Two exhibitions in Malmö and London: After a week in Berlin it’s time to head off again, this time with train to Copenhagen and and Malmö, with bags full of framed images that I hope we can carry without breaking our backs.

In Malmö I am participating in a group show, there is a Photography festival going on there over the weekend, click here for full program, it looks like it could be good! My work is on display with “Skanes Konstförening”, here.

Im looking forward to going back to Sweden, even if it’s only for a few days and I can’t wait to eat a Semla! For those of you who do not know what that is, here is an image from this page were someone has put together a list of were to buy the best one’s in Sweden. It is basically a bun with creme and almond, but it’s great! So between hanging the exhibition and meeting friends I will be in the bakery and eat as many of those as I can and then when I have stuffed myself full I will fly to London, that is if the plane can carry such a heavy Semla as that what I have then become.

In London is the exhibition opening of mine and David O’Kanes images for “The way of the cross”, on the 8th of March at 7.30, here, and there is also a book launch for a publication showing the different artist’s responses to the stations over the last five years. I never thought I would make images for a church but I think the end result is interesting and Im looking forward to the opening night, also because we got Carol Anne McGowan to do a concert for the night and that will probably be incredibly beautiful. So yeah, you should come along! That’s what I will be up to for the next week and a half, travels and exhibitions. Should be good!
In Berlin we went to see a nice little show with 75 artist books from Sol LeWitt, it was at the Art Laboratory in Wedding, a small space were one can also ask to be shown the books out of the display cases, so that was cool! Well worth a visit, it’s open for two more weeks.
Now I have to arrange some stuff, print out tickets and write down information. I finally managed to register in Berlin, last week I met with a woman who clearly hated her job and people who can’t understand bureaucracy, like me, she was incredibly unfriendly but today a nice young man who was into photography helped me so it was easy peasy and now I officially live in Berlin. Well done me. I don’t know why I am so dumbstruck as soon as it comes to paperwork of this kind, maybe because I never payed attention in the classes dealing with these kind of things in school, but now when I have to understand it in German too..I just feel like I want to go home to Sweden, nevermind, I shall be brave.
So, hopefully see you soon, either in Malmö or in London!

Things I Saw Today in Hua Hin.

It is 1.23 am in Abu Dhabi and I am sitting in a lounge trying to pass the ten hours we have to wait here before flying on to Thailand. I am increasingly grouchy with lack of comfortable sleep and regressing to a teenager because I am with my parents and everyone keeps thinking I am one. Which should be a compliment to a newly turned 27 year old but I have decided that it is just fucking annoying and patronising.
The airport here is odd, partly because it is being done up so hardly anything is open and because terminal one looks a bit like a set from a 70s sci-fi movie, it is quite amazing. The main reason though is that there seems to be no apparent structure or obvious route you need to take to get anywhere, everything is just mixed up together; duty free here, security there but also over there and then checking in and gates randomly scattered willy-nilly. We arrived in the dark, which hasn’t helped to orient myself, but from what I can gather from walking around and peering out of the dark windows is that the airport appears to be some sort of Star Wars set transplanted in the desert, big domes with tiny windows and passages coming off connecting you to other domes. Although that sounds fun, I can’t help feeling like we are stuck in a time hole. At the moment time, morning and night mean nothing to my body, I am sure this is how it always is when you travel far, I can’t remember feeling so disorientated though.
So for now I am going to ignore time. I hope this makes sense….I am very tired.

I am convinced that this tree and wall are very much influenced by one another.

I thought maybe it was about time to write something, but Im not really doing anything worth telling about. I am swimming with the fishes, or I suppose there are many fishes in the little lakes where I go swimming. I just returned from Öland, the long thin island you see on the map if you look at Sweden and now I am back in the small town where I grew up. I have a pile of books next to my bed which I do really want to read. I also have a lot of time consuming, stomach ache giving, boring and mind numbing paperwork to go through which I am trying to ignore but it’s proving extremely hard. I think I have one more week left here to sort out all those things I should have done last week. Nevermind! Somehow it will all magically be done. And that’s about it, I keep reading books and ignoring the paperwork. If only the books where interesting and stimulating and making my brain tick I suppose it would be worthwhile but they don’t really get through and thoughts about grey paperwork keep blocking the way. I have a brave dog to keep me company and a lot of tea, somehow summer is turning into autumn and I want to have just a little bit more of summer. I want to travel more before autumn comes, see some more things and make more images, more of the good things, less of the paperwork. So, this useless piece of text here is only to tell you that I am still alive but Im taking a small break to do some paperwork and think about the next big thing to come eventually. Bye for a little while from holiday land.

