You can now listen to a podcast (Swedish only) that Linda Wallenberg Konst made with me recently, about the project
that I'm working on for the Ur aska exhibition which will take place at Västerås konstmuseum in the fall of 2018.

"Swedisms is a textile project dealing with Swedish cultural identity. Through iconic images such as
the red cottage, IKEA and a piece of falukorv, the works carve out Swedisms as they are often exported
to the rest of the world. Exaggerated, comical stereotypes, bordering on the vulgar, critique the dangers
of the single story, the repeated image, and the lumping together of something into a oneness that denies
complexity and variation."

I'm back in Sweden and I have a new Swedish phone number: +46762109553
I'm excited to announce that I have three upcoming exhibitions in Sweden in 2018:
Galleri Gotland: Swedisms (solo-exhibition), Visby, 31 March - 22 April.
The Contemporary Garage, which is run by the OpenART biennale:
A Hollow Ever After - Long live the new flesh (solo-exhibition), Örebro, June - September.
Västerås konstmuseum (group-exhibition), curated by Linda Wallenberg, 15 September - 11 November.
I'll be participating in a group exhibition at BlackCat Gallery in Melbourne, Australia.
The dates are: 17-28 January 2018. Opening reception: Friday 19 January, 6-8 PM.
Solo-exhibition: Oz-cillations at Brunswick Street Gallery in Melbourne, Australia, 17-29 November 2017.
"Oz-cillations is a textile project dealing with Australian cultural identity. Through iconic images such as
the boxing kangaroo, a jar of Vegemite and Crocodile Dundee, the works carve out Australianisms
as they are often exported to the rest of the world. Exaggerated, comical stereotypes, bordering on the vulgar,
critique the dangers of the single story, the repeated image, and the lumping together of something into
a oneness that denies complexity and variation."
