Love Enqvist - A name for the one who doesn’t move

Persistence, generosity, loss of control, alienation, network, desire, dreams, heterotopias and the edges of society - the water is a home and place of imagination for these things. The water is a connector, the parts drift by and maybe a view comes from nowhere, drifting into place. 

Love Enqvist has on several occasions used both the water and own personal memories as a starting point in his artistic practice, taking him from Stockholm to Istanbul by kayak, to the end of the world and a disappearing language as well as to a man, who travelled with a raft and shared his near death experience.

On Saturday, Love invites you on a performative twighlight journey, a physical and psychological drift, passing fragments of language and memory, movement and disappearance, travel and documentation. Life is flux and the journey aims towards a thought process on a story’s origin and destination.

LOUISIANA, DENMARK - LIVING
 
 
LIVING  1 Juni - 2 Oktober 2011

The Louisiana’s exhibition series Frontiers of Architecture I-IV, which the museum has been showing in the years 2007-2011, uses architecture’s deployment of other disciplines to illustrate the new movements and paths that are shifting the frontiers of architecture. With its overall theme LIVING, the last exhibition in the series, combining nos. III and IV and filling half the total exhibition space of the museum, turns the spotlight on the question “How does the Good Life look today?”

After Work Talk at the Culture Festival Aug 2010
 
 
Folke Tersman är filosofiprofessor och kliver in i debatten med frågan vem som egentligen har rätt när det gäller klimatets utveckling? Fokuseringen på klimatfrågan har skapat en förvirrad diskussion som i förlängningen kan hota beslutsamheten att göra något åt saken. Konstnären Love Enqvist tittar ur sitt perspektiv på sprängkraften och misslyckandena i de utopiska samhällen som skapades i slutet av 60-talet och som fortfarande existerar idag. Hur påverkar bilder av framtiden våra liv och vad händer med nästa generation som tar över?

En kulturpersonlighet snackar med en miljöprofil varje dag på Gröna Plattan. Et voilà - ett spännande möte kan uppstå. Moderator varje dag är författaren Pernilla Glaser. Veckans After Work Talks: 17:30-18:30

Tisdag: Marika Lagercrantz och Pim Bendt
Onsdag: Stefan Jarl och Christina Rudén
Torsdag: Love Enqvist och Folke Tersman

DHARAVI- DOCUMENTING INFORMALITIES
A collaborative project - send me an email if you wish to purchase this book

Redevelopment plans threaten the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of people who live and work in Dharavi, a city within the city of Mumbai. The book Documenting Informalities dispells the idea that a "slum" can only be a location for despair.The book reveals thriving communities, innovative architecture and powerful grass roots politics. The book gives detailed, personal accounts of the many ways in which we are all linked to Dharavi?s people and industries. Essays by Saskia Sassen, Arjun Appadurai and Sheela Patel compliment maps, photographs, drawings and interviews made by a group of artists and architects from The Royal University College of Fine Arts in Stockholm.

TELL TALES

Rundgang Staedelschule

An open window, Tell Tales and various draughts. The open window places  focus on the view over Frankfurt skyline. The window could be a sail, driving the pirate ship that the Art Academy could possibly be. 
 

 

A breeze blows through a kitchen that is cluttered with ‘tell tales’, i.e. a piece of yarn that shows which way the wind is blowing.They are used on sails or cars in wind tunnels.By carrying out a wind test in a kitchen, I wanted to attach the attention onto something everyday and make it more foreign and mobile.
