Permanent Installation

Material: Glass 

Through aperiodic mosaic is a permanent installation placed at Lerkrogen community Center in Älvsjö. The installation is made of glass and was initially made for a group exhibition organized by ÄGD and was later bought by the community center for permanent display.

Hembygdsgården is a traditional symbol of the Swedish culture. In this work I have created a new window, based on an oriental mosaic, replacing the original one.

The project was carried out by ÄGD in collaboration with Studio Ateljeföreningen turbinen, Brännkyrka & Hägerstens hembygdsgård, Studiefrämjandet Stockholm and Swedish Local Heritage Federation, with support from  Stockholm Municipality, Culture Administration, Arts. Other artists who participated in the exhibition is Anna Stina Erlandsson, Christina Götesson, Åsa Elieson, Po Hagström, Karin Häll, Mari Kretz, Oscar Lara, Makode Linde and Christian Partos. Other persons involved is writer Magnus Bons, Nicholas Smith, associate professor of philosophy at Södertörn University, Tove Stenius pole. Laws. at Lund University and Nathalie Álvarez Mesén.
