Exhibition opening: Patrick Nilsson
It’s time for a new artist to exhibit at A house and with that comes, of course, an exhibition opening mingle.
Patrick Nilsson’s drawings and imagery communicates directly. Although the images sometimes have conflicting perspectives, we are immediately drawn into a tale that puts our mind in motion. There is something playful in these drawings, which like comic strips is easy to unravel. But what the story tells is rarely anything but playful. With precision and an underlying sense of humor the artist often portrays male figures in their vulnerability to both their own and others’ darker sides. It is as if the artist is examining how different forms of violent roles can take shape and emerge at the surface of a sheet of paper, as architecture or as nature.
An exhibition in collaboration with Galleri Flach.

A house lobby
25 – 26th April
Exhibition: Målar du nåt fult så målar jag över
The artist-couple Jacqueline Östlind and Thomas OKOK Gunnarsson have been painting together since the fall of 2018. They work with ink, crayons and markers on paper and they paint on canvas with acrylics, spray and tape. Both abstract and figurative.
When their two separate styles meet, new visual landscapes are discovered. The painting process, usually a lonely work, is replaced with a shared journey. One of them might work on something for hours, that in the breath of a second is overpainted by the other. It’s an inspiring work, but also demanding. They both have to put their egos aside, let go and trust each other and believe in the final result. The magic is hidden in their joint venture.
April 4, 2019, the couple had their first exhibition at Restaurant and bar Ling Long. This time it’s here at A house. The exhibition partly consists of pieces dragged around India during their recent two-month stay there, partly of works made soon after their home-arrival and partly of works that are made here at A house just before the exhibition opening.
Except for being an artist, Jacqueline also works as a tattoo artist and have been exhibited work at Liljevalchs Vårsalong, Asplunds, Waterfront, Nockeby Bageri and in her own art studio: Stateljén, Bromma.
Thomas is also a music artist, going by the name “Swedens Most Handsome Rapper”. He released his debut album “Tommy” fall of 2018. Prior to exhibiting his art with Jacqueline, he has exhibited his work in Paris, New York, Lublin, Osaka, Kyoto and Stockholm.
Follow them on Instagram; @styrofoam_gallery and @ArtByOKOK.
The exhibition runs in A lobby until the end of May.

IteamCon är Iteams nya serie halvdagslånga fördjupande temaworkshops på ämnen som är i ropet.
Den 6:e mars kommer Iteam att hålla deras allra första IteamCon event. Temat är AI (Artificiell Intelligens). Iteam tänker däremot inte hålla någon klassisk föreläsning om hur AI kommer sluka alla jobb, eller växa vilt bortom all rimlighet och förinta eller förslava mänskligheten. Fokuset kommer istället vara mer jordnära och användbart. Vad är statusen på AI idag? Vad kan man använda den AI som finns idag till? Hur kan AI hjälpa oss att förenkla vår vardag här och nu?

Exhibition opening: Jan Svenungsson
Welcome to the opening of Jan Svenungsson’s exhibition at A house
In his work, which takes its departure in surrealism, Svenungsson has been using a wide variety of media while focusing his imagery on a few recurring image types such as chimneys, maps, and bloodstains. In recent work, these thematic restrictions have been broken down. In the series ”Paintings”, begun in 2010 and featured in this exhibition, no master narrative is present. Each image stands alone.
An exhibition in collaboration with Galleri Flach. www.galleriflach.com
RSVP at https://jansvenungsson.app.rsvpify.com/

About Design Sweden
Don’t think of Design Sweden as an organisation. Think of us as a confidant. A silent ambassador that works on your behalf, providing advice, steering debate, lobbying for change. Helping shape better conditions for working as a designer.
For over half a century Design Sweden has been an axis for Swedish designers. However a whole lot has changed since Rune Monö, Carl-Axel Acking and Sigvard Bernadotte chaired the organisation in the 50’s and 60’s. The world has evolved in disruptive ways and design as discipline has developed to reflect advances in new technology and organisational practises. We have gone from confining design to the industrial space to considering it as an all-encompassing process and culture, with an ever-growing amount of job variations. Today, design is present in all companies and organisations and is an unquestioned cornerstone for all start-ups and new initiatives. From its unique vantage point – exploring and analysing emerging behavioural patterns and cultural shifts – design plays a vital part in shaping our surroundings.
