MADELENE OLDEMAN (SE)
The Vertical Experience
Madelene Oldeman’s exhibition The Vertical Experience has no horizon. Oldeman has created large suggestive ink- and watercolor drawings where some of the works have a difficult time fitting their whole length in the exhibition room. The picture surface in the drawings is so elaborately worked that it seems to want to soar out of the paper and become an object in the room. One drawing takes the step fully and becomes its own object. Another work is caught in the middle of a process where the artist continues to work on it through the exhibition period. The exhibition as a whole gives a soaring impression, where everything seems to strive towards transcending into a new form or state. The exhibition room itself transforms into a box which catches part of the illusion.
She frequently works with large figurative drawings. The running, hard to control ink in contrast to the fine tipped pen is a technique that has been in practice for a couple of years. Now color has been added. The water color lays like a hand colored photograph in the drawings.
Madelene Oldeman is a graduate of Malmö Art Academy. She had her latest solo exhibition at Kulturum in Hammenhög and has made commisioned work at the childrens psychiatric ward in Malmö among others. She is represented in several municipalities, the National Public Arts Council, and a design company. She has received grants both locally and in connection with international collaborations.

ZARDASHT FARAJ (SE)
“The process of creating images originates in the need to share my inner landscapes, in order to break out of isolation and create some kind of bridges, to communicate and recognize myself within my surroundings.
Geometric space as a downstairs room is the starting point in this process. Painting is my way of dealing with the fear and anger caused by other people’s acts, other people’s choices of action." Zardasht Faraj
Zardasht Faraj was born in 1977 in Baghdad, Iraq. He is Kurdish and has lived in Malmö, Sweden since 1991. He has studied fine art at Skånska Målarskolan, Östra Grevie Folk High-School and is currently studying for his Masters degree in fine art at Malmö Art Academy.
