GAIR (Gagnef Artist-in-Residence Programme) presents:
Ottilia Adelborg today
Notes on contemporary art and ”preposterous history” revisited
A lecture by Camilla Larsson, starting with the assumption that we are in the midst of a historiographical turn in contemporary art. Art historians and critics argue that artists are driven by an archival impulse, creating art where lost historical information is used in order to challenge and rewrite history. If the less noticed Swedish artist and writer Ottilia Adelborg would be subject for this kind of revisionist work, how could we imagine this dialogue between peers? Focusing on works by artist Malin Pettersson-Öberg (SWE), currently part of GAIR, Tacita Dean (UK), and Goshka Macuga (POL), all working with travels, correspondences, and cultural identities as motif and artistic method, Camilla Larsson will ask how Ottilia Adelborg might serve as a source of inspiration today.
Caroline Edman, Head of Public Outreach (guides, programs & exhibits), Carl Larsson-gården gives a short introduction to the friendship and working relation between Karin Larsson and Ottilia Adelborg.
Camilla Larsson is an independent curator, writer, and PhD candidate in Art History at Södertörn University. Her main focus of interest is performance art and theories of performativity. Recent exhibitions are Pia Sandström´s solo presentation Blick, dikt, strata. (Mellan två ögonblinkningar) at Kalmar art museum, 2016. Between 2006-2015 she worked at Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm, where she curated shows with artists such as Sharon Lockhart, Andreas Eriksson and Klara Kristalova. Board member of Mossutställningar and NKF – Nordiska konstnärsförbundet.
The presentations are held in English and connects to the art project: The Legacy of Ottila, which through contemporary art, collaborations and public events investigates history, feminism, identity and social practice in relation to the artist, illustrator and author Ottilia Adelborg (1855-1936).
*Both the lecture room, and the home of Karin and Carl Larsson is wheelchair accesible through a ramp and a narrow door opening.