Emily-Ann Murray (‘Intimate Apparel’) has just graduated from De Montfort University up in Leicester. We just shot her final collection last week and it was pretty damn beautiful. I couldn’t wait any longer so here’s a sneaky peek.

Back from Vienna, leaving for Sweden: hej there,

yes, I do try to travel most of the time, but it’s so cheap, only buses and trains and staying over with friends, and so much fun. We have been back for a few days now and later today I will go to Sweden for another holiday, this one spent in the forest and with a bunch of books on a small little island in a small little lake.
Vienna was a lot of fun. Not so much fun was trying to study German on the ten hour train ride without air condition, melting away and simultaneously trying to answer stupid questions about facts and graphics and pretending to talk to someone in order to practice speech. Anyhow, when I came back here and finally did the test I was happy that I had practiced, although Im not sure how much it helped.

We did make it to the Narrenturm, it was a close call, the museum is well worth a visit but has very strange opening hours, something like three hours on certain days and we ran like idiots to make it there in time, getting lost and confused on the way and nearly missing the last guided tour. This kind man had mercy on us and took us around the museum in a high speed tempo, or he tried but it still did not go very quick, luckily. It is a very interesting place, a round tower build to house Vienna’s mentally ill, now only standing as a museum containing more then 5000 specimens of strange stuff in jars and models showing a broad range of diseases and abnormalities, such as a janus head, a skellet with two heads and a lot of strange diseases that back in the days for the lack of medicines were allowed to bloom out fully. And everything in very small rooms and corridors full with bottles and jars in the old vitrines and no flashy designs or anything which just makes the place beautiful in it’s bizarrness. so, go there! And I hope you get this guide we had, speaking in a quiet voice and gesticulating like a bird, very interesting and good.
Then we had a day of wandering around Wien, we also quickly looked in to the Sigmund Freud museum but they were just taking down a show and anyhow, the Narrenturm was enough for one day. Next day we got up early again and had to run, again, and sweating like idiots in our best clothes for the wedding. We managed to miss the train although we really tried. Still made it in time for the wedding, best wedding I have ever been to! Although I suppose that doesn’t say so much because I’ve only been to one other so nevermind, but it was great, and Manuel and Sabine the most sweet ever.

Hanging out on a castle terrace in the afternoon, drinking champagne and eating wedding cake, looking at everyone looking so great in their summer dresses and suits. It was a lot of fun, meeting people from the golden shimmering Glasgow days and sitting around talking, laughing, drinking good wine, eating excellent food and listening to a band play in the garden, ah, what a great few days. I think Manuel and Sabine are on honey moon but I need to get my act together and think of someway to say thank you, I enjoyed it a lot. Especially the crazy dancing in the gin and tonic disco, it was very fine. Waking up in a pile of sweat was not so much fun but I suppose that had nothing to do with the wedding and rather something to do with 38 degrees and more in the room, madness. But what a wedding..brilliant.
On the Sunday we traveled back to Vienna, said bye to everyone after some strange stories from Roddy containing a bird without money, a goat on a ladder and other confusing things he meet in Spain. 

Monday was the last day in Wien and we went to the National History Museum, we thought it would only take us a few hours and that we would still manage to do more things but we got stuck in there for something like five hours and came outside with no energy left what so ever. But it is also a beautiful place, all the old vitrines and the whole museum display is so carefully made and preserved, really impressing. Im not really into stones but I must say even the stone section got me, the display is so well made and it just looks so great that I even felt intrigued by some old stone.. actually a meteorite so I suppose one can maybe understand that. Three rooms full of birds, a lot of frogs in strange poses, snakes and I don’t know all, a dodo skeleton and a Tasmanian woolf in a black display case. So basically the journey to Austria can be summed up like this: a very beautiful wedding and two museums with strange things in jars. And then I came back to Leipzig and did a five hour long German test that I hope went well because otherwise my great master plan will not work out. Now I will pack my bag again and leave in one hour for Berlin and a 14 hour long bus ride to Sweden. Not very much will happen there, I expect to read, ride a bike and swim. happy days may they last.

Adventures on trains: On my travels, what started out as a little break, has now become work but in a different place.
