Dreams with Malin

What’s on your mind right now:
– Naked bodies, christmas songs and odd sunglasses.

Who’s visual expression makes you feel overwhelmed?
– Just now I’m in love with the work of the Posternak twins and of the image making duo Hart + Lëshkina.

Where do you turn to online for inspiration?
– Instagram and Pinterest. Practically endless and always accessable.

What do you dream about?
– To live a creative life. And to figure out whatever that actually means, for me.

What piece of writing opened your eyes?
– The second sex by Simone de Beauvoir.

What’s your relationship with time like?
– I do most often think I have more time than I actually do. But on the other hand I constantly need to remind myself that there is no rush to figure out what I want to do or what I want life to be like. Time will show.

What’s your preferred space?
– Anywhere among creative and eye opening people.

Do you feel a sense of belonging in your field as a creative? How?
– Not really. But I hope and believe that it will become clear for me in time. Or if doesn’t and I will just keep exploring different fields of my creative self. Sounds alright to me aswell when I think about it.

What makes you excited about work?
– Those moments when you get lost in the process, kind of forgets time and space and when you finish, you can feel how that state of mind got captured in your work.

Name a defining moment in your life.
– When I moved to Stockholm from a smaller village. It has given me so many possibilities, but most importantly, it has made me feel free.

“In 1987, I traveled to italy as part of an italian course. Here are two of my most memorable moments that have changed the way I look at art. In Venice I visited a Matisse show. Every painting opened a new world of shapes, colours, compositions. Now this really was painting!
His paper cut outs resulted from an illness, from which time on he was bound to bed and later a wheelchair, unable to paint. For me, this picture, showing Matisse in his 70s, symbolizes a vital, almost compulsive urge to create, that I, too am familiar with.”

“1987, same trip. In Rome I had my first encounter with Bernini’s sculptures. Back in Poland, I had seen his work, but only in a slide show in an art history class. Arrogantly, I thought to myself “well, another baroque sculptor..“. But this time, I saw his work in the flesh, and what a revelation this has been! The angel, playfully interacting with Habakkuk’s hair, carved in heavy marble, incredibly skillfull yet somehow humorous and light. This moment convinced me that sculptures must be seen, touched and experienced. Pictures almost never do them justice.”

Habakkuk and the Angel, Bernini, 1656-61 Chigi Chapel, Rome. Found here.

“There are two very similar sculptures by Brancusi and Jean Arp, a shape that I too had made in 1984, completely ignorant of these two artists, while studying art in a socialist Poland.
Since then, I am wondering about inspiration and kinship. Why is it that someone decides on a shape, a certain gesture? Why are there sometimes such profound similiarities? It is as if something immaterial is trying to become material, but through the mind and hands of an artist. This picture shows the studio of Brancusi in Paris, that represents a place of perfect harmony for me.”
