”Healing Powers” (aka PUNK NATURE)

HYBRID by BKN GOES 

SUPERMARKET ART FAIR

In the northern archipelago of Stockholm one finds the island Björkö, where artists and the local community initiated BKN studio spaces in 2020. Originally set out as a project to convert the former school into studios, it soon came to include a residence program, artist presentations, art education, screenings and exhibitions.

HYBRID is a transformative dynamic space for art engaging with aspects of life and nature through asymmetry entanglement beyond violence not-knowing desire nature responsibility deep listening and close seeing.
From its core on Björkö HYBRID extends sites indoors and outdoors on or off the island. A continuation of "Healing Powers" takes place late summer as a process based exploration ”Magnitude” with five artists on a grant made possible with collaboration from Swedish Arts Grants Committee and Region Stockholm.

At Supermarket HYBRID presents ”Healing Powers” (aka PUNK NATURE) drawing from slow resistance and counter publics towards healing powers. The works are by artists from Ireland Guatemala Usa Norway Russia The Netherlands Belgium and Sweden and are represented with: video/performance/photography/installation/sculpture/graphic art/painting.

We have initiated a collaboration with Skövde Art Museum and Norrtälje Konsthall around an exhibition for one of our resident artists.  For 2022 we are also working on the exhibitions ”Out of Rock” and ”The Sea That Surrounds Us” in addition to catering to the local studio walk/open studios.  For late summer/fall we are collaborating with The Swedish Arts Grants Committee for the special residency program "Magnitude". 

HYBRID and BKN are concepts by the artist run non profit organization Björkö Konstnod
