A participatory exhibition - exploring new ways of relating to the canals in Malmö
A participatory exhibition. What do we see when we gaze into water? What stories of life in the Anthropocene lie just below the surface? The project focuses on the canals and other bodies of water as a place of complex community for birds, insects, plants, algae, fish and more. And examines how these watery spaces are integrated into urban spaces.
A participatory exhibition invites visitors to explore possibilities of developing new ways of relating to the canals in Malmö through artistic practice. It aims to sharpen meditative sensory perception between human and non-human networks in order to challenge hegemonic perspectives towards water bodies in urban fabrics.
Participants will be invited to visit an installation in a nearby canal and document the stories they find there. The observations and discoveries of this event will be included as part of the exhibition at STPLN.
Part of the Locally Alien Festival.
