“Every day we use various kinds of cups in order to replenish for our bodies with a sip of water, a cup of dark coffee or a glass of fresh fruit juice. Looking at mugs in the cupboard, we seem to spend about 3 seconds to consider which cup shall be taken according to the contents. Of course if you have a favorite cup, it tends to be used continuously. This is probably the moment when the taste of individual is reflected.”

Impressions are something hard to put into words — or images. They are fleeting, fractured, and never give an objective overview of the experience. As such, no two impressions are ever the same and it is this Karl Grandin seeks to explore with the show, “The Omnipollo,” at Kuvva Gallery. Herein, the viewer is introduced to Omnipollo, the nomadic beer-brewing project headed by Henok Fentie and Karl Grandin that designs and brews small-scale batches of craft beer in cooperation with breweries around the world, and its mythology. The story of Omnipollo has grown, shifted and developed as the project has. It is no set thing but a shifting, organic project that, while spearheaded by these Swedish beer-enthusiasts, remains an individual experience.

Dennis Eriksson made 12 illustrations for The Museum of Medieval Stockholm, to tell the story of medieval times. All of them has been printed on canvas to be seen as a permanent part of the museum. The museum was opened in 1986 and reopened in 2010. It describes the emergence and medieval development of Stockholm and is built up around some of the permanent heritage monuments, which came to light during the archaeological excavations on Helgeandsholmen (The Island of the Holy Spirit) between 1978 and 1980. The display area comprises 1,750 square metres and there are some 850 objects on display. The objects come from the whole of the town area.
