Camilla Hammarstrom about an art form that is alive – Aftonbladet

The first time I saw a work of Jeff Koons was in the late eighties. It was his readymades of vacuum cleaner that put me in gentle ecstasy. That it was possible to repeat the Duchamp prank to make everyday objects into art with modern subject felt at this time of refreshing. Interest in the readymades were strong during the eighties and early nineties. At Koons went over there that he reproduced found objects in other materials, and eventually in a different scale. Something he has in common with the two artists he exhibited together with the Museum of Modern Art: Katharina Fritsch and Charles Ray.

The idea of ​​the exhibition Sculpture for Sculpture is compiling artists who broke new ground when it comes to re-introduce it in figurative sculpture, with the highlight the sculptural object’s opportunities today. There are thirteen works by the three artists that appear. Entering the hall feels a bit like visiting a museum of a bygone culture. As if you were in the future and saw the typical expressions of a certain age. Maybe it has to do with how the works presented – quite sober, with just the right distance from each other.

But the more I think I think it’s because they all three are connected to the history of sculpture. Katharina Fritsch life-size elephant standing on a pedestal that raises it to the monument. Charles and Ray’s naturalistic human figures reminiscent of ancient Greek and Roman sculpture. Jeff Koons’ porcelain portrait of Michael Jackson with his monkey Bubbles makes me think of Etruscan tomb chests with characters on the cover.

And that was precisely what happened in the eighties, that the window was opened to history after modernism programmatic forward looking. It was again possible to be figurative, and cite earlier times style grip. And kitsch entered the stage as an adequate means of expression. Katharina Fritsch Madonna is a typical example, an enlargement of a banal figurine painted in bright yellow. More interesting still is perhaps her Lady with dog in 2004 based on a figure made entirely of shells. With her wasp waist and swelling skirts reproducing an image of women from the past that has been completely transformed into characters.

Master of kitsch area is still Jeff Koons. Michael Jackson portrait is unbeatable with its baroque revelry of gold and flowers. It’s not just the imagery that captured the artist, but also the production process around making porcelain figurines, here in almost monumental formats. Koons object is extremely costly to produce. You could say that he works in symbiosis with wealthy art collectors to pursue their art.

While Charles Ray spend great care on his sculptures, which take many times a year to produce . As the tractor, made of hundreds avmodellerade parts cast in aluminum and then merged into one at once fragile and heavy whole. I can not say that it evokes the same aha feeling that Koons works, but in context it still fills its place as a strange, figurative artifact.

at Kulturhuset in progress simultaneously enmönstring of Swedish sculpture. It has its origin in the eighties and nineties by inviting artists who emerged during this time. Is this the same movement towards figurative distinct objects? No, apart from the Klara Kristalovas

glazed pottery figures, so it’s the other way around if moving away from the sculpture as a massive single body. As in the Marianne Lindberg De Geer and Ulf Rollof installations. Or Meta-Isæus Berlin two works: Bedtime and The Awakening from 2014, the first is a bed suspended from thick ropes, the other a bathroom flooded with water – a sort of fountain. Besides being an engineering achievement, it is a wonderful portrayal of total loss of control. Along with the bed that sways like a craft in the dream night created a poetic story about the flows and movements that take place between the conscious and unconscious. If heaviness and lightness, fear and trust.

Installation art shows at other possibilities for sculpture than the figurative highlighted at Moderna Museet. But no matter which way the artist chooses, it is anyway clear that the sculpture as an art form is far from dead.

Today was given the book “Party leader who stepped into the cold” out of the S-profile Daniel Suhonen. But this weekend has excerpts from the published in various media and generated debate.

In the book singled including party secretary Carin Jämtin (S) out to be the one that was behind an internal coup to depose the former party leader Håkan Juholt.

denies the allegations

Suhonen tells in the book how Juholt in October 2011 were sent to a training center, officially to prepare for the next party leader debate. In the hidden gathered Social Democratic executive committee at the party office on Sveavägen 68 in Stockholm. On site attended Jämtin, Mikael Damberg, Sven-Erik Österberg, Helene Fritzon, meeting leader Wanja Lundby-Wedin and Elvy Söderström over the phone.

According to the book was the purpose to commit Juholt. Then Fritzon opposed the plans was the plan in place to put pressure on the party leader to instead make the decision yourself.

– It was in effect a coup attempt on Carin Jämtins initiative, three months before he finally fell, said Suhonen this weekend.

Only now she says the information in the book.

– It would never occur to me to Kuppa or behave that way. My job was to support the party in different ways, says Jämtin Aftonbladet.

Jämtin instead describes a wounded party.

“We did our best”

The aim was always to support Juholt, says party secretary. Not to dismiss him.

– We did our best. I did my best. Offices’ staff, all great people did their best to support the party chairman. One can only do their best.

She is also committed to Juholt was the one who made the decision to resign. No one else took it.

– Absolutely, and he stands by it and announced it on a Saturday afternoon.

– He and my mom Dominique sits babysit Orson as he speaks Swedish with them, they have learned some basic words of him, says Marie Modiano.

