Agrikultura was an exhibition of public artworks, installations, meals, performances, urban interventions, and events that tookplace outdoors in Hyllie, Malmo, in July/August 2017.
Our opening hours were Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays 11:00 – 18:00 from 1 July – 27 August.
Agrikultura was the third exhibition organized by the Kulturföreningen Triennal.
Some of the questions we aimed to address with the project include:
What is our present relationship to the land?
How can we augment and redefine our cultural and emotional connection to a nature that we have over-extended?
How can we re-engage with a nature we have pushed ever further from our lives?
Together, we re-imagined our cities: artists, farmers, and citizens will work together to develop new ideas and answers to food security. Our vision was to create a unique experience, that was at once beautiful, and that engaged our audiences in meaningful ways to think about practical roles we might play in imagining the future of our food systems, in expansive, sustainable, and delightful ways.
We commissioned artworks that imagine sustainable solutions to food in cities. We explored permacultural solutions – systems of agricultural and social design principles centered on simulating or utilizing patterns and features of local ecosystems. We explored solutions for a sustainable, attractive, livable city. Artworks acted, in a metaphorical sense, like the architectural follies of historic English Gardens, where memories, musings, and philosophical thoughts are embedded in the landscape.
Each weekend the curators conducted tours of the projects and artists engaged the public in workshops and performances.
Artists created installations, land art projects, performances, mobile kitchens, formal and informal gatherings that took place in Hyllie’s fields and in public spaces. Invited artists worked with local communities to build projects, and prepare meals.
