The Hanging Gardens of Haninge

The Hanging Gardens of Haninge

Katarina Rosen


Following up on yesterdays post, here is a look at the very short-lived artwork that was The Hanging Gardens of Haninge. You had to be there to see it, as it is gone now. Luckily for you I was there with my camera. It took the performance group Zirkus Loko-Motiv a little over an hour to create the weird construction. Passers by were asked to participate by handing over any object they could live with out in return for a diploma. I had read about the happening in the paper so I had one such object with me. During the happening I walked around snapping left and right while chatting with the performers. And I was interviewed and photographed by a journalist from the Cultural Centre those photo will appear online next week. On the second photo you can see the cradle and acrobalance artist Katarina Rosen. She's not a member of the group, but got in contact with them when they bought her old camper which is now a mobile work shop, you can see it on the third photo. Katarina actually lives in a camper at the Circus village in Alby (remember the circus people from a while back), together with 14 artists from seven different countries. She's currently looking to set up the camper at another location and I suggested Trollsta in Sorunda where another theatre group is based. The third and next wonder will take place next month in Skärholmen. When all seven wonders have been created there will be a big happening in Stockholm where all seven wonders will be represented. To see all the photos from this event check out the slideshow.

What a whimsical event.

I dare to say that your pictures are a lot better than the event itself!

It looks like fun - is it an annual event?

Cool, fun yet bewildering. Is it *that* cold already?

Steffe said...

It was a happening. It will never happen again. Whimsical is one word that can describe it. Ha, thanks Mr. Poet. It is starting to get cold, especially in the afternoon.

Certainly is interesting, even if I'm not sure of the point of it all if there is a point of it all...

I wonder what the wonder is here...

As always, very nice photos!
