Exciting people who lives an exciting life.

Kakan Hermansson & Klas Hassel

We at Ricklundgården have the privilege of being visited by exciting people who have lived an exciting life, made incredible trips and created art all over the world.

So it is with all of those who come to stay at our residence, each different from the other but what they have in common is art.
Last Sunday we said goodbye to @rnbhermansson and @klashassel who were with us to record a small art project, namely a movie!

Some fun and eventful days are over and these goodies have returned home. We strongly believe that we will see both Kakan and Klas again here in Saxnäs because it was probably true mutual love at first sight

The jury’s motivation reads: “We believe Sofie Karlsson will have good opportunities to work concentrated, deepen her material knowledge and gather ideas as a residence fellow at Ricklundgården. Sofie comes to the mountains in Saxnäs during a period when nature explodes in colors and is visually dramatic. With her interest in nature’s shifts in color, shape and structure, we are convinced that the place will really add new perspectives to her art. ”

Visit by Sara from Sápmi Salasta

Visit by Sara from Sápmi Salasta

It is impossible to describe in words how this whole week has been so I have decided not to do it! Instead, I will tell you about yesterday when we finally got a visit from Sara!

Sara works as a project manager for @sapmisalasta and earlier last winter when we talked, we had many great ideas and thoughts about possible cooperation across the mountain border.

Hej! Vad vill du göra?
