March, 3 – 18  Lena Öritsland “Cranes, rust and sky” (photo)

Photographer Lena Öritsland exhibits pictures from the Gothenburg Harbour.

Lena has been walking with a camera on her shoulder since she was 17, and when she began to approach her 30s, she wanted to take the opportunity to develop her artistic side, she sought and entered the University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm. Some of the photos from her graduation exhibition were then taken to a collective exhibition for Swedish photography at the Modern Museum. Today Lena works full time with her artistic photography.

The shipyards, harbor and cranes have always been in Lena’s life and after moving back to Gothenburg from Stockholm, she understood how much they symbolised. When she received free access to the harbor area in 2015, she spent during 6 months about twenty days in the harbor. She documented cranes, docks, ladders, raindrops, early morning till late in the evening and in all kinds of weather. Then it took a whole year before Lena came up with what she wanted to do with the pictures and what expression she would have when she showed them.

Now you can see her pictures in the exhibition “Cranes, rust and sky”.

Nov, 11-26 Maria C Bernhardsson (paintings)

Marias paintings flow in color, shape and imagination. It was the dream of a house that got her to start painting her own fantasy house and then it has continued.

Characteristic for Marias painting for many years was naivistic house motifs and strong colors. In recent years, however, the houses have become more diffuse and a little dreamy and painted in many layers but still with strong colors. There is a lot of feeling that rules and Maria rarely knows what it will be from the beginning.

“The color is the most important to me. Gladly with as many colors as possible in combination at the same time. Contrasts, strong colors-bright pastels, dark-luminous, angular, skewed, dreamy, naive, layer on layer. Something is hidden there under all the colors – something pop out. “

Vernissage Saturday November, 11 at 12-16



Oct, 14-29 Olle Brandqvist (paintings and sculptures)

RiverCity Gallery presents Olle Brandqvist in this exhibition, showing paintings and sculptures. We will see especially his watercolors, but also get to know his sculptures. Probably it is his stone heads that are most famous. But even the ttinsculptures, undecided people and the wild nature stuck in the visitor’s eye and memory.

Olle is educated at Konstindustriskolan in Gothenburg and Konstfack in Stockholm.

Over the years, he has received ATatens Arbetsstidendium (Scholarship) on two occasions. He is represented at Borås Art Museum, in Stockholm, Södertälje, Marks, with several municipalities, at Statens Konstråd and in the municipality of Mark. Larger outdoor work is in Borås and in the sculpture parks at the Astely Gallery in Uttersberg and in the Hishult Art Hall.

The list of exhibitions is very long and includes art museums and art galleries as well as galleries in Sweden and abroad. The latest exhibitions have been at Borås Art Museum, Glasets Hus in Limmared and recently Hishults Konsthall. Now it’s Gothenburg that meets Olle Brandqvist.

Vernissage Saturday October, 14 at 12-16



Sept, 23 – Oct, 8 Jim De Block “Neither here nor there” (photo)

We are happy to present Jim De Block and the photo exhibition “Neither here nor there”.

Jim De Block is a Belgian photographer based in Göteborg, Sweden. He studied Fine arts photography at the Royal Academy in Antwerp. Jim is also a professional dancer and choreographer currently employed at the GöteborgsOperans Danskompani. His training and practice as a dance artist is clearly visible in his photographic work, where the body in relation to space is always a central theme. 
In his photographic series “Neither here nor there” he proposes a poetic renegotiation of the relationship we humans have with our surroundings. How do we relate to our environment and how can we imagine ourselves moving through and occupying our habitat differently?With his work he draws a parallel universe, envisioning an alternate reality where the impossible seems possible and the mundane seems remarkable. The “Neither here nor there” series have been exhibited at the Copenhagen Architecture Festival this year and will now be shown in Sweden for the first time.

Vernissage on Saturday September, 23 at 12-16
