aaLinda Bergman - Great Grandmother, Gna Project, 2018.
16/11/2018 - 18/11/2018
"My parents have a closet filled with tablecloths made by my mother, my grandmother and my great grandmother. I often process my photographic motifs physically; smashing them, burning them, painting them. In the project presented here, I hardly dared touch the objects I photographed – the tablecloths. I barely dared to iron them before photographing them. I have a tremendous respect for my heritage, for the past. I like that they are made by women’s hands, by my blood relatives. To me, the tablecloths are symbols of female creativity but also of an era that ends with me."
The project Great Grandmother (2017 – 2018) is presented as pigment prints on acid-free cotton paper in wooden frames with UV glass. The images measure 18x18 cm.

A Room of One's Own
In collaboration with and curated by
C-Print, TjejLand and VERK | Curerar
The point of departure for the group exhibition A Room of One’s Own at Wetterling Gallery is marked by a curatorial joint venture between three independent art initiatives based in Stockholm; C-print Journal, TjejLand and VERK, each with an objective to create space and room for contemporary art in text, print and social media. Standing at the forefront at Wetterling Gallery notably is photography and video. In A Room of One’s Own the three initiatives are joined in their background of presenting nomadic exhibitions outside own physical rooms and temporarily intersect here with the established first-tier gallery circuit through Wetterling Gallery. As such, the title itself mirrors this very focal point and spatial fluidity, as well as the shared aspiration to stress new borders for art encounters.
TjejLand - showing publication with artists: Linda Bergman, Cecilie Rasmussen, Fan Wu, Yan Preston, Alix Marie, Helen Korpak, Tereza Cervenova, Ramona Guntert, Sophie Green.
C-print Journal was founded in 2013 by brothers Ashik & Koshik Zaman as an online publication to highlight diversity in contemporary art, which has since grown into a mobile curatorial platform for artistic exhibitions and collaborations.
TjejLand is a printed publication about contemporary photography by women, which is self-published by artist Petra Stenvall. TjejLand is driven by the objective to create the due room for women in contemporary art that is sometimes missing.
VERK tidskrift is a digital publication with lense based art as its core focus. The publication aims to highlight achievements and currents within the field and stresses dialogue and new art encounters. VERK tidskrift is founded by Linda Bergman (editor in chief) and Susanne Fessé (publisher). Curatorial projects are presented by Linda Bergman and Susanne Fessé as VERK | Curerar.
