Odlingen / The Cultivation

Researcher/artist: Gunnel Pettersson

OPENING: September 4th, 1-4 pm

Open by appointment during Sundays, September 11th-25th, 1-4 pm

To expand the understanding of the rural-urban as connected public spaces; do we need a next generation of guerrilla gardening also in the rural area? Who owns the rural landscape? The activities in the exhibition space are based on interventions and processes taking place since 2007 under the umbrella of Odlingen/The Cultivation. Odlingen/The Cultivation is an interdisciplinary project using buckwheat as a source of inspiration and initiating cultivation of buckwheat in the south-eastern part of Sweden. Art is a space for experiments and reflections – art can provide preconditions for conversations and start interactions on subjects. In this case hopefully on aspects of cultivation as concrete realities as well as abstractions of our existence.

Gunnel Pettersson is an artist and senior lecturer at the School of arts and Communication (K3) at Malmö University. gunnel.pettersson@odlingen.org, www.odlingen.org
