Exhibition 1 June–30 September 2013
My treasure chest was the summer exhibition at Skokloster Castle in 2013. Seven people from the world of media, art and design had a free choice of their favourite artefacts from the castle’s collections, one of the world’s foremost baroque castles with an extravagance that is rarely seen.
Those taking part were Eva Funck, actor and programme host, Knut Knutson, antiques expert, Doreen Månsson programme host and TV producer, Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin, photographer and artist, Sebastian Schildt, silversmith, Lars Wallin, couture designer and Lasse Åberg, artist.
Our select seven searched their way through furniture, art, tools and weapons from different centuries to find their own personal treasures. During the cold winter and spring months, they explored the unheated castle’s halls, bed chambers, drawing rooms and cupboards to find things that caught their interest and aroused their curiosity. Their personal choices created the summer exhibition.
