“Pissed Elin”

 

 

Pissed Elin, Sara Möller

Celebrating spirited femininity

A work by the talented ceramic artist Sara Möller, created during a residency at Guldagergaard

 

Women’s rights activist, journalist, environmentalist, pacifist, cultural critic and social commentator; the Swedish born writer Elin Wägner had many roles. She was deeply engaged in social issues, and throughout her life she debated these questions in her books and fought to change the prevailing social order in life. She argued that women ought to have the same rights and duties as men, but that this should not require them to adapt to the distorted male system. Instead, women could and should find another way for the society than the male one of war, exploitation and appropriation of the planets ressources. Elin Wägner kept pondering about these issues throughout her life, and she is central to the development of the feminist movement.

 

All these different aspects of women’s rights, pacifism, and environmental awareness come together in Sara Möllers sculpture, which celebrates not only the woman and writer Elin Wägner, but also her heritage, her visions, her pioneering spirit and her wish to change society for the better. We have had the pleasure of following Sara’s work on the sculpture, from beginning to end, here at Guldagergaard, and it has been a wonderful journey.

Exhibition: Always Becoming by Linda Swanson

 

 

Linda Swanson, Always Becoming, Guldagergaard

Note: Official exhibition opening on Sunday August 14th at 2 p.m. (14.00)

 

Time: 10.00-16.00 / 10 a.m – 4 p.m.

Place: The Applehouse Gallery

 

Can fire feel cold? Could air be dense and heavy? And how can we invert or alter our perception of the world? These are some of the questions we have to ask ourselves when confronted with Canadian artist Linda Swanson’s work, which is now shown in the Applehouse Gallery.

 

The exhibition is inspired by the Platonic solids – geometric models, which Plato believed represented the proportional order underlying the cosmos in all its manifold forms and qualities. There is the tetrahedron representing fire, the hexahedron representing earth, the octahedron representing air, the icosahedron representing water, and the dodecahedron representing aether.

 

Through the small-scale sculptures, we get the feeling that in spite of our ability to explain the natural world, there is still a certain mystery to how matter changes form, seeming at first to be one thing, then becoming another. These gaps between what we know and what we can’t know are at the center of this exhibition and through the forms those gaps are kept open for a while – and all guests are invited to touch.

We look forward to see you!

Symposium: Alice in Wonderland

 

 

Alice in Wonderland

“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”

– Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

 

The adventure of Alice in Wonderland has been a great inspiration to Guldagergaard. Taking a stroll through the park can sometimes make us feel like it is we, who fell through the rabbit hole and entered the wonderful world of dreamlike fantasy, lopsided logic and peculiar creatures; a world where anything can happen. It is about time to celebrate this famous and charming adventure, and what better way to do it than to invite artists from all over the world to participate in an Alice in Wonderland Symposium here at Guldagergaard.

 

In the last weekend of the symposium, the work will culminate in an event worthy of the adventure – maybe we’ll even have a tea party, who knows? We only know we are looking forward to see all the artists and visitors there!
