Trailerpark Festival doesn’t just have an impressive music line-up. They’ve brought together the artistic cream of the crop to transform the Trailerpark Festival venue into a creative vision.
The brilliant art group Bobblegun are getting involved this year, taking a little time off from their usual mix of online art gallery running and pop-up exhibitions.
ArtRebels caught up with Stefan from the collective to speak more about what they have in store for the Trailerpark Festival audience, beatboxing skills, finding happiness in loneliness and starting up a new religion.
What’s your typical day like?
The three of us have different kinds of days but all of them include meals. We are three individualists combining our work.
Where would your dream trailer parking spot be?
Iceland outback in summertime. The perfect place to experience loneliness in its happiest form.
What can we expect from you at this year’s Trailerpark Festival?
Violence and colors, big wooden letters and refreshing cool artwork. We’re creating a dark atmosphere by the main stage.
Your office is burning down – what do you save first?
Food and art!
What’s Bobblegun’s earliest memory?
Bobblegun first came up as an idea late one night at a bar. My second earliest memory is a lot of nights at Christian’s place, where the three of us talked a bit more about it. We really focussed on not just being an online gallery. It’s important to experience art in real life, but at the same time, an online gallery gives the possibility to share art with more people. We wanted to combine these two things and eventually we drew a gun.
In your wildest dreams, where is Bobblegun going to be in 5 years?
Our wildest dream is, of course, to have founded a religion and have loads of Bobblegunists following our artists.
Hopefully we’ll be throwing pop-up exhibitions in the jungle, and successfully have created a platform where our talented artists get the recognition they deserve.
You’re holding a dinner party and can invite 5 people – who’s coming (dead or alive)?
Vybz Kartel, Mozart and Angus Young – I’d make them get drunk and write a song!
Of course John McClane, from DIEHARD, would be invited, despite being a fictional character. And Michael Kvium would have to be there to capture it all in a painting.
If you could have a secret super hero power, what would it be?
Superman. I’d fly the Bobblegun team all around the world.
Do you have any secret talents up your sleeve?
Beatboxin’ and PS3.
If you weren’t doing what you’re doing now, what would you be up to?
Hopefully traveling, maybe by boat. Or living on the east coast of Nicaragua. Thomas would be a hardcore hiphop producer, no doubt.
