Exhibition: "RUVAN" at Berns, Stockholm 2013
"Ruvan" presented by Galleri Kleerup at Berns, Stockholm 2013.
“I discovered Sweden seven years ago. Thousands of pictures of people and places and things I love and beautiful abstractions”
The pictures shown at Berns, Stockholm are divided in two categories. The photos in the dining hall of Berns Asiatiska are from his coming book about Sweden, a poetic and atmospheric depiction with tones from the Swedish summer landscapes and wintery suburbs through an American perspective. The exhibition is presented in a conceptual manner providing a taste and feel of the series rather than revealing it all. The lobby of Berns Hotel features a more coherent and framed collection of photographic works from the latest ten years of Ruvan’s life. Friends, parties, landscapes and portraits are mixed with his distinctive tone."
