Field Walks

Visitors are invited to field walks, i.e. “walk and talk” around the buckwheat field.
The conversation expands on the understanding of the rural-urban as connected public spaces; do we also need a next generation of guerrilla gardening in the rural area?
Can we look at public space in a new way?
Further Field Walks will conduct the production of buckwheat noodles learning from the Japanese culture around “Soba” (buckwheat / buckwheat noodles).

The activities are based on interventions and processes taking place since 2007 under the umbrella of Odlingen/The Cultivation. It 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.
