25 Lemon Trees, No Gardeners

In 25 Lemon Trees, No Gardeners, Klara Källström and Thobias Fäldt follow up on the media depiction of the Greek crisis, a continuous project first published by B-B-B-Books in 2011 (Europe, Greece, Athens, Acropolis).

In the summer of 2015, Källström and Fäldt happened to travel along the decision making of the so called Trojka - the European Commission, the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank, and the meetings that started off in Brussels on June 23rd, continued to Berlin and subsequently lead up to the bailout referendum held in Greece on July 5th.

The vantage point for 25 Lemon Trees, No Gardeners is a fake news story concocted by some of the major European news outlets. The headlines exclaimed that the Evangelismos Hospital in Athens had 45 employed gardeners but no garden and this came to be a perfect metaphor for the reasons behind the Greek economic crisis, and presumably Greek wastefulness. The truth of the matter however, was that the hospital indeed had no garden, but neither did it have any gardeners. Upon closer inspection, it did however have 25 lemon trees. (...)

Who is Salt?

A tough female action-hero finally updating the modern role-model that our children so desperately need. Or maybe a figment of imagination that an artist has interlaced with contemporary social critique. But then again, perhaps merely a product of the Military Entertainment Complex.

So, who is Salt? This question is waiting to be posed to the hundreds of millions, through writings on the walls, through whispers between friends, on our ways, and in the comfort of our homes.
But we, we have preceded it. This is Salt.

Village

Village explores a complex web of language politics of Canada and the very format of a photobook.
Language is both means for communication and a platform for politics in Canada. Especially in Quebec, where a forgotten layer of indigenous linguistic history lies. Klara Källström and Thobias Fäldt explore this delicate legacy employing the use of documentary photography. It includes using the photographic caption in a conceptual way and locates the project within the history of subjective documentary, especially quoting Robert Frank’s famous The Americans in its references.
In its core Village is a document of certain time and place, thus by extension a project of documentary photography. Between the politics of language and acuteness of vision, Village suggests layers of conflicting meanings on its apparently two-dimensional surface.

Introduction by Paul Paper. Complete text is found in the PDF.

Village has been granted distribution support from the Swedish Arts Council hence it is available at all Swedish Public Libraries. It was nominated at the Swedish Photobook Award 2015 and at the Photobook Award at Les Rencontres d’Arles in France 2015.

Wikiland 2007-07-12 - 00:59:46

After 2011, the work on Wikiland has continued and the time span has changed to 2007-07-12–00:59:46. The project now revolves around the leakage by whistle-blower Manning of a so-called gun-camera-video from 12 July 2007, when Reuters Photographers and civilians where gunned down from an Apache helicopter in Baghdad. The publication of the material by Wikileaks in 2010 shocked the world, but the focus from the event soon changed thereafter. In 2013 the topic was raised again, but then as a narrative element in the Hollywood production “Fifth Estate“ (Touchstone Pictures / Disney, 2013). 00:59:46 is a moment in this movie where the boundary between a real and a fictional person (Julian Assange / Benedict Cumberbatch) seem dissolved.

Wikiland 2007-07-12–00:59:46 was released during NY Art Book Fair
at MoMA PS1 in September 2014

A Beach

Like pebbles on the sea-shore, a reminder that time can turn mountains into sand, our memories are polished, eroded and transformed in our minds until we can no longer be sure if they bear any semblance to what they once were. A Beach is an exploration of the erosion of history. A History, so dangerous, that its elimination has become physical.

A Beach consists of photographs from the Arab city of Jaffa south of Tel Aviv, along with a photograph of the same place taken by French photographer Félix Bonfils in 1880, and a childhood memory. The buildings that are visible in Bonfils photograph are now demolished to the ground to make way for a modern boardwalk as a result of the occupation and as part of the gentrification processes in Tel Aviv. The only sign of the missing houses are the pieces of mosaic from the tiles found on the beach in Jaffa.
A Beach was released during Offprint Paris in November 2013

Gottsunda

In the autumn of 2012, artist Erik Krikortz initiated a workshop in photography and writing for teenagers in Gottsunda, a suburb in Uppsala, Sweden. The workshop was held by photographers Klara Källström and Thobias Fäldt together with poet Viktor Johansson and physically realized in a book by 1:2:3. The idea of the workshop was to encourage the participants to share their own stories about Gottsunda, a place which media frequently portrays as a problem affected area. This book is a result of the told, written and visualized stories from the time the group spent together.

The participants of the workshop were: Blini Beqa, Olivia Gustafsson, Sergej Brändén, Hanna Rönntoft, Linnea Carlsson Uggla, Arjanit Beqaj, Johan Järvenson, Linnea Sitell and Kerim Ashkar.
