A review about the current exhibition
I am delighted to share this excellent and well-written review of my current exhibition. The text is written by Diana Berntsdotter Vallgren and can be read at the link below!
I am completely overwhelmed by all the great response, curiosity and interest in connection with Thursday's opening of my new exhibition at Härnösand's art gallery. Never seen people queuing and waiting outside an opening of a vernissage like this before.
Very happy and grateful to receive such a nice reception in a new city and this beautifully located art gallery. As you can see, I didn't have time to take many pictures from the opening, but there will be filmed material shortly where I give a presentation of the exhibition and also tell the background to it.
The exhibition follows the Konsthallen regular opening hours and runs until November 11.

New experiences and materials
A really fun and successful working day after months of thoughts, ideas and planning. It is a blessing to have access to so much knowledge and expertise in new areas close to where you live. Unfortunately I can't say much about today's work as it is under secrecy but one thing I can say is that I am looking forward to the coming weeks as I will continue with this project where I look forward to putting all the pieces together. Soon the goal is close!

Two new sculptures
During the last week I have been working on producing my new works for one of my exhibitions later this autumn. With the help of the sculptures were built up and placed in various places in the forests of Bohuslän. The works are part of a new larger suite that I will continue with for a longer period in the future. More info and the background to the sculptures will be available here on the website shortly.

Work continues during the summer
Summer is finally here, but work continues in full swing ahead of the autumn's various exhibitions and projects. Right now I am working on preliminary studies for new works that I will build up in the coming weeks on the west coast of Sweden. It feels really good to soon build new works again despite the heat. The works are a new branch of my artistry that I will present in the future. The preliminary studies and sketches on unprimed linen canvas and pastel.

Nature as a place and symbol of recovery
Now you can read texts and see a video documentation about my site-specific work that was presented in the show Torino, Italy.
In the work I explored the borderland between the personal dimension and nature as a function and place for recovery in
an urban city environment. Read more about the work there

The spring is coming and running
The schedule is full and a lot of work awaits in the future both with exhibitions, assignments and projects. Then it can be quite nice to just sit in peace and make a model for one of the autumn exhibitions. Slowly and slowly settling into new challenges that await at a comfortable distance.

Archive research for new works
It is always just as exciting to go through photographic collections and archival material. The material will form the basis of my new works that I will produce during the spring. It is truly a favor to be so close to such a great image treasure and new knowledge from the people at Västerbottens museum.

The new exhibition is open
Many thanks to all of you who came yesterday to the opening. I am still completely overwhelmed by all the nice comments and words of encouragement! It means a lot to me personally to present this exhibition that shows a large part of my artistry with various projects and works that I have devoted myself to in recent years.
It feels fantastic to show this in this exhibition Our Scenery at Lidköping's art gallery in their beautiful premises. The exhibition runs until February 25 and follows the art gallery's regular opening hours. Warm welcome!
5 January 2023
Solo exhibition, Lidköpings konsthall
I have the great pleasure of inviting you to my solo exhibition at Lidköping's art gallery, which opens on Saturday, January 14.
This is by far my biggest exhibition to date. It feels exciting to show my various projects and works that span several media and years.
In my work with the exhibition "Our Scenery", I have delved into our relationship to the concept and meaning of landscape.
In recent years, in my artistry, I have worked with how the border between the personal dimension, nature and scenography can tell about our ideas about what we expect from a landscape but also how it is experienced or interpreted in our everyday life and storytelling tradition.
The exhibition runs until February 25 and follows the art gallery's regular opening hours.
A warm welcome to Lidköping Konsthall!

Research at children's hospital in Torino, Italy
Last week I received a beautiful message that there was an exciting workshop on the theme of mountain care rooms at the Regina Margherita Children's Hospital in Turin, Italy. The activity was based on my work which is currently exhibited in the exhibition The Mountain Touch at the Museo Nazionale della Montagna.
It feels great that the workshop focuses on developing a dialogue between natural elements and my artwork in this context, which was based on the theme of care and isolation. This initiative is based on young patients who are involved and were allowed to work with sensory activities with natural materials and examine the artists' techniques. This project is intended as a basis for research, with a particular focus on the concept of well-being. Which of course feels very honored that my works can be part of this context and at the same time can be significant for people in other places.

New plans for 2023
Now the schedule for almost 2023 is ready. It feels extra nice to go on Christmas leave and gather strength for all the exhibitions that awaits 2023. I always try to have exhibitions to work towards because I think it's easier to work towards set deadlines and at the same time which makes it possible to show new works.

