Art talk: Jeff Olsson

Welcome to this art talk with Jeff Olsson, the artist behind Fulsommar brinn - screened on the big screen in the atrium in March 2023. March 26, 12.15-13, in the Jacob Dahlgren Room.


- I relate to my visual world as a place that I temporarily visit when I draw. With my drawing I search for landscapes and people. Not knowing who or what awaits is an important part of my work process. The content of the drawings almost always takes place at night, I am interested in the ambivalence that the night offers. Darkness can bring danger and discomfort, but there is also a kind of poetic potential in the indeterminacy.

Come and listen to Jeff - and ask questions. Open for all!

Sign up here, a light lunch will be served.

Jeff Olsson was born 1981 in Kristinehamn, Sweden. He lives and works in Gothenburg, Sweden and was educated (MFA) at Valand Academy, University of Gothenburg, between 2003–2008.
