At the Cultural Centre

The Opera Singer

Death, visualized

Loud´n Proud


There was a lot of different activities to see hear and try during Haninge Day on Saturday. Here are a few snaps from inside the Cultural Centre . On the top photo you can see local girl Johanna Martell, a young and talented opera singer preparing for her performance at the cafe. The pianist is Jacob Moscowic. More about Johanna on her web site. Or have a look at her blog.
Second photo shows a sculpture by Natalie Sutinen. It can be seen in the art room and Sutinen's exhibition opened on Saturday. The artwork has no name. It is made of wax, paper, books and feathers. Sutinen often works with wax dolls, and says that she wants to visualise death with her art. And I do think that really shows here.
On the third and last photo you can see the band Loud 'n' Proud playing some loud music in the theatre room. Surprisingly the audience were mostly pensioners, at least that was the case when I shot this. More photos from this fun day to come.

The Natalie Sutinen piece is excellent. You're right, it does visualise death well. I thought it was one of those pieces using a real (live) person at first, so realistic is it.

Visualize death? Sounds like she needs some new inspiration.

I love the top photo of the opera singer and piano accompanist! Did you get to hear her sing? Which opera? She looks to be single, Steffe Meister......

I love opera and your first portrait. Being not so far from the pensioners age group I'd feel myself at ease there with a loud band playing.
About visualizing death... B^2 has already said the polite thing.

I would have loved to be there for the opera singer too. The second shot......I'm not so sure.

"GOSH".... to the second photo!

The concert was probably very nice. And you have really lots of different things happening where you are living.... Interesting, and nice to see.

gosh that face looks so real!

I'm with you Eamon!

I only heard Johanna as she was warming up her voice. By the time she started singing I was back outside walking around Poseidon's square talking to people and shooting some more photos.

Nämen gud vilken läskig skulptur. Ansiktet ser helt verkligt ut. Fast döden är inte rosig.

Verkligt var ordet.
