Last summer Svea Vikander (producer of Art Crush on KALX radio) and her daughter Evla visited me in my studio. Svea recorded the visit, and recently aired parts of our conversation.
I very much enjoyed meeting Svea again (we met first time in 2015 when I exhibited at Velvet da Vinci in San Francisco) and was very happy to meet Elva and discuss colours with her.
Below is the recording and a picture of Evla (the star of the show) in my studio, wearing a piece of jewellery.

SAMTAL, FINISSAGE OCH SOMMARDRINK
ONSDAG 7 JUNI 18.30
PLATINA, ODENGATAN 68, STOCKHOLM
Välkommen till ett samtal om att göra skillnad på egen hand. Helena Johansson Lindell och Johanna Törnqvist diskuterar material, motstånd, görande och hantverk!
Johanna Törnqvists konstnärskap rör sig mellan slöjd, mode och konsthantverk. Törnqvist har i projektet Precious Trash lyft fram handarbete och visat hur ett hantverk kan transformera vardagligt avfall som chipspåsar, snöre eller vaxduk till åtråvärda kläder och objekt. Precious Trash handlar inte bara om handens skicklighet utan går på djupet med vår tids brinnande frågor om material, produktion, konsumtion och livsstil.
Smyckeskonstnären Helena Johansson Lindell omfamnar material som ur ett samhällsperspektiv, anses låg klass, låg status, eller dålig smak. Det är hennes sätt att försöka upphäva fördomar som härstammar ur dessa hierarkier. Lindell plockar upp material från loppmarknader och second hand-butiker, mestadels plast, ibland träleksaker och köksutrustning. Hon tar isär, klipper upp och bygger nya former med hjälp av såg, lim och fil.
Re-handle featuring Precious Trash! arrangeras i samband med Lindells utställning Re-handle på Platina. Utställningen kan ses fram till 10 juni.
