A small exhibition, “Furorna i Bodafors” [the pines in Bodafors] in the gallery at the Malmsten school in Lidingö, Stockholm, as well as a talk to the students there, was included in my commitments related to the Wood Art Residency Bodafors. Alessandra di Pisa, the curator, helped me plan and actually built the exhibition, which opened on 22 November with a talk at 9 am. Some of the videos created during the residency are on display in small monitors, with my recorded voice on headphones. The photo above is by Leif Burman; the exhibition is documented (in Swedish) on an RC page here.
Besides preparing the exhibition I visited my old pine friend in Nobelparken a few times, not every day but frequently during my stay in town. And I went to see the pine in Lill-Jan’s Wood right at the moment when the snowfalls began. Our conversation was edited into a podcast episode, here, as usual.
In addition to visiting these pines I also went back to the maple tree in Kastellholmen, a small island next to Skeppsholmen in the centre of the city. I made a small test conversation with it, in Swedish, but still have not decided what to do with it really. It is definitely not a pine. More about that experiment on my personal blog, here.
