Cirklar och ord

Welcome to the exhibition Cirklar and Ord at Gamla Smedjan in Gladsax. The exhibition is a collaboration between Anita Christoffersson and Martin Farran-Lee, graphic designer and lecturer at K3. 

The exhibition is about signs and their aesthetic potential. Anita Christoffersson’s circles can be seen as reflections of eternity – no beginning, no end. In Martin Farran-Lee’s graphic prints words turn into images – and images into words.

April 14–17, open 12–16
Inauguration Skärtorsdagen April 13th 14:00.

HYBRID MATTERs exhibition and symposium

Last week the artistic research project HYBRID MATTERs  was concluded in Helsinki with a symposium, at the Theatre Academy, and an exhibition at Forum Box.

HYBRID MATTERs is a two-year-long artistic research project, funded by the Nordic Culture Fund.  The project investigates hybrid ecologies, the convergence of our environment with technology and essentially the intentional and unintentional transformation of our planet through human activity.

As one of the partners in the project, Kristina Lindström, senior lecturer at K3, and Åsa Ståhl, senior lecturer at Linneus University, have used participatory and speculative methods to explore Plastic Imaginaries. Their work was exhibited at Forum Box and presented during the symposium in the panel In the Aftermath.
