Memory Hole

The Artists

I had a sneak preview at an upcoming art exhibition yesterday. This is Arvid Wretman and Jenny Palén. Their exhibition is called Memory Hole and it will open at the Haninge Cultural Centre on Friday. I was having coffee at the cafe and started talking to Åsa Mårtensson who is the Master of Arts at the centre. She told me about the exhibition and we walked into the showroom where Arvid and Jenny were busy working. I wasn't allowed to take any photos inside the showroom so I asked them if we could go outside for a quick portrait. Arvid and Jenny are students at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm. The Memory Hole exhibition will run from this Friday until the 22th of August. If you visit on Friday you will also see a performance by Arvid and hear a musical performance by David Giese aka Joxaren. Later in the summer there will be an open workshop for students between seventh grade and ninth grade.

It never ceases to amaze me how you get all these people to pose for you wherever you find them. That's great!

Is that where all my memories have gone...into the memory hole! I bet the youngsters won't have dropped too many memories down the memory hole. But this couple is very, very convincing.

I absolutely like the ice cream!

And it was a free ice cream. Åsa bought it for them. As I understand it the Memory Hole will feature pictures and illustrations of childhood from popular culture. Sounds intriguing.

Strange that they seem reluctant to look at the camera.

Scott said...

Did you bribe them with the ice cream to get them to pose for the photo? Seriously though, nice job on that. I just caught up on your last several posts and you inspire me to do more people photos.

They look depressed.

I picked this photo because they didn't look at the camera. Made it better I think.
