Two new publications

Ylva Ogland, She, an Introduction, and Sharon Lockhart, Milena, Milena. A work in progress

Bonniers Konsthall presents two new publications


Ylva Ogland, She, an Introduction
With texts by Sara Arrhenius, Nicolas Bourriaud, Marina Fokidis, Sinziana Ravini and Nicola Trezzi

Born in 1974 in Umeå in northern Sweden, Ylva Ogland is one of the most acclaimed Swedish artists of her generation. From a very early age she developed a unique artistic language, delving into the entire register offered by painting. She surrounds herself with and regularly returns to her motifs, consisting of personal mythologies rooted in her individual life experiences. Her paintings often include installation elements and ritualistic performances, as she processes such subjects as memory, death and different states and levels of consciousness while also addressing the line between art and reality.

She, an Introduction is published on the occasion of her solo exhibition She in Four Acts at Bonniers Konsthall in Stockholm in 2015 (until July 26). The book’s rich image material contains a wide selection of works starting with a project in process from March 2015 and going back to 1990 when the artist was 16 years of age. The book includes texts by Sara Arrhenius, Nicolas Bourriaud and Sinziana Ravini, Marina Fokidis and Nicola Trezzi, all writers, scholars and curators who have followed Ogland’s work for a longer period of time and in very different ways have been deeply influenced by her world of ideas, memories and fantasies.

A special and limited edition of 50 copies has also been produced. Here the book is given a handwritten title and is placed in a beautiful archive box. In the box is also a piece of cloth, cut from one of Ogland’s paintings and a work of art in itself. Finally a number of facsimiles of Ogland’s work are placed in the box.

Sharon Lockhart, Milena, Milena. A work in progress
With texts by George Baker, Fanni Fetzer, Lars Bang Larsen, Camilla Larsson

Artist Sharon Lockhart first met Milena in 2009. Their ongoing relationship over the following six years gave rise to a trilogy of exhibitions titled Milena, Milena. In the exhibitions, as in this volume, newer works were framed by earlier biographical ones, creating a dialogue between past and present. The book is not conceived as an archive of those exhibitions but rather as its own articulation of the same work, which is still in progress. Milena, Milena thus offers both an unfolding of a body of work and an evolving exploration of childhood.

Sharon Lockhart was born in 1964 in Norwood, Massachusetts. For the past two decades, she has portrayed individuals and their communities, showing aspects of their everyday lives in moving image and still photography. Lockhart draws inspiration from the filmic and, in turn, her work has had a great impact on the development of film as a means of expression in the visual arts.

The publication is published on the occasion of the exhibition Milena, Milena initiated by curator Adam Budak at Center for Contemporary Art, Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw, Poland, Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm, Sweden and Kunstmuseum Luzern, Lucerne, Switzerland.
