Bibliotek_Nordica

BIBLIOTEK NORDICA
6 – 12.5 2019

Mellanrummet

This library collection of 82 artists’ books by invited artists from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden gives a unique insight into the practice of making books in this part of the world at this moment in time.

Each artist provided the project with the first eleven books of their edition, to create ten identical libraries. In exchange for their contribution the artists each received a randomly chosen eleventh book.

The A6 book formats range from concertina, pamphlet, multiple section hand stitched, stab bound, map folds and several unique constructions. The works incorporate a variety of techniques such as screenprint, Riso, etching, relief, woodcut, linocut, lithograph, digital, drawing, painting and collage. Materials include paper, card, cloth, wood, plastic, metal and leather. Each library contains a catalogue and a poster, alongside critical writings about artists’ books from this geographical region. These texts are produced as A6 pamphlets and will be added to, as a continuation of the project.

Biblotek Nordica is a Codex Polaris production coordinated by Imi Maufe in collaboration with Megan Adie and Bent Kvisgaard. It was created for the international focus at the Codex book fair in the San Francisco Bay Area, in February 2019 and serves as a resource for artists’ books from this the Nordic countries.

BOOK RELEASE: File Under: The Work / Björn Lövin
Saturday 11.5 at 2–4 pm

Mellanrummet/Malmö Konsthall Bookshop

Null & Void Books present the book File Under: The Work / Björn Lövin, which contains a walkthrough from an unrealised ”total exhibition” based on Björn Lövin´s oeuvre; and essays by Lisa Rosendahl and Emily Segal. The graphic design is by Jonas Williamsson. This is the fourth title released on Null & Void Books.

Björn Lövin (1937–2009) was one of the first Swedish installation artists and his large scale works was critical to totalitarian systems, ranging from the People’s Home (Folkhemmet) to the consumption society, which includes some and excludes others and attract by offering safety, but at the cost of individual freedom. His career started with a solo show at Moderna Museet curated by Pontus Hultén and included solo shows at Centre Pompidou in Paris, Liljevalchs and Kulturhuset in Stockholm and at

Malmö Konsthall ((1988/9) amongst others.

In two sketches, one in english and one in swedish, the idea of the ”total exhibition” is presented, and this were to include most of his works, mostly large installation pieces and his films, as a concluding gesamtkunstwerk. In the book Lövin’s idea of the total exhibition ”Le Travail” is recreated by a digitally visualisation in 3D, creating a digital spatiality that simulate a physical one.

The book is sold in Malmö Konsthall Bookshop at a special price during the book release.

ARTISTS' TALK: Odd Matter
Wednesday 15.5 at 7 pm

C-salen

Odd Matter Studio, consisting of Els Woldhek and Georgi Manassiev, is based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The duo met in London at the Royal College of Art (MA Design Products) and have been working together ever since. The studio operates in the borderland between art and design, working with processes and materials in a spirit characterised by exploration and curiosity. Techniques from various historical periods meet in the designers’ works, resulting in unique and unexpected concepts and objects. The two designers work playfully with materials and find new surface treatments and areas of use, such as in their furniture series Guise, in which the scagliola technique, a hand-painted marbling technique from 17th-century Italy, is mingled with rainbow-shimmering car body paint.

The Odd Matter design studio is coming to Malmö as part of the Iaspis international residency programme. The two designers will be resident in Malmö during May and June, hosted by Form/Design Center. In conjunction with their visit, Malmö Konsthall and Form/Design Center are jointly hosting an artists’ talk.

In English. Admission is free but places are limited.
Co-organisers: Form/Design Center and Iaspis (the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s International Programme for Visual and Applied Artists).

FILM SCREENING: Ademeit
Saturday 4.5 at 3 pm

C-salen

This documentary-portrait by the artist Michael Bauer and the director Marcus Werner Hed is a poignant journey into the work and life of Horst Ademeit (1937–2010), with an in-depth interview, an exploration of the places he lived in and which appear in his polaroids, and his own interpretation of them. Ademeit documented the impact of cold rays – radiations that he considered a healthhazard and a potential threat; and built up an archive of thousands of inscribed polaroids. Some of his polaroids are shown in the current exhibition SPEED 2.

