Gas light - the paintings

Stage Dressing / Malmö Stadsteater / 2021
In "Gas light" (Gasljus), the 2022 production at Malmö Stadsteater the drama is acted out in the apartment of a striving young female painter. A number of Selma Sjöstedt's paintings are displayed as part of the set dressing. Read Selma's catalogue statement about her art and participation in the play.
Selma: "I'm an artist, just like Johanna in the play, and my contribution to Gas light, Malmö is lending my pictures to her and along with them, a story to give perspective to her character on stage."
