Behind her, wave after wave of explosions destroy a #home. The simple home, so lovingly cared for, becomes a ruin.
This horrendous moment is permanently etched into Sarah’s memory. In the fist sequence of the video work, she and Lama are rushed from their neighbourhood towards an unknown new home and an uncertain #future.
The war in #Syria has forced millions of people to abruptly flee from their homes. Some of them came to #Avesta – and some of the #Syrianrefugee #women came to Avesta Art to assist the artist OLEK in the extensive and painstaking project of #crocheting OLEK’s installation for Avesta Art 2016. This was an encounter that would come to strongly affect both people and art." an excerpt from the catalog txt written by #karinperers #avestaart2018 #runawayfrommenow art and director #olek director of photography @karro.p 🙏 @avestaart #avestaart2018

Last Saturday my most complex (physically and emotionally) installation opened in @avestaart. I truly cannot verbalize all emotions associated with building it. Everyone did more than just her/his job. We gave it all and effects are beyond the words. Here are some images taken by talented @karro.p and even though she documented our work beautifully, you really need to experience it by walking in. The show runs til September 16th and then I hope to find a new home for this work. Thank you the entire #avestaart2018 team. #loveyouall #intheblinkofaneye #runawayfrommenow #olek

Avesta Art is a contemporary art exhibition in the spectacular old industrial heritage Verket.
The exhibition deals with the subject Illusions/Allusions through various expressions, techniques and perspectives. Existential questions, redefined history and science blends with the questioning of what´s real and what´s just seemingly real?

I’ve never wanted to be a mother. In 2011 I did a whole room installation titled (as an homage to #traceyemin )
"I do not expect to be a mother but I do expect to die alone". But let me explain something. #ittakesatribetoraiseachild
Not all women need to be mothers and this doesn’t make us less of a woman. However I believe we all need to support women who decide to bring new human beings into this fucked up world.
I did this piece to show my support for women who we need to celebrate. I used green, blue and orange-yellow for the body as it’s not about any race. I didn’t crochet the head/face as it’s not about an individual.
The rest, I’ll let you to figure it out. #olek #pleasetouchbodyboundaries #crochet #pregnancy #women #sisterhood @manacontemporary @metametagasm #woman4woman
