Projects Statement:

Li Liang
I have a strong impact on Chinese fine classical paintings and calligraphy since I was a little.  I used lines to create forms and place my feelings of nature. For me, the Chinese calligraphy gives the lines diverse visual possible and spiritual power. The line has stimulated me to discover the sequence and express the emotions of the reality.

Karin Gyllerfelt
My work, entitled Pose, concerns the experience of being body in relationship to the room, as well as the experience of being body in relation to others. Through the encounter between my pieces and the viewer/wearer I want to make the viewer/wearer aware of its own body, and its placement in the room. I’m interested in the tension and attraction that will occur. I’ve played with shapes that will indicate wearability and possibly evoke a desire to wear. The work consists of pieces made out of mainly textile second-hand material. I’m interested in the close relationship between the textile and the body. The clothes have been used and I, therefore, see them as somehow loaded material that carries different expressions and ability to evoke associations.

Rasmus Larson
The medal, a military grading symbol which is commonly used as a confirmation that marks accomplishments – You’ve done well. What happens when it’s forced to use its purpose but in contradiction tell about the opposite, and take the role to display lives that are forced to fade away in an elimination steeped in destructive and lost conditions. Morphed together with IUCN’s The Red List and thoughts around life form’s fates and circumstances.
The materials used are recycled Tin-soldiers, taken from a time when naïve brutal battles were executed on wall-to-wall carpets without knowledge of the real world’s equal brutality. It takes four soldiers to make one medal. Four if they have rifles and are marching. Acrylic paintings as portraits of lives. The text, to create context and cause. And the ribbon, made out of caution tape and protective tape – which according to the label on the package says: for all kind of caution and protection. They have become my pacifistic contemplations.


Soili Rautanen
I want to frame a person. And by doing that I want that the person has its own secrets and stories. The wearer becomes a storyteller through the frames and creates a strong relationship between the wearer and the jewelry. At the same time hundreds of times repeated frame parts formulate a wall around the head, protecting its wearer. The frame can either cover or relieve your life but it always tells a story with you.

Lena Johansson
I dip paper in porcelain, while thinking of certain piles of paper. I make a construction, as a protection for the fragile. With a line that does not cover but coexists, as the shadow.

Sanna Lindholm
My work is focusing on women-dominated professions, in particular nursing assistants and cleaning women.  I wanted to focus on women-dominated professions because of my interest in gender and class structures and the distribution of power.  This interest is a driving force for me personally as well as a method in my work.The exploration of everyday situations.  To see the small things and to pick up what has been dropped. To clean, wipe up and put things in order – this has been a big part of my process.  I’ve looked at everyday objects and materials.  Well-known items that are part of our routines, which contain emotions and arouse individual associations.Humor, everyday realism and ambiguity have been important issues in my work.

Stina Brännström
In my final project I wanted to rebuild my little girls’ room. A chance to explore origins and girls’ rooms as a shaping environment. I wanted to be able to physically enter this room.To be able to see, feel and experience.Limited by the room’s small surface, I gave myself the assignment to describe what it is like being a girl, using the room as a metaphor for the body (the girl).The color pink is central to my work; it tells what kind of room it is. Without the pink color, it could have been any room. Color is a code, a sign.I don’t regard the room as mine, I see it as ours. It is all girls’ accumulated experiences of the girls’ room. A collective experience of a space.

Sanna Brantestad
2013. The year my beloved mother passed away. The grief casts shadows over everything; nothing is in its place anymore. Another journey, an inner one, has begun.I seek support in my hands.This is a work about days of grief. Of memories. Imprints. A tribute to the small things that mean the most. To what remains when everything else disappears.

I look into the fragmental and the constantly changing in what we remember. I work with thoughts of souvenirs as materialized memories.
In metal, I search for a language that speaks of transformation. I cast objects to rework them,  seeking the boundary between the recognizable and the abstract. Memory helps the eye to whole broken forms. We want to remember. My work revolves around memories as souvenirs, how we carry with us our memories.
