Jour Fixe: art, food, drinks around a new work by Ylva Trapp

 

Welcome to the fifth edition of Jour Fixe. Jour Fixe happens on selected Friday nights in Stockholm: a regular meeting of experiencing art, food, drinks and conversations at home. This edition of Jour Fixe takes place in collaboration with UNDERVERK’s Season 1 – Hemmet.

 

For this occasion, Ylva Trapp has created a new work deriving from the location where it is shown – the apartment. Homes have their own specific timeliness and their stories are woven by the people who over the years inhabit them. Trapp traces the independent existence of the rooms and evokes a moment of co-presence with the apartment’s possible past. By selecting and amplifying certain aspects of the place, she creates a situation that is bordering on the uncanny and takes the visitor centre stage.

Ylva Trapp, born 1981 in Uppsala, lives and works in Stockholm.

 

Studied Art in the Public Realm at Konstfack (University College of Arts, Crafts and Design) in Stockholm and Fine Art at the Art Academy in Umeå.

 

Her artistic work deals with the everyday appearances of poetry and politics. It can be in the close study of the absurd consequences caused by the shortage of housing or the subtle duplications of all the stains on a studio-floor. It can be done in the repeating of fractions of un-noticed body movements or the adding of 1:1 scaled drawing fitting into the environment.

 

Runs a moveable art space, Konsthall323, in a red Volkswagen Golf together with Frida Krohn. Collaborates in some work with Ellakajsa Nordström.
