Gamlegården, Kristianstad

Artist: anna högberg and johan tirén
Tags: Art is happening

A quiet walk with eyes closed. Artists Anna Högberg and Johan Tirén’s project takes its point of departure in a temporary performance in Gamlegården. The experience will contribute to developing a permanent artwork in collaboration with local residents.

What's happening?

Artists Anna Högberg and Johan Tirén have produced a preliminary study which forms the basis for the sketch proposal for a permanent artwork that will be developed in the area. The preliminary study is based on the experiences of the French artist and choreographer Myriam Lefkowitz’s performance pieces Walk, Hands, Eyes (Gamlegården) and How can one know in such darkness that were performed in situ in June 2016 during the research phase of Art is Happening.
