TJOHOOOO!!!
Now it’s official, this winter I will build one of the15 suites at this season’s 29th ICEHOTEL.

Contributions came from all over the world; Sweden, USA, India, Canada, Mexico and New Zealand among others. A list of all the artists involved in the creation of ICEHOTEL #29 is presented here: https://www.icehotel.com/list-of-art-artists-icehotel-29/

Get a night’s sleep in a candy store full of sweets, sleep in a suite with a swiming woman that loves ice and slumber into an aquarium with a huge cat as a spectator. This is three of the design proposals awaiting visitors on December 14th, when ICEHOTEL opens the doors of the seasonal opening of the hotel.

Every year the hotel is visited by about 50,000 guests from all over the world, about 50 wedding couples get married among ice and snow and many guests has eaten the famous Ice Menu in the ICEHOTEL Restaurant, which serves a five course menu on plates made of ice, directly from the Torne River.

Building the hotel for each season requires a huge effort, starting with 5,000 tonnes of ice taken from Torne River in March. The ice is then stored until October each year when the construction of ICEHOTEL starts.

The 14th of December opens the season’s ICEHOTEL.

Making a book about KALLA BAD with Bonnier Fakta

Now our book KALLA BAD is available to reserve at Adlibris.
To make a book. Imagine two new friends were in the car heading home from an early morning winter swim in October 2017. The experience was magic and I told Linda Ahlgren that this is too good to just stay between us, we should make a book. And she said yes.

Then our journey began with the book KALLA BAD together with Bonnier Fakta. A lifelong friendship took place. It has always been a dream to make a book, now it is in full production and it will be released in November 6th in Sweden and perhaps also abroad.

Together we outlined the essays and wrote the story throughout the documentary travel through Sweden. I am the photographer of the book and I have also made alot of art to be an nice part of the book.

The cover was taken in Stockholm an early morning before a meeting with Bonnier Fakta. I used a drone and we needed to take many photos to get the perfect shot. We got VERY cold but it was definitely worth it. We work together under the name Icewomen with different projects, the book was one of them.
