Zirkus Loko-Motiv

Strike a Pose

Welcome to the Performance

Two Happy Girls

The performance group Zirkus Loko-Motiv was in Handen on Friday for an unusual happening. During one hour The Hanging Gardens of Haninge were set up in front of the cultural centre on Poseidon's square. Anyone who wanted could contribute with any type of item to be used in the short-lived artwork. In return they got a diploma. I gave them a kitschy figure that I bought at a yard sale earlier this year. My flickr friend Jim handed over a keyboard and an old meat grinder! Two musicians played some interesting music while the hanging gardens took form in the strong wind. The performance is part of a project called The Seven Wonders of Stockholm. This was the second wonder. On the first photo you can see one of the founders of the performance group, the actress Ylva Törnlund striking a pose for the photographer. I was also welcomed to the happening by Roland Haeberlein. He is an artist and a sculptor and really knows how to dress sharply. On the third and last photo you can see two happy young girls holding up their diplomas. Guess who got the first diploma of the day? More photos from the happening tomorrow.

Sounds like a great event. She really can strike a pose can't she?

Like the photo exactly in the order, this story of the happening is interesting. Is it a somewhat funny way to reenact the Seven Wonders? Hope to see soon something about this...
