It’s time for WestPride, the lgbt-festival in Göteborg (Gothenburg).
During this festival I will show my EGAH-origami-lamps. EGAH is an ADD_ON_ART to an existing lamp you can buy at Ikea. EGAH is short for the short story collection (in Swedish) En Grundläggande Anatomisk Harmoni that was published in 2011. It didn’t sell well, so it has now been transformed into art. If it sells better as art than as a book it is simply poetic justice. If it won’t reach out as literature, perhaps it will do that as art. The EGAH-lamp is available in the models EGAH Star Lamp, EGAH Koi Lamp and EGAH Lily Lamp.
The lamps will be shown at the Lilla Växthuset in the Trädgårdsföreningen (The Small Green House in the Garden Society Park) in central Göteborg. Opening of the show is set to 18:00-20:00 on friday the 24:th of May, thereafter open daily from 10:00-20:00, last day June 1:st.
In the green house I will also show giclee-prints that I’ve made in an attempt to mix popart with gay art, where I’ve taken naked pictures, images from interior decorating magazines, nature images, and other photos that I’ve taken my self. Of my self. A lonely naked man in a living room, in a restaurant, in an environment where the body doesn’t belong. A naked man in black-and-white looking for something on the other side a window, where everything’s in colour.
