Monica Canilao and Kyle Ranson are in Sweden getting ready for their upcomong show, THE MORE WE WANDER at Gallery KRETS. Monica wrote a bit about what they are up to and sent over images of they're fun and work to share with us. I'd like to be frolicing through the woods gathering mushrooms with them, wouldn't you?
"We are in Brösarp, Sweden near the coast, doing a make shift residency at a place called Neon Gallery. Though I dont think the gallery is open any longer. The tourist information center is still running which is in the same building as our studio, across from the annex we are living in. The woods here are beautiful and everyone covets their little spots where chantrelles grow. We have been super lucky to already have found several spots of our own! We are basically at a truck stop out in the fields and woods of Sweden, but surrounded by a beautiful epic forest, crazy mushrooms and wildflowers. The tiny town is much like the village in The Wicker Man! At some point in the past, Sonic Youth also did a residency here and recorded a record.
We still have one week left and have been working our butts off between cooking super good meals and adventuring into the woods. Our show that we are making work for, 'The More We Wander', will be opening on the 3rd of September here at Krets in Malmö." -- Monica Canilao, August 24, 2011.
