Hushållningssällskapet Jämtland's inagural residency at Medstugan, a former hunting villa model farm in the Jämtland mountains in Sweden. I spent a week at the farm including a stay in the mountain hunting cabin Södra jaktstugan situated on Middagsfjället. My research focus on the land and its history from the point that the Medstugan hunting villa is a grade listed building since 1999 with which follows the idea of preservation and historical value. The aim of my project is to put this into context with the Sámi use of the land up until the Swedish state incapacitated that in the 19th century.
On 30 July I organised an archeological inventory at Middagsfjället with Jan Persson (Njaarke Sámi village) and Ewa Ljungdahl (archeologist speciallised in Sámi remnants) funded by Länsstyrelsen Jämtland.

Unorganised Space Conversations is a walk in the direct vicinity of Index, probing sites where the nature contest the imposed structure of modernist city planning. The conversations of the walk will be looking at the city from the perspective of areas that evade city planning, pockets of untended nature in the urban environment. From a human perspective these spaces are unorganised, but the nature that inhabits them is indifferent to what we think of as ideal and successful.

'Death and Dying'
Video screening at Kunstraum Artenne in Vorlarlberg, Austria. Curated by David Lillington and including work by Bartosz Sikorski, Malin Ståhl, Petrina Ng, Owen Oppenheimer, Artavazd Peleshian, Ophélie Malassigné, Sanna Linell, Kate Davis and David Moore, Fabienne Audéoud, Philip Hoffman, Christina Stuhlberger, Audrey Reynolds, Elizabeth Price.
David Lillington says: "An unholy mixture of 14 short art-videos (videos by artists) and art-films by professional film-makers, using humour, theater, social realism, sometimes the surreal and sometimes sheer beauty to try and approach the themes of death, dying and mortality. All are serious, even when they make us laugh. They represent a range of styles used by contemporary artists to deal with a subject which affects everyone alive. Three of these videos were originally films, and two of those are by professional film-makers (Peleshian, from Armenia; Hoffman, from Canada.) The other 11 are ,art videos' – videos by artists who also make other kinds of work. Some are ,laugh-out-loud' funny, (Audéoud, France; Oppenheimer, UK) others poignant in their quiet humour (Malassigné, France). Some are literary (Ståhl, Linnel, both from Sweden), many highly theatrical (Ståhl, Oppenheimer, Audéoud) – but all are serious in their approach to the subject of death, dying and mortality. Some look at traditional genres such as the 'Totentanz' tradition in a contemporary way (Ståhl). Some are intensely personal (Stuhlberger, Germany), others surrrealistic (Davis and Moore, UK). Some are extremely beautiful (Peleshian, Hoffman.) The last and longest video is a contemporary masterpiece (Price, UK, winner of the Turner Prize) and a complex and intense study both of a real event and of the psychology of our relationship with death. All, in their different ways, are entertaining".

'Death and Dying'
Video screening at Danielle Arnaud in London. Curated by David Lillington and including work by Fabienne Audéoud, Kate Davis and David Moore, Philip Hoffman, Sanna Linell, Ophélie Malassigné, Petrina Ng, Owen Oppenheimer, Artavazd Peleshian, Audrey Reynolds, Bartosz Sikorski, Malin Ståhl, Christina Stuhlberger.
Despite the humour, the fiction and the fictionalising, realism is the underlying tone of this selection of short films and videos on death, which also represent a number of related genres and approaches. What lightness or fantasy there is, is a measure of the artists' respect for their theme. All the work is both highly engaging and highly engaged, and deals with the idea of death but also with the particular case.
