Bengt moved into a new workshop in Paris.
A retrospective was held at the Sundsvall Museum in Sweden. On that occasion, Bengt painted a monumental 700 square meters canvas: “Le Géant sur la Montagne” (The Giant on the Mountain), which remained on the mountain slope facing the town all summer long. He made a suite of six silkscreen prints on the same theme.
Bengt inaugurated the “Y”, a monumental sculpture near Midlanda airport in Sweden. He completed “Temps Zéro” (Zero Time), a watch made for Swatch. One of his works, “l’Hiver” (Winter), made the cover of the first 1996 issue of Telerama, a French weekly magazine.
In association with Sydkraft Sweden, he painted a fresco for the municipality of Örebro on a 17 meters high tank with a surface area of 3,000 m² located at the crossroads of major Swedish motorways .
In Ånge, Lindström created a 6.5 meter high “Tången” sculpture, made of painted concrete, which was inaugurated in the presence of the King and Queen of Sweden.
Bengt began working on ceramics in Albisolla, Italy. In this period, he also completed a new 30 meter high fresco for the town of Örebro. Bengt completed a 4 x 10 meter mural in the lobby of the University of Eskilstuna, Sweden, two monumental frescoes on the Akkats dam and a mural on the power station facing Jokkmokk in Swedish Sápmi (Lapland).
The inauguration of the Midlanda Contemporary Arts Center in Sweden took place. This Center maintained the collection of the Bengt and Michèle Lindström Foundation, featuring the entire engravings collection (approximately 800 works) as well as a selection of paintings and sculptures. The collection was later donated and transferred to the Länsmuseet i Västernorrland in Härnösand, Sweden, where a special room was prepared to host “Les Grands Dieux Ase”.
