I have been a little obsessed with Monkey business lately. The Monkey for me serves as a metaphor for what we were, what we are, and what we will one day return to. The Sleeping Monkey is a figure that appears in many of my ideas, and I am sure it will surface sometime in the near future.

Formargruppen is an artists cooperation with a shop and a gallery in downtown Malmö, Sweden. The 20 members are all professional craft artists working in different materials. All the artists are local, and most of them can be visited in their studios as well as in the shop. The gallery shows a new exhibition every month, where the audience can experience new, often experimental, conceptual crossover expressions within the contemporary crafts scene.
