Story

 

2003-2004: Kindo failed running an own art gallery in Nordhemsgatan, Göteborg. Lack of experience. But fun and good experience. First thing after gymnasiet. 

2007-2011: Artist smithery school. Träakademien, Sveriges hantverksråd.

2006-2016: Part time work on projects planning, gardening, metal work and supervision for construction of public buildings. My best school ever.

2010-2012: Antiquarian restoration on Statens fastighetsverks Nya Älvsborgs fästning and Carlstens fästning. Historic smithery. Production and cunsulting, via contractor. Also on Kareby kyrka with Martti Risku (master blacksmith).

2012-207 Full time sculptural work and design for public and private places.

2017 Jessica van Doorn Fännick started co-working on art projects.

Why public space?

I don't know if it was my upbringing in "miljonprogramsområde" or my frequent stays on children's hospitals as a kid that made me fascinated by public art, but it was in my early years. As long as I can remember I've been able to feel all kinds of physical sensations from watching art. From a physical need to puke to a sense of not getting enough, that my eyes are to small to take in the beauty.

My motto is Sustainable. Not just in ecology, in material and techniques of choice or quality, byt in theory. The art work must work for all people who passes it and in all time that files by, without feeling out of place or outdated. After all it's art for all people in all times, regardless age, background or interests.
