Feed the soil

The importance of soil. In David Montgomerys book ”Dirt- The erosion of civilisation” he writes about this important layer of top-soil as ”the skin of the earth”
On site there will now be two types of feeding the soil. One through three ”Worm towers” that will take care of the waste from AgriKulturas food events. And the other is a built compost pile built up in different layers of brown(carbon ) and green(nitrogen) and black (high nitrogen)material.

Cyanotype Workshops at Agrikultura

Farah ran a cyanotype workshop on opening weekend and it was a wonderful success. Each participant made unique and beautiful pieces they took home with them. Learning each step of the process by hand students will be able to do this process on their own again to continue making one-of-a-kind cyanotypes.

Participants got very creative with their selections of items to print and some even brought items from home we experimented with. Watching the image come up in the rinse going through each shade of blue right before our eyes feels like magic every time.
Farah will be teaching a second workshop when she returns for Stage Two of her project Agriphoto-Culturagraph so you can participate in this second one if you missed the first. Held from 13:00-17:00 on Saturday August 5th, please join for an educational and fun day of learning hands on how this photographic printing process dating back to 1842 works using the sun and water. All supplies and materials included, 150 KR cash to participate.
All welcome!

Excerpts from Stage One of Agriphoto-Culturagraph

Farah has set up a dark room in the shipping container on site where she has begun creating pieces documenting all the edible plants growing on site at Agrikultura, both from what she has found wild and from what she’s found growing in other artists’ installations. Here you can see the wild stinging nettle growing high on the hill, wild strawberries growing throughout the entire grounds on site, saint john’s wort growing on the hill and scattered around site, as well as wild rose blooming in the bushes around site.

Follow her Instagram @farah_jacqua to see a closer look at pieces she’s made during Stage One and visit her on site during Stage Two in order to watch her process step by step and see the plants she’s printing in their later growth in new prints. If you participate in her workshop on site Saturday August 5th 13:00-17:00you will get to make your own one-of-kind cyanotype to take home with you.

Collecting, drying and making my own tea

outsider

On the occasion of the participation in the Triennale that is taking place in Malmo with the name of “AGRIKULTURA Triennal” located in the area of Hyllie, within the future English Park, we present a proposal with the title Outsider within the project Kitchen Dialogues.

We start from the idea of developing, in the allocated area, a series of spaces where the management of various human activities cause the least possible impact on other species and on the terrain itself; Posing a unique area of coexistence and confluence, a matrix for the world through an alliance between art and biocentrism, where the collective practice of social production and reproduction becomes social transformation, including the biological sphere.

The group of actions that will take place between these elements has no limit. There is incompatibility, community, asylum and discord, decay, rupture and degradation, or collapse without rapprochement. There are coincidences and estrangements that make possible the presence of diversity.

The proposal includes the hosting, in the area allocated by AGRIKULTURA Triennal, of the necessary requirements for two spaces. One, a space generated for the accomplishment of the performances of the artists who have been invited to participate in the Triennal. Two, a space designated to give a public service as an area to rest. The project is carried out contemplating the sustainability and including the participation of the diversity of the vegetal species that grow in wild form at the moment in the whole area where the project is made.

The goal is to generate a project that reviews the right of plants, and other living beings. The project includes wild plants designated as undesirable plants in areas controlled by humans such as gardens and plants without homes.
The Outsider project is not what you do, but how you do it, which forms the basis of the ethics of such relationships. From this point of view, the project fosters thinking through our multi-specific collaboration. The ethics of relationships between species is a debate that has been going through the field of contemporary art for years. Outsider, is hosting a project dedicated to multispecies co-evolution that examines and hopes to reshape links between living beings, both human and non-human.

Anna Elwing joining Calling for the Others

The first Calling for the Others workshop will take place on Wed 28.6. at 12-14.30. Welcome! There have been some changes in the plans: unfortunately our kulning expert Helle Thun got ill. But we are happy to welcome Anna Elwing who’ll join guide us to the world of kulning. Anna is professional singer as well as singing and yoga teacher. Read more about her on her website at www.satmanderyoga.se/lrare-1
For Wednesday’s workshop, unfortunately the Agrikultura info signs are not set up by the time yet. If you have Google maps, please check out the map at agrikultura.triennal.se/visit If you come from the Hyllie train station direction, walk the street in between the Emporia shopping mall and Malmö Arena until you see a sculpture of a huge woman face. Keep going straight forward over the intersection and the bridge over the motorway. After the bridge you’ll see red containers on the left. From there, there will be someone guiding you forward.

Trees of 40 fruit planted

Sam’s apple and cherry trees have been planted by Lars Qvint’s students at Hvilan utbildning.

Sam will be assisted by Daniel Wilby, who will collect and write backstories to the trees that Sam creates.

Dandelions on the move

I’m now taking up a large number of plants at the croft. They are planted in pots made of newspaper paper and placed in the shadow to rest. Each plant is numbered and registered on a map, to ensure it will be replanted in the same position at the new site in Hyllie.

Preparing the performance for the opening

These are edible sculptures.

The transparent egg contains a very special collection of seeds, flowers, herbs, fruits and spices. When you eat an egg, the thin transparent shell crashes and a complex bouquet starts to expand inside your mouth. The progressive layering of the tastes takes you in to the landscape we have imagined so dearly. A place where a rich biodiversity keeps evolving reaching out for you, dynamic, reciprocal. In Landscape of Resistance wild herbs and cultivars do not compete, like the tastes you just felt in your mouth, they are part of the same discourse.
Come to taste them, 1st of July at 15:00 at Hyllie’s park, Egle will offer them during a ritual performance at the plot of land she has seeded.

And Monix Sjölin, Johanna Kindvall, Susanna Kapusta, Marek Walczak for helping putting up fence and water.

Stories of coming together

​What does it mean to *come together*? For my piece in Agrikultura, I am collecting stories about what this means to you. When, how or why do people come together? In particular, I’m interested stories such as: (1) a time when you came together with others in a way that made you feel free, or that empowered your individuality, (2) a time when you came together with others for the sake of cooperation, and through coordinated effort achieved more that any individual could have on their own, and (3) a time when you came together with others in a spirit of negativity or meanness, perhaps in such a way that your common link was the exclusion or bullying of an outsider.

Stories can be long or short – let’s say between 20 and 500 words. I would like to collect an audio recording of you telling your story, and could do this in person or over the phone. If you would prefer, I would be happy to receive a short text, as long as you don’t mind me making a recording of someone else reading your story.

Audio of your story will be incorporated as source material in my piece. Except for the sound of your voice, your anonymity will be preserved. And again, if you would prefer, I’d be happy to have someone else lend their voice on your behalf.
Accepting stories in English or Swedish.

Please contact me via email if you are interested. You can reach me via gmail with username rsolomon.
