HARLEQUINA & HARLEQUIN was a family exhibition produced and exposed at The HALLWYL MUSEUM where the guest floors and Wilhelmina von Hallwyl ́s bedroom at the extraordinary Palace was transformed to the Venice festival.
The ambiance of happiness and transformation meet the silent wordless theatre form,
The masks and characters that can be found during the Venice carnival has its origin in stereotypes that are dated back in the Commedia dell ́arte during the 16th century. Many of the characters are still familiar, as the satirist Harlequin or the clown Pierrot. Those and many more characters where to be found in the exhibition.
The exhibition HARLEQUINA & HARLEQUIN was based on Jenny LEXANDERs Photographs and films from Venice and displayed combined with historical costumes, new created costumes, objects, lithographs, literature and artefacts from today’s interpretations. The guest floor at the Palace meet colour, form and fantasy in the silent theatre, the physical theatre
Commedia dell ́arte.

The Finnish Institute in Stockholm inaugurated the travel exhibition SISU.
Later during the autumn the exhibition was heading off to The Finnish Institute in Paris followed by the Gallery of Nordic Council of Ministers in Copenhagen.
To finally land at the Finnish Museum of Photography in Helsinki.
SISU is a Finnish term translated into English as strength of will, determination, perseverance, and acting rationally in the face of adversity. That is a truly way of being in Finland. Sisu is also the name of the exhibition with Lexander’s gentle portraits of Finnish and Swedish veterans, along with exposing landscapes from the footsteps of her grandfather.
Beautiful and powerful stories was exposed as quotations from Swedish and Finnish war veterans that was interviewed during the project.
Their struggle during the war has been of great historical significance for both Sweden and Finland. The photographer’s grandfather is among the veterans portrayed. Lexander was always fascinated by the silence that surrounded this topic in her family.
«In this project I want to visualize the inner strength and power within every one of us. Just two generations ago Finland was attacked by the Soviet Union, a super power, in the Winter War. The price was high, but they managed to keep the Russians at bay and maintain independence. Many of the veterans were young boys, most were only 18 years old.» / Jenny Lexander.
The SISU exhibition aims to spread knowledge about this important historical chapter to a younger generation as well as to increase understanding between the Nordic countries. The Swedish contribution in the Winter War was important. 9694 Swedish volunteers fought for Finland during the Winter War and the Continuation War. There are at least 1440 Finnish war veterans living in Sweden today. In Finland there are 67 500 veterans, 10 000 of them were made invalids by injuries sustained in the war.
«We’d been fighting for two months. We were dirty as hell and our clothes were in tatters. Then the Swedish troops showed up. We called them ’the gentlemen,’ they were handsome and dressed in white. The officers wore white furs.»
Aarne Körkkö, from Rovaniemi, a veteran portrayed in the exhibition SISU
Les Fleurs Avec Amour
The Swedish photographer Jenny Lexander presented her series «Flowers with Love»
at ANNE CLERGUE GALERIE in Arles, France.
A herbarium borrowed from a poem, and imbued with a particular delicatessen for the prints made on Japan Gampi paper.
«These flowers were picked on the Swedish island of Gotland in our vacation home. Every day, whatever the weather, a fresh flower was added to the bouquet, like a poem. In the fields, near the ocean, in the dunes, across the mountains, in the forests, a new flower embellished this gathering like a magic herbarium. A summer filled with joy, tears, passion, curiosity, like a return to the springs of childhood, pure and sensitive.
Each flower bears the name of a feeling associated with the day it was picked. Love, Dreams, Pretty, Airplane, Compassion, Curiosity, Understanding, Happiness, Passion, Dearest, Butterfly.»
Gampi is a handmade paper, produced from a variety of mulberry tree that is rare and impossible to cultivate, and which is peculiar to Japan. Gampi paper, based on noble and rare fibers, offers unparalleled fineness, translucency, and incomparable luster.
Jenny Lexander relates her quest to find this precious paper: «The paper was made by Mr. Seki, who lived in Kochi, Japan. He developed it for the West, which wanted a slightly thicker medium for publication. He produced the paper with his wife. About twenty years ago, the market collapsed, and when I went there to visit him in Kochi, the workshop was invaded by his grandchildren, for whom it was another school playground. He was having health problems, and the paper became very scarce. He would never divulge his manufacturing secrets, fearing that it would destroy his life, so the technique was never transmitted. At the end of his life, he changed his mind, but no one wanted to learn how to produce the paper. So he died taking the secret of Gampi Toriniko with him.»
