Yesterday I spent the afternoon in Stockholm where I haven’t been since early spring. My first stop was my favorite coffee shop – Vetekatten – for afternoon coffee.


Then to the art show opening at Magasin 3. Part of the show was in a park at the harbor.


‘Garden art’


At the gallery Katharina Grosse, Sol LeWitt, Walter De Maria are the trio of artists making up the main exhibition. Katharina Grosse made the enormous inflated spheres. Just right for my garden, if they wouldn’t blow away.

I also favored the restfull video installation by Pipilotti Rist, where one lays on a pile of carpets and watches a projection on the ceiling. One is filmed under water in a lake with colorful debris floating around. It’s like laying on the bottom of a lake for about a half an hour. The other is at ground level looking up through the grass, bushes and trees, etc. A bugs eye view. I thought I might fall asleep, but no, it was exhilarating.

And the snacks where as usual plenty and good, including a fried tofu sandwich catered by Bun Bun a Stockholm food truck.
