‘Exposure’ Rejmyre, Sweden. July 2011

Reflecting on time spent in Rejmyre
(It is now just over a week since I arrived in Rejmyre to take part in Art LAB.) I have been immersed and consumed with daily commitments…engaging with other artists, getting to know the township, experimenting, discussing work made here and elsewhere. This certainly has been an opportunity to engage, contemplate and explore in the calmness of a new state of isolation.
Not only “art” was made and thought about but berries where gathered, puddings where baked, kayaks where expertly mastered and the boules challenge is never over. Sissi and Daniel have established a wonderful space for challenging creative inspiration.
‘Exposure’ There are many unused rooms in the Rejmyre glass factory building but this room invited engagement. It is a room without light, only a slight spill at the entrance. When I entered this room it offered potential. The darkness suggested prosaic questions: Is it empty? Is it full? What was the space used for? This room asked for disclosure and with (a) subtle performative intervention the room will be exposed to the senses (of the audience).
