How do you capture an image in music, light and paper? The artist Gunnel Wåhlstrand works with a black ink and water technique that has inspired composer Britta Byström to create the piece Ink-wash on Paper, where each movement has an association with one of the artist’s images. The work had its premiere at the Baltic Sea Festival in 2021. Gunnel Wåhlstrand is one of Sweden’s most successful artists, and in 2018 she was awarded the Sten A Olsson Culture Scholarship.

Malin Broman, First Concertmaster of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, has also made a video together with Britta Byström and director Andy Staples. The video work is entitled A Room of One’s Own and is based on Virginia Woolf’s essay of the same name. It is an important early feminist work, and Malin Broman plays all the instruments herself. The video went viral and had an enormous impact when it was released, and it also features on this evening’s programme.

During the evening, the artists also talk about their work and the interaction between the different art forms.
