Curator Trickle - Art in the River Anna Viola Hallberg



We invite to a workshop with walkers and observers. The workshop accentuates relational strategies of creating and sharing space. Methodologies in artistic practices are unfolded in order to raise awareness on disregarded or unfamiliar spaces. The workshop emerges from choreographer Molissa Fenley’s postmodern ideas about space, and about movement memories that are buried in our bodies. It is an elaboration of space reflecting the mix of geographical environments that constitutes spatial memory. We also lean towards sociologist Doreen Massey’s important claim that spaces are never static; they transform as we move with and through them. Thus, walking is also space.

One by Walking received funding from Swedish Riksbanken’s Jubileumsfond and NOS-HS (Nord Forsk) in 2021 to arrange four workshops. The workshops aim to contribution to current academic understandings and literature of the fundamental role of physical mobility in many communities and societies in the Nordic countries. Besides this, it will provide insights into the role which walking has had on global society more broadly. Lastly, sharing academic knowledge with the wider public through innovative engagement activities between universities and societal institutions. >>>
