På Landet

Sweden. 2016

Material: Performance. 8 participants, 20 minutes duration. 16 color pens, paper.

Part of the trilogy ‘Found in translation’

8 participants living in the countryside (På landet, in Swedish) with various mother tongues enter a room in the same order that they arrived to Sweden. They choose 2 pens and a position in the room. Then, for 20 minutes they write in a stream-of-consciousness to create a new landscape with their own language.
