The american Morran has done things the swedish Morran never had. Like meeting hens and flying aeroplanes. Now they can share their stories with each other :))
I never said it was from Kristen!! It was so obvious for me. Sorry about that and thank you Kristen :)

I've have invited four artists who will reflect on these items all in a different way.
BUT I also like to start a correspondance. The museum will write letters to peole who are invited too respond on the questions I mentioned. I want to fill the INBOX in the museum. All the letters or messages will be shown in the exhibitions space.
What do you think do you want to participate???
It's a beautifull sunny sunday and I will be spending some time in the sun. I'll take my camera.......I have an idea for the 'Morran project'!!

Hello, lovely ladies! If you have the time - please do a picture to the Morran book! It doesn't have to be a portrait, as long as the mainsubject IS Morran (like yourself thinking or Morran... ...Morran text...something that Morran would like and so on). Here is a little more information.

Hello Knutselers I hope you are all fine. I know some of you have been travelling.
I went to the studio for the last time, cleaning up a little bit after myself, saying goodbye. I picked these on my way back home. Then I forgot about photographing the rest ;))

Here are a few more shots of the Gehry building in Cambridge. This time I took them from my bicycle, so I was able to stop. No risk taking involved!

dear friends I'm back from the Basque coast and first I have to say:
WHAT, NO NEW POSTS?
where is everyone?
(there are still some "day in life"-reports missing...!)
I spend 3 days in the city of Bilbao, and 10 days in San Sebastian, both in the north of Spain. the weather wasn't great (it rained for about a week and the rest of the time was mostly cloudy) but the two cities were so fine, I hardly noticed my constantly wet clothes and the cold I caught.
apart from Gene Kelly style singing and dancing in the rain, and trips to the beach (San Sebastian has 3 of them!), I also visited a few museums - so I'll give you a little report...
Bilbao is famous for the Guggenheim, but it also has the Museo de Bellas Artes, a fine museum with lots of spanish work by artists like Zuloaga, Goya, Murillo, Chillida, Tapies, and some international ones.
from October 10th, the museum will also show a selection of Antonio Lopez's work, which I would have loved to see.
the Bilbao Guggenheim of course is a landmark and has a fine collection as well.
the architect mr. gehry did everything he could to make it very difficult for people with a fear of heights like me, but I tried not to be too much of a sissy and made it to the Rothko (one of my favorite artists) on the top floor...
my favorite piece however was Richard Serra's "the matter of time", an installation of 7 giant steel sculptures you can walk through.
in Getaria, a town near San Sebastian, I visited the brand new Cristobal Balenciaga museum, another excample of challenging architecture (...), which shows the work and life of the fashion designer. very stylish!
San Sebastian has the San Telmo Museoa, and the "Kursaal", a place for culture and arts, which also is the headquarter of the annual international film festival, had a small selection of work by Marc Chagall, which, I hate to say, is not really my cup of tea - but I don't know anything about his life and the stories he was telling in his paintings - so please forgive me!
(pics: Serra's sculptures at the Guggenheim, me in front of the San Telmo Museum, Chillida's "Wind Comb" in San Sebastian)
I hope you're all having a great autumn!
ps: HAPPY belated BIRTHDAY, Camilla!!
the idea of a Morran portrait book is so wonderful, and if you want me, I would love to contribute - and all the other girls from the knutselclub would too, I'm sure!
