If you enjoyed last Thursday’s trip, let’s have a walk indoors as well!
Artwork keeping an eye on you everywhere…
And us keeping an eye on Teresa (the engineer and coordinator of every activity at Ifö Center) – our guide …this place is so big you could easily get lost. The great insulators made at the factory here looked like gigantic piles of ceramic plates.
We arrived at the bar…built around some machine too big to remove (- according to Teresa -), what else to do than to use it for practical artistic purpose! We were greatly impressed by the light and the large areas – perfect studios for any group of artists.
A piece of cake? I don’t think so – not in any way.
In the middle of a potential crash – tread lightly, move softly, think twice – Corona restrictions? We made it through the cups and plates. 8 people.
My favourite project was the paper works by Sebastian Blomqvist – paper, paper, made only of paper. Impressive! But all kinds of artwork was made at Ifö, graffitti, painting, ceramics, weaving, 3D – nothing seems impossible.
I so loved the studios, the gigantic windows letting in that magical light. As an artist you can apply for a certain time and a place at Ifö – I wish I was – You can also support them in many ways, why not as a volunteer or friend?
Creativity is contagious, pass it on.

What an amazing place!
Glad you liked it! Yes, I found it amazing – so amazing that we are now supporting them!
As I said to Vivi, a fascinating place, Ann Christine. 🙂 🙂 I like the paper craft too.
Yes, Viveka liked them too, I know! Fascinating!
I like the face peering over the stairs, but the cups and plates make me nervous! 🙂 I also like whatever is right under them on the left.
Glad you found things not making you nervous too;-D
This is certainly a bit different. What an experience! thanks for sharing it.

Catching the creativity vibe! Awesome place.
It really was!
Such a fascinating and artistic space!
Thank you, John – I felt so too. It must be inspiring to work with so many artists over there.
I like that row of industrial skulls 🙂
They look good there – over a cup of coffee.
What a wonderful art space A-C 🙂 thanks for taking me inside even though the eyes at the entrance made me want to think twice about going in 😀 😀
What a place! And treading through the ceramic cups and plates would have been a challenge for me!!
