May Birds Build
and other tales from the age of dissolvement
The Nordic countries are today moving towards a more controlled built environment. Creative self-driven places that previously have been able to exist in the undefined spaces, are threatened with densification and exploitation. The city wants to clean up what doesn’t fit into the clean, tidy image it wants to display. What happens when a bird settles on a balcony?
The age of dissolvement is a concept we use as a starting point in the exhibition. It helps us to describe the time we find ourselves in today.
We are an artist duo @vilmamaat and @perviktor.hj working for the past ten years with a sculpture called The Moving Castle @wagonsculpture. Among other things, the sculpture examines questions about improvisation in architecture and construction, as well as the rigid bureaucratic processes that determine how we get to live and build.
In 2018, The Moving Castle got into a bureaucratic process with the municipality and is today prohibited to enter. Despite the prohibition, the sculpture is inhabited by birds, bumblebees and other living beings.
In the exhibition May birds build - and other stories from the age of the dissolvement, Bubblan is transformed into a room where images can be linked together and make space for new stories to emerge.
