In 1968, he created another scandal, when the film
"Monument" was televised in most European countries.
For a couple of years, Ture Sjölander was celebrated in France, Italy, Switzerland, Great Britain and the USA.
In Sweden there was a lot of jealousy. The Museum of Modern Art and the National Gallery of Sweden, to name a few, bought his works, but the techniques he worked with were expensive and after a few years, he found himself without resources. Instead he started to work with celebrities such as Charlie Chaplin and Greta Garbo. They taught him that exile - mental and physical - is the only way to escape destruction for a creative genius. He moved to Australia.
Ture Sjolander's works include photos, films, books, articles, textiles, tv-programs, video installations, happenings, sculptures and paintings - all scattered around the Globe. Tracing will be a challenging task for future detective/biographer and web-archaeologist's.
But mostly, his work consists of a life of questioning and creation. This is what set him aside as one of the great artists of the 20th century.
