Cornelia Sojdelius gallery, Stockholm, sweden
In Anna Odells new movie ”X&Y” glimpsed a väggverk in the artist's room, which is certainly more than I was curious. It is rabbits in the swarming pattern? Yes. In a new group show at Cornelia Sojdelius gallery has Odell stitched together this older work to the intricate installation ”And death does not exist”. Here you can see that the rabbits are joined together with coarse stitches. But it had multiplied the djurkroppen is stiff, probably dead and the thread crimson. The work fits perfectly into the theme of ”What not to cook”. An unusually lödig ' group exhibition, in which five artists will interpret everything from förflutenhetens landscape to the maximum presently global warming.
the Story is written about in ”A secret life”. 2. The book of mormon. Martin Kylhammar: ”A secret life. Verner von Heidenstam and Kate Bang”
Albert Bonniers förlag
Not so rarely it happens that it pops up a secret drawer, which stood and dusted in a breeze, and the story needs to be rewritten. When linköping university professor Martin Kylhammar got access to the wooden box where Kate Bang kept diaries, photographs and letters that told a different truth about her and Verner von Heidenstam than the established. They had a 20-year relationship, which ended with Kate Bang was driven away from the Övralid, a home they had built together. ”The dane” as she was called skandaliserades and came badly out of the story. Kylhammar provides with the help of her own documentation is a much truer picture, not without new scandals. Read the DN's review here.
New life in nackstel genre. Emma Stone as Abigail in ”The favourite”. Photo: Yorgos Lanthimos 3. Film. ”The favourite”
After the debut of ”Dogtooth” have I not been so weak for Yorgos Lanthimos. Fascinated and impressed maybe, but avtänd of the cold structures in ”The lobster” and ”The killing of a sacred deer”. But now I'm... in love again. Lanthimos crashes completely oceremoniöst in the middle of the holy of holies – kostymdrama straight into hjärteroten of the british history – and manages to inject a whole new life in the nackstela the genre. The passionate triangeldramat between the childless queen Anna (Olivia Colman), her lady-in-waiting, lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) and the uppnosiga sleeper, Abigail (Emma Stone) is full of blood, sweat, tears and all sorts of body fluids. Sometimes funny, sometimes filthy, sometimes sad (bunnies!) and in addition, a skådespelarfest in baroque luxury packaging. Read the DN's review here.
Voluptuously about Henry Miller: But’s Lib. 4. Essay. ”Men's lib” by Elaine Blair
the New York Review of Books
In a voluptuous essay on the author, the vagabond and anarchist Henry Miller, it is stated: ”He is very good at men”. But how was it really with the women? The essay can be found in the latest issue of the New York Review of Books, and on the journal site, with the reason of a nyutgivet literary defense of skandalförfattaren to novels like ”tropic of cancer” and ”Black spring”. It is highly interesting, both when the text is about how Millerska words like ”cunt” and ”whore” have changed meaning in our modern, misogynikänsliga ears, and when the writer takes on Miller's views on sexual(a)morality.

Mandolin Orange offers turned all the way down americana. Photo: Kendall Bailey Atwater 5. Disc. Mandolin Orange: ”the Tides of a teardrop”
The obvious comparison is Gillian Welch and David Rawlings; also Emily Frantz and Andrew Marlin of Mandolin Orange are a couple both on stage and in life, and of the way to make turned all the way down americana with maximum sensitivity is the relationship obvious. And fixed their duo is now extended to accommodate a few more, the focus is still on the two people who know each other well and are not afraid of silence in his music. He writes the songs, she says that she fills in where needed. Both sing with voices so mild that the large gravity probably is necessary for it not to start sounding too polished.
