Today something was done to the rabbits outside the entrance to Dunkers Kuturhus.
Perhaps to make them less mobile.

Some press reviews (in Swedish):

Lindberg De Geer – Orientering

We walked around the exhibition, smiling (beacuse of the fine, touching, genial and amusing art and because we listened in the ear-phones to the artist talking about her art and her life).

The following pictures are pieces by Marianne Lindberg de Geer that are displayed at the exhibition.
The media was provided by Dunkers Kulturhus.

From the information sheet for the exhibition:

“Few starts shine with such illuminative presence over the Swedish art scene, such as Marianne Lindberg De Geer. Her personality can be described as feisty (in the most positive connotation) and she brings a rich life of experiences. In her art she is playful, intimate and humane. In other words, she possess some of the most provocative features in our contemporary western society. Needless to say, the debate is ever present and a Lindberg De Geer exhibition always carries itself with a scent of revolution in the air.”

“Even though she ofte examines identity through her art, as well as her own identity in others, this is not just an exhibition where you can get to meet the collected works from one of the absolute cream of the Swedish art crop. It’s a story, set in the present, where the dizzy and dazzling story we call life is skilfully described.”

“During a brief period in the 1970s Lindberg De Geer resided in Helsingborg. Now she’s back with a great exhibition at Dunkers kulturhus showing paintings, sounds, humour, installations, islands, a dark labyrinth, tombstones, collages, earnestness, traces, text, moving bundles, rabbits, pigs, film, debate and Pippi Longstocking.”

a must see

From the website of Dunkers Kulturhus, Helsingborg

“Marianne Lindberg De Geer, som under en tid på 70-talet var bosatt i Helsingborg, kommer nu tillbaka till staden och Dunkers kulturhus med en stor utställning som innehåller måleri, ljud, humor, skräp, installationer, öar, mörkerlabyrint, gravstenar, collage, allvar, spår, text, bylten som rör sig, kaniner, grisar, film, debatt och Pippi Långstrump.

Få stjärnor lyser med sådan självklarhet över det svenska konstlandskapet som Marianne Lindberg De Geer. I bagaget har hon en rik livserfarenhet, och en personlighet som vägrar sitta tyst. I sin konst är hon lekfull, personlig och medmänsklig. Det vill säga något av det mest provokativa man kan vara i våra tider. Debatten är därför ständigt närvarande och hennes utställningar bjuder alltid på en känsla av revolution i luften.

Snacka konst med Marianne Lindberg De Geer på:

my translation of the first paragraph:

“Marianne Lindberg De Geer, who lived in Helsingborg for a period in the 1970’s, is back in town and Dunkers cultural centre with a large exhibition that contains painting, sounds, humour, garbage, installations, islands, labyrinths in darkness, tombstones, collages, seriousness, tracks, text, bundles that moves, rabbits, pigs, movies, discussion and Pippi Longstocking.”

To me this sounds like exactly what I want to see right now, so away boring minimalism and perfected aestethic.
I might change my mind another time.
But it’s spring, right!?
