Walking Conversation in the Gammlia Forest. Eight Degrees / Contemporary Art on the Forest

Time Sunday 9 June, 2024 at 14:00 - 15:00
Place Bildmuseet

Walking conversation in the Gammlia forest with Ann Dolling, reaseacher at the Swedish University of Agricultural Science, and the museum curator Anca Rujoiu.

The conversation starts in the exhibition Eight Degrees / Contemporary Art on the Forest.

The exhibition brings together contemporary art exploring our complex relationship with the forest, ranging from ideas of an inviolable intrinsic value to the conception of something to be utilised, such as an economic asset or a space for recreation. What is a forest? And what pressing questions about it are relevant here and now?

Through photography, film, sculpture, drawing, textiles, sound, and installations, the artists invite us to reflect on the forest, observed and depicted from various perspectives and with diverse experiences. Their works provoke questions about tradition and future, forestry practices, land conflicts, biological diversity, and the forest as a sacred space.

The exhibition title Eight degrees references Jörgen Stenberg’s eponymous poem.
