Stockholm Design Week 2019

C-Print is teaming up with Swedish interior design house Layered to present a display of artworks during the upcoming edition of Stockholm Design Week 2019 in their showroom on Engelbrektsgatan 21.
One of the participating artists is Royal Institute of Art (Stockholm) grad Ulrika Gunnarsdotter who will present an intermedia installative work (work in progress as we speak) that departs from a found Donna Karan jacket in the sand on the beach. The interest in the finding lies partially in its consumerist stature, in light of the brand iconography.
The work has involved a replicating process in which Ulrika creates a derivative version of the jacket using cheaper materials. The two jackets in its final juxtaposed installing at Layered will create a dialogue and offer a comment on fast-disposable consumer habits and realities about sustainability matters affecting present day. Our project with Layered marks the first part of a curatorial residency we are doing at GELB this year. Ulrika Gunnarsdotter has previously exhibited at Tensta Konsthall, Arkitekturmuseet, Botkyrka Konsthall and Centre Culturel Suédois in Paris.
