Until 16 September 2012 there is an exhibition called Making knowledge at Gustavsbergs konsthall, featuring Frida Hållander from Konstfack, Mårten Medbo from HDK School of Design and Crafts, Kjell Rylander and Caroline Slotte from Bergen Academy of Art and Design. The intention in the exhibition is to highlight and discuss crafts as an area of resarch. The four participating artists are all PhD candidates or equivalent in the area of crafts, and in their research projects they are all contributing to the current and rapid development of crafts. The exhibited works pose questions on materiality and doing, on tradition, class and power, ranging from everyday to existential issues. Bringing together their projects aims at creating a platform for a future discussion on artistic research, and a possiblity to investigate what and who contemporary practice-based research implies, makes and involves.

Lund university is organizing a workshop, All that was left, January 26-27 that moves between medical history and art history in order to explore all that was left after the daily work on Tornbladsinstitutet, an embryologic institution founded in Lund 1931. The purpose of the workshop is to develop a greater understanding of the collection, and enable further research on the material, which consists of a large collection where fetuses from many animals, including humans, can be compared with each other and over time.
Frida Hållander, artist and PhD candidate will together with artist Linda Shamma Östrand highlight some reflections on the collection. During the presentation – “Our inexorable quest for original shapes” – they will talk about Tornbladinstitiuets material on the basis of their own background and the artistic practice that we conduct. More information and schedule can be downloaded here. (photo Malin E Nilsson)
