The Curators

Konsthall 323

The Curators

The experimental art project at the cultural centre in Handen closed on Saturday.The final installation was the opening of a new mobile art centre, named Konsthall 323. The artists and curators are Frida Krohn and Ylva Trapp. Their showroom is a Mazda 323 from 1983. After the official opening ceremony, where the artists cut the blue tape, there was refreshments and a lot of photography. And then the first four visitors (plus a baby),entered the mobile art centre for the five minute experience. I was in the second group and sat in the back-seat where I listened to a taped conversation between the two artists, as they made their way to the cultural centre discussing the road ahead and commenting on what they saw during those five minutes. It was a different art experience, filled with humour. In the next few months the mobile showroom will travel across the country, but no one knows where it will turn up next. But to keep track on what might happen in the future you check out the projects website.

You wrote a nice sympathetic post about these young... artists.
Better check their shoelaces the next time they are posing, or this is pert of the look?

Some people are just driven to create art. These artists have taken an interesting direction.

This is just fascinating. Never heard of such a thing but I'm glad it's happening! And kudos to the two curators who are making it happen!

Still a few weeks away for that Leif.

It was a bit unusual, and if it is something I like it's the unusual and unexpected.

Steffe! I'm so bad. I don't explore enough of the CDP blogs, especially those that stop by and comment on mine. I can't believe I've never checked yours out! Really really digging your photography, especially your "The XXX" portraits. Keep it up!
