SCREENING AND BOOK RELEASE AT UGLYCUTE





Welcome to a special screening of the film KOSTA 3:30 and book release of A DAY IN THE LIFE OF by Libraryman at Uglycute.

Uglycute screen the movie KOSTA 3:30 by Mikael Olsson and Andreas Roth. The film Kosta 3:30 is a meditative portrait of Bruno Mathsson's townhouse at the glassworks of Kosta. Same as Mathsson's private house in Södrakull and Frösakull had the terraced houses expired for some time when the two artists began their work. The film is not a documentary, it is more detaining to the buildings visual and formal qualities. The artist Carsten Nicolais soundtrack also reinforces the film's abstract and conceptual character.

Libraryman is releasing a new book within the series A day in the life of... For the sixth publication Mikael Olsson has been to Capri. The black and white pictures of Villa Lysis, a mansion built for the French poet and writer Jacques Adelswärd-Fersen has an airy and dreamy quality. Adelswärd-Count Fersen was forced to flee France in 1903 after being accused of adultery with the young boys and lived here with his lover Nino Cesarini until his drug-related suicide in 1923. The building itself was designed by architect Edouard Chimot in an Italianized version of Art Noveau. The entrance bears the Latin inscription Amori et dolori sacrum - A Holy Place for Love and Sorrow.
