(A) Moral Thread

There’s a group exhibition in Detroit Gallery (Stockholm) that just opened. Curated by Nina Bačun and Juan Echeverry ‘the aim of (a)moral tread is to generate a bridge between artist and craftsman’. The focus of the exhibition is on Zidnjaci works that’s are Croation emroideries usually made by women, traditionally with sort of ‘moral’ teachings for a housewife. Anyway, craftman Željko Kraščić has worked on several ideas provided by artists from around the world. The idea was to bring this ‘moral’ education onto a new level. The image here shows the piece Željko made basing on my texts – the exhibitions provides more thoughts behind the teachings. The exhibition is open until 20th of July.

The new issue of Widerscreen is out with a theme ‘Text Art’. I wrote an article on creating C-64 PETSCII graphics for it. Suggested.

I’ll travel to East London Comic Art Festival the upcoming weekend. The festival is on from 16th to 18th. We’ll have a small Kutikuti booth there (of course) & give away a pile of Kuti magazines for free. I’ll have a talk on my work and KK as well on Sunday 12.30–1.30 pm (The Talks Marquee) and sign some books (Simply Samuel & The Book of Hope) at GOSH! booth as well. You can buy the tickets for the talk in here. The line-up of the festival smells like quality so I expect to see you all there!

Just an anecdote: last time I went to London (that’s about 10 years ago) I indeed ended up being robbed late one night. I managed to get back to Finland by selling a bagful of books (everything else was stolen) to couple of stores and getting a new passport + a cab to the airport with the money from sales. Anyway, among the stolen material there was a 160-page sketchbook almost completely filled with drawings, texts and ideas. I mean: really a LOT of detailed ready-made drawings, ca. 50 poems that were supposed to become out as a book, lots of sketches and so on – wild stuff indeed that only couple of people saw/read. So, London, I expect to find that book the upcoming weekend…

With colours…
