KVADRENNALEN
Is not an organisation, it is not commercial, it is not non-profit, it is not private, it is not public. It is a coming together  of artists, art workers, art spaces, art institutions, to show the society at large  that the artworld is united at every level, across all the disciplines, now and in the future, in their shared belief in art , and show this united with the only shared language of art itself. 

Is an artist-run, nation-wide, 9-month long art programme that runs in parallel to the political agenda of an election year – from January 11th until, election day, September 11th 2022. It's aim is to unite the largest possible group of artists, artist-run organisations (across the disciplines visual, sound, stage, word, ...) in Sweden, before the radical political shift, that is getting ready to take over, becomes reality.

is the united stand of the free arts before the facts, before the threats become outright shackles, gags, cuts, and eradication, by addressing the current weaknesses of the free arts that lie hidden in the general misconceptions that 1) art is not essential in society and 2) that the art world is divided, making it an easy target for political voices that try to undermine the democrativ pillars in the pursuit of power



HYBRID

Is the exhibition program at BKN/Björkö Konstnod. It is a transformative, dynamic space for art that engages with life and nature; a space for developing concepts of community and poetic investigations. HYBRID seeks to explore and interpret possibilities beyond the violence of algorithms, egoism, deforestation, narrowmindedness and repression. From its core HYBRID extends to sites indoors and outdoors on or off the island. .
SCREENING PROGRAM
Title: KVADRENNALEN MANIFESTO - THIS IS A WORK OF ART

Media: Video
Duration: 6:01 min
Artist: Zoey Hart
Context: Hart addressed the Kvadrennial Manifesto during her residency at BKN

Statement: "The critical importance of art is embedded in its ability to communicate with and beyond words. To emphasize the urgency of ongoing critical dialogue within art and society, THIS IS THE WORK OF ART considers text as image, framing performance as a labor of communication, community, and clarifying ‘the work of the artist’ as a socially-engaged player on a unified global stage." Zoey Hart

Title: TOUCHING TIME
Media: Video (1 ch), color with sound.
Duration: 3 min

Artists: Oona Hyland och Anna Viola Hallberg

Context: TOUCHING TIME is the first collaboration between artists Anna Viola Hallberg (Sweden) and Oona Hyland (Ireland). It was realized at Björkö Konstnod during Hyland's residency (AiR BKN, where the artist Hallberg at the time also was holding the position as curator). TOUCHING TIME is an adaption of Hylands work on paper. The lucid paperworks are traces exploring the inside of tree bark, a surface rarely seen, this put as a metaphor of the exploration of trauma, power and silences. Installation, texts and narrator - Hyland. Video (camera & editing) - Hallberg.

Statement: "The personal as political... who are we on the fringe of the grand history writing, the ones of us who experienced silence and trauma? The video work is an attempt to move towards a general discussion on what forgetting, silence and trauma means and its implications in todays society."

Context/Statement: Lyssneske- is a collaboration between New York artist Zoey Hart and Stockholm-based artist Beatrice Alvestad Lopez. They started their collaboration at Björkö residency in December 2021 curated by Anna Viola Hallberg. Their shared passion for nature led to the exploration of moss and lichen rich in the local area through sound, film, and performance. Lyssneske is the Swedish translation for the Norwegian Lyttersken, meaning close listeners. The Lyssneske are listening as they softly tap the drum, the pulse, and breath into being. Moss become and is a living entity, circulating water as breath bringing us well. By exercises of embodying moss, breathing in it, drum taps, and poetry they get closer to the beat of teeming life.
