before, this is the artists' community where we went for the Ace Camp in Gothenburg.
It was founded in 1987, on the site of the former Epidemic Hospital. It's home to over 100
artist studios and comprises 4000 square metres of studio space for sculptors, actors, writers,
textile artists, designers, dancers, musicians, jewellery and ceramic artists, painters,
performance artists, print makers, poets, film makers and more. For me, it was the place of
dreams :) So, a pictorial snippet of the outdoor spaces...
We also visited some of the studios (other than Camilla's of course), including Per Agelii
and Nils Ramhoj...

I wasn't going to include this photo but Camilla has just announced that they won the competition
so it can now be shown :)
|Nils' studio was set up with an exhibition of his self portraits spanning 50 years.|
|I loved Nils' kitchen!|
Also loved the onsite canteen with flowers at the door and candles at the buffet :)
It really was an amazing space. FYI - if you're hatching ideas of how to get here, the
Konstepidemin community pay their bills by renting out studio spaces like the one where
we had Ace Camp :)
You can find out more about Konstepidemin on their website and blog.
