Queer Art/ I Also Just Want To Make Something Nice by Jony Ely Xiuming Aagaard Gao!

Welcome to the next Queer Art vernissage at StaDemonia Tattoo Stockholm, 6/3 at 18-21 hs! You can see this expo until we can organize the next expo (when we can be more than 6 people in the studio without risk)!
Welcome to step into the brain of someone that is tired and who also just wants to make something nice. The brain of a romantic relationship anarchist, uncomfortable art student, almost burnt out activist, someone who is emotionally invested in many things.

For everyone I love, this is for you, this is for us. When everything we want is to also just make something nice.
Jon Ely Xiuming Aagaard Gao

Accessibility: We have four steps to the studio with ramp available, only a small toilet.

Fler inför lansering av fanzinet drömsyskon. Titeln i rosa och drömmig flytande text.

Queer Art/ Drömsyskon Fanzine at StaDemonia Tattoo Stockholm!

Welcome to enjoy the expo and zine Drömsyskon (Dream siblings) by Rasmus Eo Clarke and Jon Ely Xiuming! Vernissage 10/1 at 18-21 hs at StaDemonia Tattoo Stockholm! Until 2/3!
I will whisper to you before you fall asleep:
do not be afraid
if you need to fall apart a little
I’m here and
when the morning comes we will feel the sun behind our eyelids
we breathe every other breath and
hold tight to the warmth we have created
they will not get our hearts so easily
do you feel the fire under our skin
we will never forget what love is
we are the ones who create it

I want to be able to translate the whole world for us
give all languages ​​a new heart
write all poems as necessary punches in the chest
you me and our army of dream siblings
Drömsyskon is a Swedish/English zine and collaborative project between Rasmus Eo Clarke, Jon Ely Xiuming and the Swedish trans community. The queer- and trans community has this really beautiful way of being each others support. And maybe not everyone has access to this. So we wanted to create drömsyskon as a community space to uplift each other. To share our stories. To create family. To direct our narrative! Stories about trans people by trans people.

Svart vitt foto bakgård med figur som håller upp en skylt framför sig: I am therefore I am

Queer Art/ I am, therefore I am by Becko Ellnemar at StaDemonia Tattoo Stockholm!

Welcome to the vernissage of “I am, therefore I am” by Becko Ellnemar, at StaDemonia Tattoo Stockholm, 8/11 at 18-21 hs!

Becko Ellnemar – is a Stockholm-based illustrator, printmaker and graphic designer mainly producing work under the name By Dinosaurs . As a cultural producer Becko Ellnemar also has several ongoing collaborations; producing merchandise for Riot Grrrl Sessions, co-editor for the fanzine/magazine Gin & Tennis and are one of the feminist gallery Galleri Majkens important board members.
For the first time showing her original work with the exhibition “I am, therefore I am”

“My thoughts, values and fight for equal rights are illustrated through pre-historic creatures. Although drawing dinosaurs might seem childish, I embrace the thought of acting like a child, to have a non-fixed mindset and freely speaking my mind as a result of not fully conforming to the patriarchy. When I draw them, I perceive dinosaurs as strong creatures and individuals who are non-binary, and more relatable through their words and actions, nor by gender and/or sexuality.
I work mainly with ink on paper, then transferring them to digitally coloured posters or handprinted creations mostly made with a variety of combined colours and methods of screentprinting.”

This exclusive show at StaDemonia Tattoo is the first time that Becko shows her original drawings to the public.
“It makes me feel exposed because to me an original exposes every flaw and every move made by my hand. But even though my originals have their flaws in comparison with the posts published online, I do love them even more. They are the result of my ideas, my feelings and my hand. And with flaws comes character which reveals the free mind, heart and soul of a hard working artist.
I guess that is what makes me feel exposed. Exposed and vulnerable.”

The title “I am, therefore I am” is a deliberate misquotation of Descartes* suggesting you are because you do something. A misquotation I feel can relate to misogynistic ideas and patriarchy. The feeling, as a queer and a woman, of being valued less as a person if not considered eligable or attractive to a man is a very dominant feeling.
But what if we turn it around?
I draw because I am. I think, because I am. I live because I am. And I am, therefore I am. We exist, simply because we are existing and the things we make of our life is because we are. We are not our creations. Our creations are us.
And we are, simply because we are.
And we are here.
To smash the patriarchy.

*“I think; therefore I am” was the end of the search Descartes conducted for a statement that could not be doubted. He found​ that ​he could not doubt​ that ​he​ himself existed, as ​he​ was the one doing the ​doubting​ in the first place.

Tillgänglighet: Vi har fyra trappsteg till lokalen med ramp tillgänglig, endast en liten toalett.

