Jan Svenungsson

Växjö Telephone Directory cover

In 1991-1992 contemporary artists were invited to design the covers for all telephone books in Sweden. This collage uses as source material portraits (photographed by Cristopher Dracke) of the three brothers Svenungsson; Jan, Håkan, Olof: "three brothers make one". The artist provided the eyes. In 1992, the composite photograph provided the centerpiece of an installation at Liljevalchs Konsthall, Stockholm. It was shown again in 2021 – at Liljevalchs Konsthall. This time it was accompanied by a short text by JS, (English translation).
