Good Morning, Africa

“We all know Kasper likes to draw by now, but how about his photographs? Will we ever have the chance to see them in a gallery context?”

These words have actually never been spoken out loud, but we all know too well we're thinking it. Well then – now there's hope, since Kasper is exhibiting some nice pictures of sandals as part of the “Good Morning, Africa” exhibition at the Kunsthalle Helsinki, opening tomorrow and closing on August 19th.

The exhibition will be a “colourful jubilee” of everything African, complete with workshops featuring clowns – and then the sandals, of course. I'd hurry if I were you!

Nytt nordiskt arkiv @ Galleri Oro

Dying to see some original artwork by Kasper Strömman but don't know where to go? Now's your chance – Kasper is exhibiting at Galleri Oro in Gothenburg, Sweden until the 20th of June. Nytt nordiskt arkiv shows a “rich and carefully composed variety of sequences & personal accounts from a selection of young contemporary artists ... showing various expressions and strategies found on the borders between art and literature”. My contribution to this is some pretty drawings.

There's also a Zine Symposium on Saturday the 12th, so if you're in town you'd be a fool not to go!

Doolbyland-sarjiksen arkistot avautuvat!

Christer Nuutisen Rumbassa vuodesta 2005 ilmestyneen Doolbyland -sarjakuvan vanhoja jaksoja voi nyt lueskella täällä!


If you like this blog, why not try Kasper's and his sisters daily blog on Söderströms this month? Unlike this blog it's updated every day, and Kasper's even drawn an exclusive comic strip for the occasion. So now's the time to brush up your Swedish skills... and if you can't be bothered there's always the pretty pictures.
