100 migratory

Glaskonstnären Monica L Edmondsons utställning med hundra kärl av glas, har återvänt från sina resor ut i världen, resor som startade i Sápmi. Kärlen har migrerat in och ut ur olika miljöer, länder och världar.

Genom att länka samman samisk tradition, glas och konsthantverk vill konstnären lyfta fram kärlet som budbärare och metafor för människan, och uppmärksamma frågor om tillhörighet, identitet, ursprung och migration.

25-27.7 Utomhusutställning av kärlen under Gränshandelsmarknaden i Tärnaby.

Utställningen visas på Västerbottens museum 1.2-14.5 2014. Läs mer här och här.

Del av projektet Rock art in Sápmi.

 

IN ENGLISH

100 MIGRATORY – this extensive art project initiated by Monica L Edmondson – explores issues such as identity, origin, allegiance and migration. A hundred glass vessels depart on a world-wide return journey, starting in their home in the vast, winter-white mountains of Sápmi.

The forms of glass vessels, in the project used as a metaphor for ourselves, stress the importance of a secure warm nucleus in the life of every individual. At the same time 100 MIGRATORY argues the value of venturing out of original security in order to gain understanding and respect for otherness.

The migrating glass vessels are exhibited together with images and texts – blog and book – at the Museum of Västerbotten.

Notice! The museum is closed on Mondays.

Carmen Olsson

A co-work including artist Monica L. Edmondson and dancer Carmen Olsson kicked off in 2012 and will continue through this year before it reaches its finale in the spring of 2014 with the exhibition 100 Migratory at Västerbottens museum. This is an examining installation displayed via glass objects, pictures and dancing. As a part of the exposure, dancer Carmen Olsson (co-working with Norrlandsoperan), will create a performance that will be staged during the exhibition period. With the help of her Nordic and Spanish heritage Carmen Olsson has developed a personal style of  the Japanese dance form Buto – Mibudo. It is characterized by precision and a strong presence in every motion. Carmen is also a trained landscape architect and possesses a great interest for visual arts and architecture, which has led to several collaborations with artists from other art forms.
