Mikael Goralski

Mikael Goralski

Born, 1962 in Solna, Sweden

Mikael was a studio neighbor when I was on a residency at IASPIS in Stockholm. A person who is a mind-bending spirit incarnate. Mikael's work at the time consisted of a room filled with mundane and extremely unique objects speaking in a grandiose and grotesque terms about the killing of Olof Palme and his supposed murderer. Paranormal, psychic, psychosis features heavily in Goralski's work. It all made some of the staff very jazzed and some very uncomfortable particularly when it spread into the common hallway. Pushing buttons... Mikael also curates incredible shows and introduced me to Kummelholmen, a fantastic house for the arts outside of Stockholm.
