Artipelag – art in the Stockholm archipelago

AINSA IV. Art work by Jaume Plensa.

I took a day off  from work a while back and brought my camera out to Artipelag, an art venue located on Värmdö in the Stockholm archipelago, only 20 minutes from the busy city centre. Artipelag was founded by Björn Jakobson, the creator of the brand BabyBjörn. It has a large art gallery and concert hall, but since I visited on a Monday the venues were not open. Still, there are plenty of things to do and see.

For example, there is a permanent outdoor exhibition called Sculpture in Nature, which includes several art works placed outside along the walking paths in the surrounding meadows and forests. Here are some of my photos from this exhibition.

How to get to Artipelag

Artipelag is a 25 minute drive by car away from Slussen in central Stockholm. Take road 222 towards Gustavsberg and follow the signs. You can also take one of several buses, see here for directions. The most scenic route would however be by boat, on a 19th-century ship from Nybrokajen in Stockholm.
