A L V is a piece for solo cello inspired by stories from the deserted village of Dröstorp on Öland's Great Alvar. In this film cellist Per Nyström interprets the piece in a recording from Kulturhuset Zokker, Mörbylånga, Öland in mid September 2021.


The word alv, which probably lies behind the notion alvar, is the infertile soil under the topsoil, a symbol of the harsh conditions that prevailed for the inhabitants of Dröstorp.

Film: Oddbjörn Andersson

Sound: Magnus Bergman

Post production: Hans Gurstad-Nilsson


From the beginning, I had the intention to work with the silence in the deserted village. But during the process, the stories about the cattle thief Bohman came to the fore. The tale of him dancing the cattle to death to get meat is macabre, but at the same time grad an archaic, a stark image of the life struggle.

G A N, Ilja

Erik Wickström spelar pianostycket Ilja ur G A N. Trots sitt radikala bildspråk var G A N i grund och botten en romantiker. I sin konst lyckades han förena sin personliga, ofta svärmiskt romantiska motivvärld med ett modernistiskt bildspråk. Ilja var smeknamnet på GANs första och kanske också största kärlek, Karl Edvard Holmström. Ilja dog i lunginflammation endast 22 år gammal.  I filmen visas utsnitt ur målningarna Elektrikern (1913), Gränden (1919) och Blå hamn (odaterad). Kalmar Slott 26 februari 2021.