I am currently working full-time on the preparations for my upcoming solo exhibition at Lidköping konsthall, which opens in January. It feels really good to be able to show this exhibition that I have worked on for a long time.

Research for upcoming installation
In my upcoming exhibition I will present a new work which is an installation with linen fabric. I have been working on creating a pattern with leaves from the Ornäsbjörk. It is a Swedish tree that was found in the middle of the 18th century, which is deeply rooted in our urban city and park environments today and is Sweden's national tree. The species can only survive with the help of man. Here is an extract from a Norwegian plant book from the late 19th century where the original tree is shown for the first time.

The Mountain Touch exhibition, curated by Andrea Lerda, continues Museomontagna’s Sustainability Program, launched in 2018. The exhibition presents the works of 14 Italian and international artists in dialogue with a scientific narrative curated by Federica Zabini and Francesco Meneguzzo, researchers at the Institute for BioEconomy of the National Research Council, which for years has been conducting the largest-ever experimental campaign on the effects of forest therapy and immersion in green environments together with the Italian Alpine Club and the Reference Center for Phytotherapy at the Aou Careggi in Florence.
I am very proud of the warm reception that people have expressed about my installation in this ongoing exhibition that opened last week. I will shortly update site with more installation images and text about my site-specific work the is presented in the exhibition which runs until April 2, 2023.

Soloexhibition, School of Economics
I am very happy about the nice hanging that was made at the School of Economics, the motifs from Forecast Diaries and how the frames blend so well into the space, I think it feels so obvious. It feels honored to let the entire suite of "Forecast Diaries" adorn their walls in front of the students and employees but also for visitors from outside.
The exhibition can be seen throughout the autumn on weekdays between 9am and 4pm. Welcome to enjoy at Sveavägen 65, Stockholm.

Fantastic exhibition I am part of
I'm happy to finally share the news that I'm participating in a great group exhibition opening in November at the Museo Nazionale della Montagna in Turin, Italy. I will show a completely new and site-specific work that I have been working on for the past few months in close collaboration with the curator Andrea Lerda. It feels very flattering to be part of a fine production where art and science together with the latest research bear witness to man's need for nature, where it is discussed and made visible in a new light.
The exhibition "The Mountain touch" runs between November 4, 2022 - April 2, 2023. More information about the exhibition can be found at the link below.

Solo exhibition in Stockholm
Welcome to exhibition and art talk with Peter Stridsberg who will be presenting his series (photographs) Forecast Diaries 1 - 7 (2021) at Stockholm School of Economics with opening 26 October until the middle of December 2022.
The geographical locations where Peter Stridsberg temporarily finds himself, have been the source of inspiration in how we position ourselves in the outside world. During his residency at Nordiska Akvarellmuseet in Bohuslän in Sweden, he developed the project Forecast Diaries, where he explored how we are confronted with changes in uncertain times. With the help of recorded weather reports that describes the weather on the sea between Kattegatt and Skagerrak, he positions himself in front of the changes taking place in nature around him.

New group exhibition
Photo: Sanja Matoničkin
I am participating in a beautiful photo exhibition at Dunkers Kultuhus in Helsingborg. In 2012, the first photography class began at Fotoskolan Munka. Now, 10 years later, we are celebrating with an anniversary exhibition and have invited former students and teachers to show self-portraits.
One aspect of going to school is sharing a context with others for a while. Work side by side or together, before separating again. Some people will remain, in memory or in real life. You meet others now and then, but then no more. Regardless, these meetings leave an impression. The exhibition runs on October 9 2022.
7 September 2022
Looking forward to this exhibition
At the beginning of next year I will have my biggest solo exhibition so far. It feels really counterintuitive to sit in the autumn darkness and work on this exhibition with new and older works side by side.
More information about the great exhibitions is coming during the autumn.

The show will be based on the joint exhibition "Blicka" at Umeå Konsthall, where for the first time we will experience their works in close dialogue with each other. The artist show is free of charge and no registration is required.

Talk with Anna Nordqvist Andersson
A nice conversation in Klippan's Konsthall with Anna Nordqvist Andersson. A conversation that was about my view of country painting and how it marked and shaped my artistry. But also of course about my methods that I use in my various projects. It was really fun to have this conversation together with Anna Nordqvist Andersson.

The exhibition runs until 18 September
