    But what is it, exactly, that constitutes a “barrier”? Are barriers evolving phenomena, do they have sell-by dates, and, once abolished, can they metamorphose or mutate into something benign or even more sinister?

    The body as a site of conflict.

    In order to understand ourselves, we need look up and out. It's not just about the art scene being global, but also about the way Sweden looks today with inhabitants from different continents. What are established and emerging artists in the South African art scene working on, and how do they relate to Wanås as a site? In the last few years, we have explored sculpture as something changeable and non-static. This year, we encounter several artworks in which a person or a body has a strong presence: we hear distinct voices, see this depicted in stone, or encounter it in portraits—a classical tradition presented in diverse ways.

    “I bring together the natural world that inspires me and the inherent qualities of glass; changeable, contrast-filled, reflective, luminous.”

    ” The Easter Art Tour gives a taste of our upcoming shows, playful and intimate, accessible and challenging.”
    Elisabeth Millqvist, artistic director, Wanås Konst
    This year movement and the body takes the center stage at Wanås. Jump, encounter dance in the park, get up into the trees and experience with your entire body. It’s a season that is both playful and intimate, accessible and challenging.
