ABOUT THE PROJECT:

The Dream Room–The Passion of Collecting
6 June-4 September

For the summer’s major exhibition, Liljevalchs has invited 13 of the country’s most prominent experts of antiquities, all familiar faces from SVT’s television programme Antikrundan (Swedish Antique Road Show) – and provided them with a gallery each. In contrast to their regular job with other people’s objects, they are here assigned to give shape to, and share, their private collector’s passion. The audience will encounter 13 personal dream rooms, which will provide an insight into the powerful drive behind collecting and, especially, the great love for objects.
The experts who will create their dream rooms at Liljevalchs include: Joakim Bengtsson, Anette Granlund, Björn Gremner, Lars-Yngve Johansson, Bo Knutsson, Knut Knutson, Jörgen Martinson, Claes Moser, Peter Pluntky, Jan Ribbhagen, Andreas Rydén, Eva Seeman and Max Sjöberg.

Exhibition curators: Lena Rydén, head of Antikskolan, Stockholm, and Mårten Castenfors, director Liljevalchs.

The exhibition is accompanied by a comprehensive catalogue with interviews and essays about each expert by Petter Eklund, photographic portraits by Mattias Lindbäck, a survey of styles by Lena Rydén and over 40 unique photographs of objects, taken by Mattias Lindbäck. The exhibition catalogue, poster and all other graphic material are designed by Mattias Frodlund and Hanna Moe / Morris Pinewood Stockholm.
