The desire to start up a creative lab had been residing within us for some time. This summer, the idea was realized through the creation of the Stutterheim Clinic. A place for us to explore our darkest thoughts and act upon our creative, and occasionally questionable, impulses.
”I’m not an artist, and I will never see myself as one. However, I am a human being with a need to express my inner feelings. That’s how I ended up spending most of my summer in an abandoned factory on the Swedish island of Öland, surrounded by 200 white raincoats and some black paint.” Our founder and creative director Alexander Stutterheim on the Stutterheim Clinic project.
The 200 experimental white raincoats arrived at the Stutterheim Clinic to be unboxed and taken care of. ”Dressed in black, I started the experiment by throwing black paint on the pure white raincoats, with my mind full of doubt. What am I doing here? How will this experiment end? Life is an unlimited quest and anxiety is the mother of creation.”
Countless throws of color, at least one nervous breakdown and a shift in seasons later we are ready (and somewhat proud) to open the doors to the Stutterheim Clinic for the first time, and show you what we’ve been doing.
