Resväskan, 60 x 60 cm by Carina Linne
Do you remember this picture ? It was painted by one of our members, called Carina Linne who used to attend Pim’s acrylic classes. (Presently she lives in Malta – but we hope to see her back soon).
This picture – “the suitcase”- is the first in a series of 3 pictures. The others are titled “the dance band” and ”Lillhärdal” (which is a small town in Sweden). Together with the music - '”Där björkarna susa”" by the Jailbird Singers they form the installation “Nostalgia”. (you can hear the music by clicking the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsymKyHi-Io )
Carina was one of 2037, who submitted their work for a place in a very prestigious exhibition in Sweden. She is one of only 131 who was accepted! Her installation will be on display at Liljevalchs spring exhibition from January 28th until march 27th 2011 in Stockholm. The Liljevalch art venue belongs to the City of Stockholm and was opened back in 1916 as the first independent, public museum for contemporary art in Sweden. It is expected that her work will be viewed by some 50.000 visitors...
