“At Easter time last year, I travelled to Ethiopia to do some research work that was in some ways connected with a tradition of folklore painting from my home region of Dalarna, Sweden. Expectations are always creating images in our heads, but then reality – or what we refer to as reality – always provides us with so much more. I was thrilled to experience the Ethiopian Orthodox Easter celebration, the singing pilgrims and the rock churches of Lalibella. This experience, together with other influences and reflections during a number of years form the base of this exhibition.”
