Swedish Picture Book of the Year
Fågeln i mig flyger vart den vill [The Bird Within Flies Wherever It Wants] by Sara Lundberg is named Swedish Picture Book of the Year. In conjunction to the award ceremony during Littfest, the book is showcased in an exhibition at Bildmuseet.
John Akomfrah / Purple
British artist and filmmaker John Akomfrah creates his most ambitious piece to date – an immersive six-channel video installation addressing climate change, human communities and the wilderness. Combining hundreds of hours of archival footage with newly shot film and a hypnotic sound score, Akomfrah brings a multitude of ideas into conversation.
The works in Eco-Visionaries present alternative approaches to, and ideas about the relationship between human beings and the environmental, social and mental ecologies – systems that are intrinsically linked and interactive. The participating artists propose more sustainable attitudes towards the place of human beings on this earth. The exhibition includes video works, drawings, sound, books and installations.
Jochen Lempert / Sudden Spring
Jochen Lempert (f. 1958, Germany) is a trained biologist and has been working as an artist since the early 1990s, with black-and-white photography as his primary medium. Flocks of birds, insects, ocean waves or the interplay of light and shadow on foliage; he observes his motifs with the gaze of both a researcher and an artist. In 2017, Jochen Lempert received the prestigious Camera Austria Award for Contemporary Photography. This is his first solo exhibition in the Nordic countries.
