HAPPY! Swedish Arts Council Literature Funding to book 100 MIGRATORY


I am so happy the book 100 MIGRATORY received Literature funding through the Swedish Arts Council. So now the publishers of my book, DAT , are about to pack and send 287 books to the main libraries around the country.

The book has now sold out and nothing left in stock: I have mixed feelings about that – kind of happysad. If you want a book try Röhsska Museum in Gothenburg (as in image), Museum of Västerbotten Umeå, Ájtte Jokkmokk, Trolltrumman Tärnaby, Gällivare Museum etc

From the Art Council’s webpage:
The Swedish Arts Council provide funding for publishers in Sweden to publish certain newly-produced works of value both in artistic terms and also in respect of cultural policy. The Council also ensures that, through the municipal libraries around the country, the general public can borrow the literature that has received public funding.

Book review

My first review of the book 100 MIGRATORY was published in the newspaper NSD 16th of May 2014. I’m happy as it was great feedback all through. The author Jan Bergsten started and finished the article by writing:

“There are art projects and then there are art projects with that something extra…”

“… It is a beautiful book with Monica Edmondson´s beautiful glass vessels and with beautiful images from near and far, from the demonstrations (against mining – my comment) in Kallak Jokkmokk to the desert of Saudi Arabia…”

On Friday the 31st of January I had the pleasure to talk the the Swedish Crownprincess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel. I explained the thoughts behind the glass, the vessel and my art work 100 MIGRATORY at the same time media from Sweden and all over the world were there to get some pics of the Royals. The plane from Stockholm was delayed and in the meantime I had to take some photos myself of the media waiting. All other photos by Gunilla Nordlund, Sveriges Radio. Thank you Gunilla!

And if you wonder: Victoria has an injury from the end of last year skiing in the Alps.
