MIKAEL OLSSON
FORTHCOMING BOOK



In on | auf the Swedish artist Mikael Olsson undertakes a photographic interpretation of the Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron’s and the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei’s temporary pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery in London.

By investigating the traces of their creative processes in their archives, and exploring the relation between their pavilion and its shifting contexts, Olsson creates images that follow and go beyond the object – visual narratives uncovering issues of memory, identity and perception.

The book includes an essay by author Péter Nádas entitled ’Loaned Landscapes, Borrowed Objects. The Real Space of the Image and the Representation of Space in Mikael Olsson’s Photography.’ ; "The images of Mikael Olsson are held by the tension between visual faculties and visual conventions, the reality of perception and the reality of vision, of the concrete and the abstract."

RöHSSKA MUSEET GöTEBORG



This exhibition presents a personal view on the home as a work of art and on collecting as a way of life. Joe Hedlund, a distinguished painter, will reconstruct parts of his home and studio inside one of the museum galleries. The show will feature a rich selection of objects from the artist’s private collection of Asian ceramics, archaeological findings and folk art from all over the world. In his home, the objects fill the floors and walls in a way that is oppositional to the ideal of the modern and functional home.
Mikael Olsson´s photograph from 2007, originally for Paletten Art Magazine, of his studio and home are represented in the exhibition. 11 Jun – 25 Sep 2016.
