Rejmyre Art LAB is an artist-run organization focused on place-based making. It seeks to craft an intimate environment where young artists can learn from each other and their engagement with a particular site. Past workshop participants explored the physical, conceptual and metaphorical dimensions of different themes.
The workshop is open to practitioners with a background in both visual art and crafts in order to create a meeting place for these two fields. Activities include a combination of individual and collaborative, practice-based exercises, work presentations, peer critique and communal living/cooking.
Since its inception in 2009, Rejmyre Art LAB’s workshops, residencies, seminars and exhibitions have engaged Rejmyre, a small glass factory town, and the nearby village of Kalbo, both located amidst the forest and lakes two hours southwest of Stockholm.
