Konstlyftet: Memory Intensa
11.10 – 12.11 2023
Konstlyftet is a creative initiative aimed at adults with cognitive and/or physical disabilities. The initiative provides a platform for participants to share their experiences through temporary exhibitions and public art. ‘Memory Intensa’ is the thirteenth exhibition within the project.
The participating artists in the exhibition are Emma Bengtsson, Kerstin Berg, Mahdi Jama, Lisbeth Johansson, Anja Löfgren, Linnéa Persson, Marino Satalic and Olle Trottestam. The group has worked together in the workshop under the guidance of the artist Max Avasoo throughout the month of August. Each participant has worked based on their own ideas using charcoal drawing, spray, acrylic painting, textiles, and drawing, and a selection of their works are displayed in the exhibition.
The exhibition is shown in the Workshop at Malmö Konsthall.
Konstlyftet is an extension of a previous initiative at Malmö Konsthall, now taking place in collaboration with Funktionsstödsförvaltningen in the City of Malmö, MKB Fastighets AB, and Malmö Beautification and Planting Association.
Konstlyftet also includes a public art commission to be inaugurated at Limhamns Sjöläge on November 15 2023. The artists Louise Bertilsson, Kristian dos Santos Gonçalves, Nelly Escalante, Anna Jönsson, Erik Lönn, Katharina Tuunanen, and the artistic project leader Jamila Drott will be in attendance. This commission is the third of its kind.
Exhibiting artists: Emma Bengtsson, Kerstin Berg, Mahdi Jama, Lisbeth Johansson, Anja Löfgren, Linnéa Persson, Marino Satalic, and Olle Trottestam.
