GREYZONE by Basecamp: Jannike Brantås Michael Ellburg Rikard Fåhraeus M

When did you set foot in a "greyzone" last?

The artist group Basecamp is now making its third appearance. This time, a joint effort with the working title "Greyzone" (direct translation from the swedish word gråzon) . It is a complete installation on floors and walls with light and sound, where visitors can sit for a while to disappear into a grey zone.

Basecamp consists of:
Jannike Brantås
Michael Ellburg
Rikard Fåhraeus
Monika Masser
Björn Olsén
Kenneth Pils
Lotte Nilsson-Välimaa

GREYZONE

“Greyzone” does not refer to drug dealing, file sharing or any other ethical/legal grey area. Instead the title refers to those vital, perhaps temporary, areas that are protected from the demands of profitability or efficiency. “Greyzone” provides an opportunity to retreat in active passivity where visitors, individually or collectively, can experience a sense of calm contemplation, reflection and wonder

For us, "Greyzone" is a relative concept: an alternative, an opportunity to experience something different. Something that is not certain but is still an aesthetic, artistic opportunity.

Jenny *1910 †2006  By: Terese Bolander, Nanna de Wilde and Christina Strong.

By: Terese Bolander, Nanna de Wilde and Christina Strong.

An exhibition based on an death estate.

"First, it is nothing then it is something then it's nothing again." Terese Bolander

"I feel a sadness at getting to know a man afterwards. A sadness that perhaps grows every subject I am familiar with. "Nanna de Wilde

"It becomes so clear that she existed, but also that she is dead." Kristina Stark

In autumn 2006, bought the artists Terese Bolander, Nanna de Wilde and Christina Stark an estate after a person unknown to them. With these objects because they have over three years looking for Jenny, the woman behind things. From different perspectives and with different methods they have tried to get Jenny to appear. They will visit an astrologer, and had set Jenny's horoscope, demonstrated her medications for a medical student and asked an ethnologist analyze her possessions.

All items in the estate have been documented and have become a portrait of a life. The artists have, through their own interpretations of the material was worked out his artwork depicting Jenny, works form three different entrances to her and the objects she owned when she died.
In June 2009 the estate was donated back to the same organization that it was purchased by.

Jenny *1910 †2006

Book Box Jenny * 1910 † 2006 released on "Satumaa*kustanamo" will be displayed throughout the exhibition.
