Lacking any decent drawings made by yours truly, I thought I´d write something about Swedish artist and humorist Carina Kågström, whose work is on display at the Art Gallery right now. It looks very unassuming, her images are mostly hung unframed, exposed. What she does is point her finger at the way we think about ourselves and each other, in a very funny way. Her drawings are published by comic book publisher Kartago, and they also have the best presentation of Carina Kågström that I have found online. Her own website, such as it is, links to her blog, which has been inactive since 2013 and refers to Facebook and Instagram.
As far as I can see, one can´t buy her books online. They are for sale at the Art Gallery, and I imagine one can find her at libraries and bookstores. No e-books, sadly, as the book I leafed through at the gallery was definitely off limits for me (strong, poisonous smell). Still, I could go and appreciate her at the gallery until 2 days ago, which I did three times. And I can befriend her on Facebook – which I am on nowadays, to be able to connect with the other students in my class.
The crappy photos were taken with my phone camera, just to give you an idea of what it looked like from the perspective of a gallery visitor.
