Welcome to the Open House at Iaspis. This is one of Stockholm’s recurring open meeting-places for contemporary artists and their audience – a unique opportunity to gain an insight into a number of exciting Swedish and international artists’ work. During Friday the 13th and Saturday the 14th of February, we will present 17 Iaspis grant recipients. The artists will present their projects in the open studios and in a programme of lectures and video screenings.
The Open House will include: a lecture by Patrik Söderstam covering a fictitious fashion company and his time as an Iaspis grant recipient in Tokyo in 2008; a comment on the Swedish IKEA culture by Igor Antic; a lecture on consumption and desire by artist Alevtina Kakhidze; the sound installation Detroit Dream by Tris Vonna-Michell; an exhibition of Kristoffer Zetterstrand’s paintings which he has created by a computer animation process; a screening of experimental video works by the electronica artist Steina Vasulka, and much more.
