for our smallest citizens. In the ”Cloud Room”, with cloud shaped sound mufflers in the the ceiling and a rainbow colored carpet my layered shape found an perfect home.
This mural is panted on a warm grey, or purple grey wall, which also facilitated the white layer with confetti sprinkles. All layers are painted with acrylic wall paint with details drawn in posca pencil.
Rydh /Sörenson is proud to announce our Stockholm premiere for 2018 short film ”Tiny Mountains”.
Tiny Mountains is a mockumentary comedy short. A narrator explains the different time periods the world has gone through. We touch down at each geologic period to see how the world differs from the past. We learn how living creatures like plants, furniture and horses coexist in the ecosystem. Finally, we make a deeper study of the person, an unusual creature with particular wants, needs and habits.
Run time 07:55min, recorded in the Faroe Islands, Denmark and Cesis, Latvia.
Or just go to: Studio 44, Tjärhovsgatan 44, 16th of August, 4pm-21 pm or 19th of August, 4pm-9pm
Still from ”Tiny Mountains”
We are also proud to announce that Environmental Ephemerals- the Book is now available on Vermiko Books, a Japanese independent bookstore, available online. You can read ”Small 10 Questions” that founder Setsuko Hori did with me during our stay in Japan and also purchase my catalogue ”Suitcase Paintings”.
The wall is 2,33 m x 4,10 m, painted with acrylic wall paint, 2018.
My first mural painting in Mantaray Films’s Producers Office has been great summer project. I love working straight on the wall and create site specific works. Ever since I worked for Pat Steir, assisting her wall painting installations at Sue Scott gallery, and Anthony Sansotta, artist, director of the Sol LeWitt Estate and long-time assistant to LeWitt, I have wanted to create my own site specific paintings. Because it brings the painting into a milieu, it makes the work less of an object and more a part of the everyday environment, something more approachable and direct.
