in second place

Sketches for a commission in Lindesberg, small mid Swedish city, and the new ER entrance at the hospital. It was a competition between three artists. Maria Ängqvist Klyvare's idea was chosen by the committee, and it will be realised some time next year.

I was in second place, with mixed feelings. Disappointment over the missed chance to actually transform the idea into reality, with all the challenges that comes along in the process; artistically, technically, the relation to the architecture and so on.

But also relief as I need to put so much energy into my new part time job as producer/curator at the culture center in one of the Göteborg suburbs, Blå Stället.
