Conversation with Jenny Nordmark (SWE)
At the end of 2018, Nordmark will start work on a new artistic project taking place in Haparanda, Övertorneå and Kalix. The work is a part of the art museum’s regional activities and will function as an extension of the Transitions exhibition. Taking Nordmark’s work as a starting point, the conversation will be directed towards the multiple ways that landscapes in flux can be considered, valued, and how they affect a society. It is possible to experience these transition periods as times of loss, as instigating an enclosed site vacuum, or as the starting point for endless opportunities. Can art and architecture influence the significance of these sites?
The conversation will be led in Swedish by Maria Ragnestam, Artistic Director and Curator of Transitions, Konstmuseet i Norr.
