Suitcase Paintings, 2012

Suitcase Paintings

Suitcase Paintings, exhibit at WIP konsthall , February 2013

In May 2012 I proposed my project ”Suitcase Paintings”, where painting, context and the function of art was questioned by moving the painted object outside the gallery space. 10 paintings went traveling this summer, all to different locations and with different people.

With the collaborative project Suitcase Painting the outcome became an artist book, with graphic design by Christian Lindquist and an exhibition at WIP Konsthall 2013. Every one who collaborated is acknowledged in the book with their names, their destinations and their pictures. It felt important that the catalog was distributed for free, because it meant that it became something everybody could take home. My aim was to bring art to a space where everybody could access it, to be something my friends and I could share and experience together. The catalog is now available at the Japanese on-line bookstore Vermikko Books.

    Very much like your project! Funny thing; I published a book about my artwork, it is called The Suitcase Paintings 🙂
    Back in 2011 I stayed at a friends atelier in Malmo where I made my suitcase paintings.
    Anyhow it’s nice to hear about your suitcase paintings!
    All the best
