Ernst Billgren, The man from Doggerland, directed by Tomas Alfredson


From Anna Bohman Gallery´s homepage:

"Tomas Alfredson (a Swedish film director) came up with the motifs, so I didn’t have to worry about my own ideas of what should be painted and could devote myself completely to the painting itself.

Doggerland is the name of the area of land between Denmark and England that suddenly sank into the sea 10 000 years ago. Ever since I was a child, I have believed that this is where I come from, for lack of anything else.

This exhibition is a democracy project."

More about the exhibition here.

Ernst Billgren was born 1957 in Stockholm. He is one of Sweden's most significant contemporary artists. In addition to painting and sculpture, he has also worked with scenography, literature, film, music and furniture and glass design.

He is represented in the SSE permanent collection with the work Svan and the author of the book Vad är konst? (What is art?).
