Open Studio – The creative process in focus
Färgfabriken’s Open Studio helps to give exposure to creative thinking at a time when it’s still in flux, by inviting various fascinating creators to take over a project space for a short period of time.
As a centre for the arts, we have an interminable interest in the creative process – what does it offer us? How does it come about? How do we capture it? How do we shape it? What should we reject? We want these cursory processes to encounter an audience – their audience.
In the autumn of 2017, we began exploring different ways of giving exposure to creative thinking and creative processes before they adopt their final form, while also bringing creators and audiences closer together. In collaboration with the art and design group Very Very Gold, Färgfabriken’s first Open Studio was launched. Our visitors could familiarise themselves with Very Very Gold’s arsenal of ideas, which were then shaped and reshaped, located, and dislocated in order to gradually shift into new and evolving ideas.
