Sahara Widoff (born 1979) is a Swedish and Stockholm based artist and curator. At her
exhibition in Taverna Brillo Sahara is exploring the use of light as a changing materia, the
metamorphosis and the connection to shapeshifting in folklore. With the use of the light she
changes “dead” objects into something of a glowing mystery.
In her artistry she is also driven by bringing materials together into a form, distilling and
creating a context, to be working to something that feels cohesive. The process is starting
with a sense of fragmentation of thought and feeling and in her work, the creating, brings
everything back together somehow. For Sahara everything starts with the basic materials for
the piece that is being deeply reflective and inspiring.
Sahara Widoff has evolved into being an experienced curator, one of her projects in recent
years is a large Transdisciplinary exhibition for the Nobel museum. She is experienced in the
field of light and sound installations and has a background with design projects for Acne
Studios as conceptual director.
Her artistry is also involving a sculptural project involving plaster, crystals and video.
In short she describes herself as a creative and very curious nerd.
She is also an avid collector of art.
At Taverna Brillo Sahara is presenting an exhibition called
The Last Complete Full Moon Collection
At the heart of my practice is the playful exploration of the properties and potential of materials, and in parallel, the use of light as a changing materia.
Tracing the essence of materials through their combination with others
is something that has always interested me.
The notion of metamorphosis, to physically transform oneself, has always been present in myths and folklore. This process is also know as shapeshifting in popular culture and children’s books. For this exhibition I wanted to experiment with a metamorphic approach applied to “dead” objects, objects that needs light to shift shape and expression. Some works are scanned images of fractions of a prism or pictures of the inside of crystals. Others are just left with 2 colors and an abstraction of the absence of light. As for the sculptures, these otherwise mundane objects become shapeshifters themselves. At night, they transform into something of a glowing mystery.
Seen together, these works are a collection of fragments from the dreamworld, which were perhaps newer real but neither were they fully unreal.

Sven X-et Erixson ANIARA på Bar Brillo

Sven X-ets familj visar nu de originalmålningar och skisser som ligger till grund för dekor och kostymer till Sci-fi operan Aniara, som framfördes 1959 på Kungliga Operan. Aniara, med undertiteln En revy om människan i tid och rum, bygger på Harry Martinssons versepos med samma namn som publicerades 1956. Det här är en unik svit med en av Sveriges största konstnärer inom modernt måleri som tolkar ett av svensk litteraturs mest betydande verk, en verklig tidsskildring. Sven X-et Erixson (1899-1970) var en betydande konstnär inom modernt svenskt måleri. Hans måleri, i ofta lysande färger, kännetecknas av spontana och temperamentsfulla arbeten. Sven X:et Erixson var en av grundarna av gruppen Färg och Form, där bland annat Bror Hjorth, Vera Nilsson och Albin Amelin fanns med. Stort tack till Roland Hjort och Irma Ericson som gjort denna utställning möjlig.
