Museum Mission: Olle Nyman ateljéer och konstnärshem
Competing with The Ivar-Lo museum and Evert Lundquists Ateljé for being among the less famous museums is the former home of Olle Nyman. It is being restored till probably September, so here are glimpses of the outside.
His wife, Lena Nyman, was the first woman to have a driver's licence in Sweden.
There is also a café.
But the studio is open.
The hanging order, from left to right in the entire room, is chronology.
And there is room for a new artist for a few months at a time - this summer, Tamara de Laval.
During the inaugural ceremony, the former director of the Modern museum said that at a young age, Tamara left her home with a note to her parents: off to India, don't you worry!
Her work is influenced by her travels,
reminding of artistic political maps with news on them.
I asked Tamara de Laval about the technique, as there are several layers of milky translucent plastic sheets, stories hiding behind stories.
Sometimes I wash everything away and start over, she explained. Eco friendly, I thought.
Available at Olle Nyman till August 21st.
