ARTISTS AT RISK x S.W.A.N.
During one week + one evening, we teamed up with SWAN @swan_residency_network and ARTISTS AT RISKS @artistsatrisk to fundraise as much as could to support artists and art workers fleeing the war in Ukraine who come to Sweden. Thanks to all of YOU who donated money we came up to over 60.000 SEK (6000€) which went directly into SWAN’s on the ground action to provide housing, art studio and art material to the artists and art workers coming to Sweden from Ukraine - and also Belarus and Russia where if opposing this war you are persecuted.
THANK YOU to everyone who came to our fundraising soirée ❤️

FARVASH & LUCA
Power duo @farvash & @lucage0rge
Farvash invited Luca George to work in her Misschiefs art studio this week towards a new collaborative performance piece made especially for Misschiefs .
Focusing on elements of the absurd within each of their practices they will attempt to piece together and highlight the influcence storytelling, and more specifically, science fiction has on their work. In collaborating for the first time both artists intend to continue their shared approach to art as an access point to the anatomy of ones own desires.
FEEL FREE MOVE THE TILES

This week is taken over by EMMY @emmylinda77
Linda Emmy Al-Ghussein is a half-Palestinian who grew up in Västerort outside of Stockholm. After her Bachelor in Textile Art at Konstfack, she took a Masters in Sculpture at the Finnish Academy of Art. She has been awarded several prizes for her spatial installations and sculptures, for example the Merita Promising Young Artist grant 2017, and the Work Scholarship from the Swedish Cultural Foundation @kulturfonden 2020. She works both individually as well as in the art duo Restlessminds
At Misschiefs for her takeover of the central guest artist stage, she is building a spatial installation with sculptures that have teleported out of their worlds of images, to become available for us to experience tactilely. For her, it is important that art is not only viewed from a distance, but also can be experienced with our bodies.
COMING UP, YNGVILD @yngvildsaeter.
Norwegian artist, Yngvild Saeter is born in 1986, she lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.
She is represented by Andréhn-Schiptjenko @andrehnschiptjenko.
Apart from her art school education Saeter also has a degree in social and cultural anthropology and political sciences. This informs her work, in which she creates sculptures and objects from selected readymades- mostly spare parts from motorcycles and other vehicles. In an exploration of ideas of masculinity, protection, speed and the heroic she creates hybrid forms that are at once recognizable yet defy comprehension and categorization.
Welcome #NSDOS @koodes_k.
After studying dance, Kirikoo Des aka NSDOS, felt the need to create his own sound in order to explore movement. This is how he started imagining a whole new sonic order, an alternative approach to music –through abstraction, he pushes the limits of the body, objects and sound. His alternative vision and the way he reinterprets technological tools have made him one of the most important techno hackers of his generation. NSDOS doesn’t create, he regenerates and transmutes music. His creative path is empirical, sometimes organic as he puts sensors on himself, insects, his public in trance, trees – everything that comes on his way – and transcribes movement into sounds.
