Intro
Today art is often consumed through digital media, but what happens when reality is shown behind a filter and what happens if the imagination gets free play?
 

Artist list

Karin Roy Andersson, Sanna Svedestedt
Sanna Svedestedt and Karin Roy Andersson from #diagonalartprojects explore the image of the artist.
 
– I don’t feel like an artist.
– So what do you feel like?
– I feel like a draught ox.

Frazzled thoughts stained with red wine in the middle of a creative chaos of paint and brushes. Isn’t it odd that old prejudice of past time artists are still prevailing? At the same time the image of the artist is in constant change. Through today’s social media the windows are wide open to the studios and artistic processes. Now a fresh cup of coffee and an efficient laptop is added to the decadent aura. But does the image describe reality? Does the artist play the game to maintain the romantic image and to create a market? Are they living in a romanticized fantasy or do they follow the social standards like most of us?
Today art is often consumed through digital media, but what happens when reality is shown behind a filter and what happens if the imagination gets free play? Is it the artist’s role to deal with social codes and norms or just to reflect the environment? What used to be distinguished as different categories of art is now blurred. Needlework is art, art is design, design is craft, craft is photography and video. What is art jewellery? Is the human body in focus? Wherein lays the function? Does the smell of the forest inspire or has the urban conquered the wild? What kind of reflections can be seen through that glass of red wine?
Front and back, image, myth, honesty, bareness, outside and inside. Sanna Svedestedt and Karin Roy Andersson from #diagonalartprojects want to see you in the mirror, from different perspectives, in your or their reality or in the image of it.