The film ADEMEIT (2010) is produced by Punderson Gardens, London. In German with English subtitles. Length: 26 minutes.

Free admission, but places are limited.

Bruce_Conner_CROSSROADS_1976

Film screening: CROSSROADS by Bruce Conner
Wednesday 17.4 at 7 pm

C-salen

CROSSROADS is a legendary short film directed by Bruce Conner in 1976 with original music by Patrick Gleeson and Terry Riley. It features 37 minutes of extreme slow-motion replays of the July 25, 1946 “Operation Crossroads”. “Operation Crossroads” was the name of the first two of twenty-three nuclear weapons tests the United States conducted at Bikini Atoll between 1946 and 1958. Both tests involved the detonation of a weapon with a yield equivalent to twenty-three million tons of TNT–the same as the atom bomb dropped on Nagasaki. More than seven hundred cameras, and approximately five hundred camera operators surrounded the test site. Nearly half the world’s supply of film was at Bikini for the tests, making these explosions the most thoroughly photographed moment in history.

AFTER WORK with Intonal
Friday 26.4, 5–7 pm

Mellanrummet/Restaurant Smak

A warmly welcome to an after-work event with Kali (DJ) and Golden Ivy as part of Intonal Experimental Music Festival. Restaurant Smak’s bar is open.

Co-organiser: Intonal Experimental Music Festival and Inkonst

Kali (DJ)
17–19
Kali is not only the name of the Hindu Goddess associated with sexuality and death, as featured in the well known documentary Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. It’s also the name of one of the brightest shining stars in Malmö’s murky club universe. As a DJ, Kali usually displays her more laidback side but beware: Unpredictability is the core characteristic of both the Goddess and the DJ.

Golden Ivy
18.00
Hailing from the north of Sweden, the now Malmö-based producer Ivar Lantz has quickly shaped his own eccentric sound as a solo artist under the name Golden Ivy as well as through his collaborations with Prins Emanuel on the duos own label Fasaan Recordings. At the Intonal After Work Concert, Golden Ivy will perform a semi-improvised live set with acoustic elements and electronics. Oddball touches of left-handed debauchery contrasted by simplicity and repetition.

SHORT FILMS BY LESLIE THORNTON
Sunday 7.3 at 3 pm

C-salen

The American artist Leslie Thornton has worked with film since 1975. In her films, she explores how meaning can be created, produced and distributed via and within media. Thornton: “I see myself as writing with media, and I position the viewer as an active reader, not a consumer. The goal is not a product, but shared thought.”

The first part of her epic film series Peggy and Fred in Hell (1984–2014), The Prologue, will be shown together with some of her experimental short films.

Ida_Borjel

GUIDED TOUR WITH IDA BÖRJEL
Wednesday 27.3 at 7 pm

Main exhibition hall

Join the Malmö poet on a specially composed guided tour of the ongoing exhibition. Ida Börjel singles out selected art works with a poetry reading and comments.

Ida Börjel was born in 1975 and lives in Malmö. She debuted in 2004 with Sond, which won an award for the best debut poetry collection. She has since published another four poetry collections, which are characterised by a curiosity about language and the world outside literature. With a clearly political appeal, she has succeeded in capturing our collective feeling and recollection of division and guilt, and the power and manipulative ability of language. She was nominated for the August Prize for her poetry collection Ma and has been translated into more than 10 languages.

Börjel is one of five poets who has written a new text for the publication SPEED 2 / Konst → Litteratur (SPEED 2 / Art → Literature). Malmö Konsthall has joined forces with Malmö City Library and invited the poets to write something based on works in the SPEED 2 exhibition. The publication is available free at both Malmö Konsthall and Malmö City Libraries.

Free admission but places are limited.
