NEWS 2020: Showing Video On Kulturens Hus Luleå Konsthall in May 2020! ...if the world stands by then.
Above is a still from the Time Traveler video that was showing along with video In the Studio, as part of my father's Timetraveller exhibition at Vetlanda museum in Sweden, 2016. And it is a good co-operation and great fun to be in on a corner of this and a few other of my father's exhibitions in the past years.
I am again showing video on an exhibition!
In May 2020 the In the Studio will again be on show. showing. This time as part of the Olle Schmidt exhibition Mis-matched Stories at Luleå konsthall. The exhibition opens already in May 2020.
Corona update #1 I am hopeful that this will be happening still, even though it seems less and less likely by the hour, (as with everything now this is because of the corona crisis happening at this very moment). So to conclude: it will happen when the society is up and running again. And no one knows when that will be.
About the co-operations - video works shown on Olle Schmidt's exhibitions
In these video works found material and that taped, filmed or composed material was replaced and arranged into new contexts.
In the Studio is a mildly humouros short introduction to Olle Schmidt and his artistic process through images from his studio taken whilst working on a weird looking installation (like a three-dimensional...) and seemingly accompanied by a choir of chickens and a bunch of words thrown out into the studio space.
VIDEO WLL COME
Timetraveller is instead based on super-8 holiday films that was found in a dumpster in the late 1980’s by Olle and revived for this short film. The images are accompanied by other imagery as well as an instrumental recording bearing the same title as the exhibition [and the video it self]. Nothing extreme. Not at all actually.
[Olle Schmidt works mainly in a postmodern painting tradition. Find more on Swedish artist Olle Schmidt on his Instagram or Homepage. I will produce a text on his art for this blog in the future, be so sure. There is at this point however not many mentions here on this blog but the one about his electric blues guitar solos that is feat. on some early recordings].