Självporträtt av queer konstnär Yaron Maim med virkat färgglatt skägg och rosa peruk.

Queer Art/ ENBYX -TOTAL WAIST by Yaron Maïm at StaDemonia Tattoo Stockholm!

Welcome to the vernissage of the expo ENBYX -TOTAL WASTE by Yaron Maïm! Enjoy the art and meet the artist! 27/9 at 18-21 at StaDemonia Tattoo Stockholm.

ENBYX – TOTAL WASTE (Berlin, 2019) is an augmented reality artist book by Yaron Maïm that presents DIY fashion items and a poetic text about sewing as a practice of resistance. The self-published work is enhanced by 7 short videos that the user can view with a smartphone. TOTAL WASTE playfully addresses the paradox of being a queer artist in a capitalist society. It asks if art can exist autonomously from the market by not reproducing or being enmeshed in the very structures it critiques. In the exhibition in StaDemonia Tattoo Stockholm, NOTHING TO SEE, a printed poster about on-/offline self-defence tactics, will accompany the AR publication. The front image is an appropriation of a page from QVINNA, a 1965 Swedish erotic magazine, found at a flea market in Stockholm in 2018.

Yaron Maïm is an artist interested in transformation processes. Their practice develops new perspectives on the body with a strong sense of image-making and personal narrative. As a Berlin-based visual artist, they creates works that go beyond the binary of things (analog/digital, male/female, process/result).

Queer konst av Kolbeinn Karlsson, två nakna män ligger sked, vilar. Från utställningen Badhusdagbok.

QUEER ART/ Badhusdagbok by Kolbeinn Karlsson

Welcome to enjoy art by Kolbeinn Karlsson. This expo can be seen at StaDemonia Tattoo Stockholm until 19/7! 

Kolbeinn Karlsson’s work Badhusdagbok has soon been hanging for two years at the green line at the Fridhemsplan subway station. The drawings are utopian images of male coded bodies at various stages of rest, uninterested in the viewer. Closed in themselves, yet together in a collective fantasy of sensualism and community. The drawings are made according to memory images and diary entries made in bath houses and training facilities.
Kolbeinn Karlsson is educated at the comic school in Malmö, and lives and works in Uppsala. He works in the studio association Konstgjord, and draws a new little person on a paper every day. The exhibition is both new drawings, and original from the bathhouse diary.

Oljemålning av Sandra Österberg. En person med bara bröst och mage halvligger på en bänk i grönska. Den vita huden lyser och ett par tatueringar bryter av det vita. Övre delen av ansiktet täcks av blad och hen ser arg ut.

QUEER ART/ Sandra Österberg at StaDemonia Tattoo Stockholm! Vernissage 7/12 18-21 hs!

Meet Sandra Österberg and see her art! Vernissage 7/12 at StaDemonia Tattoo Stockholm at 18-21 hs.
A selection of art from two exhibitions exposed during 2018, BEAUTIFUL SURFACE and BAD IMITATOR.
Sandra Österbergs works fluctuates between large and small perspectives where they end up in the borderland between abstraction and figuration. The visual narratives explore and problematize the themes about corporeality and not too seldom, it includes the female body or a queer/-norm-breaking body/bodies. In the development of the artworks, confidential photos and photos from the mass media, pop culture and the internet are the starting point. Many of the paintings can be perceived as some kind of portraits, but they are not principally portraits based on the classical aspect. They manifests expressions of sexuality, intimacy, mystery, gender, obscurity, and representation where social conventions are questioned and highlighted.

Kollage av omslaget till I slutet av regnbågen och Bitte Anderson som ler enormt med knallröda läppar.

QUEER ART/ Bitte Andersson at StaDemonia Tattoo Stockholm! At the end of the rainbow

Welcome to the reading from and by Bitte Andersson’s current series novel At the end of the rainbow! In addition, Bitte signs books, exhibition and mingel!

“When 76-year-old Marja’s apartment has to be redirected, she moves to the HBTQ senior housing Plejaderna. The overwhelming Millan welcomes with sherry and soon invites Marja to make friends somewhat against Marjas will.”

At the end of the rainbow is as much a romantic comedy as a series novel about sorrow, love, good neighbors, and daring to return to life after a depression. It is a specific depiction of queer closet life and the importance of finding our context. At the end of the rainbow is fiction, but also contains glimpses of HBTQ history inspired by interviews with elder HBTQ people.

Bitte Andersson is a cartoonist, film director and former bookstore owner. At the end of the rainbow is her debut novel. She has previously directed the lesbian action comedy musical Dyke Hard and started the feminist bookstore Hallongrottan in Hornstull.