She and her Malmo-born husband and fellow artist Peter von Poehl is at home in St Germain in central Paris and trying to collect his thoughts when DN reaches them. A more than bewildering experience for the whole family.

– We are all still in shock. The Nobel Prize is the ultimate dream for all authors, also for my father. It’s the best price of all. My father has written and worked hard for forty years, and so now this … he is very happy. Orson is also half Swedish makes this event even bigger for my father, he dedicated the to and with his latest book to his grandson.

After Thursday’s press conference with Patrick Modiano , testified a timid man who carefully avoids mobile phones and computers, the whole family went in the company of some of his French book publishers at the local for a “very private dinner.” Completely at peace they were still not be. President François Hollande immediately sent his congratulations and the French press wrote while in nätupplagorna of a “reawakening of hopefulness” in the whole of the French Republic.

Peter von Poehl which sits next to the speakerphone, bursting of yet unanswered voicemails, adds:

– Patrick has been recognized in this way by just my country makes me enormously proud.

Nobel Prize in literature has distributed to far more than, say, French authors American. Do you have a specific cultural ties between our countries?

– Countless Swedish artists and painters’ve flocked to France by history, artistic, there are strong ties and a common respect for the artists. I grew up with books by authors such as August Strindberg and Hjalmar Söderberg and films of Ingmar Bergman in my childhood home. And today, for example, Swedish Institute in Paris this very active and their events always attract a lot of people, it is very popular among the French, responds Marie Modiano.

Peter von Poehl describes how






Stuck in a melancholic loop – Swedish Dagbladet

“Time and again writes Patrick Modiano same story,” stated Ulf Olsson in Expressen already 1993 To more than twenty years afterwards, when the Frenchman has now been awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, is the location of good and hurts the same.

As faithful Modianoläsare I have year after year, book after book, turned off his unwavering consistency. You know exactly what you get when you open one of his novels. Through the years, Modiano that nobody else has been his style devotee: a new Modiano is most likely another disassembled noir detective story, packed in deckarintrigens musts but swelled into melancholy and loneliness. It is very night streets, streetlights and half-empty Parisian cafes. In retrospect, it can be difficult to distinguish the different novels from each other. The atmosphere can really be summarized with a single image: Edward Hopper’s “Nighthawks” 1942.

“nights ‘grass’, which came out in Swedish last year, is how representative of the larger Paris romantic part of his authorship which by now consists of about thirty novels. A low-key and melancholy male jagberättare roam the city streets and remember something that happened a long time ago. In ‘nights’ grass’ is about the love affair with Dannie and attempts to come to grips with some shady types who flourished in the circle around her. Maybe it was the usual petty criminals. Or so they had connections to some kind of spy activity. But is it really so important?

Jean in ‘nights’ grass’ and the other of Modianos amateur sleuths resembles some sitting and staring at a picture and seeking pay attention to things they did not previously added notice. They become obsessed detective mystery, do research, calling number where no one answers, compare different addresses but rarely anywhere. As the most successful to detect any minor detail, filling in any single piece of the puzzle. “It’s funny how some details in our lives who have been invisible emerges twenty years later,” writes Jean in another place, “that when looking at an old family photo with a magnifying glass and sees a face or objects that had not had noticed … “. Further than this blurry face family photo will not.

It is rare occurrence that is the subject matter of Modianos artwork, rather the time since the, the nagging feeling that loss a few strong memories can evoke. For the narrator, it is ultimately not so important who was who and what was happening, as long as it can serve as material for romanticizing.

The other characters remain mappings in jagberättarens interior. The gaze penetrates straight through them and headed osvikligen back to herself in a melancholy loop. What emerges as important and real, that basically the only interesting, it’s man himself . Through all atmospheric melancholy, friendly and low-key melancholy and lovely night streets emerges a modernist solipsism, contemporary post-postmodern self-fixation: my personal story told in their own words.

It is itself of its time, shows Modiano. Man is his own story, his own fashion. The time that goes makes a smaller and smaller, it escapes between the fingers of one. The old archaeologist turned during his studies himself to a skeleton. After all, the presence of the other that makes an interesting, which makes the events taking place, which makes the passage of time palpable, while the absence only keeps for a fourth novel, halfway at best, if the author is skilled.

Modiano is superbly talented, and probably deserves the wide recognition as a Nobel Prize means. It’s a price that goes to the fine print, to the detail and mood, rather than the tired and sweeping stories. But sooner or later be reached, even as his faithful readers, yet a tipping point, about the forward center of each book, and begins to slowly lose interest.

About Modianos novels were novels they had been teeming. As novels, they are however far too one-sided and predictable. Modiano, like his narrator, hook up on a single image, a single sentiment which he mastered in full but never seem to leave. Remember that it was the only one left behind, after all these years, he repeats, over and over again. It’s a beautiful, evocative picture – though not particularly exciting. Future bittersweet time, we already know. The narcissistic life may be beautiful in the moment, but after the fact rather dull.
