Kompost

Collaboration with artist Victoria Brännström.

2013- ongoing

 
 

Kompost is a collaborative project that aims to - practically and theoretically – approach gardening and city farming, within the art context. The project will frame a long-term practice-based research into a variety of political and social areas connected to gardening that we find equally interesting as concerning. A small allotment situated nearby our studio collective serves as our physical point of departure as well as the common place where research can be transformed into experience. We plan a number of public interventions, such as nature walks, lectures and performances by invited autodidacts in the filed and by our selves. We also aim to make study trips to connect with initiatives around Sweden and worldwide. By this extension of our common practice, we wish not only to share experiences and emphasize DIY-initiatives but also to address the subject of gardening as one of political contestation.

Later on Kompost will share practical experiences and interventions on a blog.
