Seven Hours of Daylight: Soft Turns find solace in Sweden

by R.M. Vaughan

Canadian Art, Fall 2011, pp. 150-154

Sarah Jane Gorlitz and Wojciech Olejnik, together known as the collective Soft Turns, have been making animation-based installations since 2006, after meeting through art-school connections...Following Gorlitz and Olejnik around Malmö, from the art school to the studio to their standard-issue shoebox apartment, I learn that Malmö, grumpy and dingy as it is, might be the perfect place to make compact, portable and very quiet art. The other side of grumpy is pensive, and Soft Turns' work is nothing if not thoughtful and monkishly still.
