– What are you doing?
– We are weaving in the trees. What are you doing?
By doing something and being present we have informally met people and through this becoming part of the Circular Ring. Here you can find traces of life… beer in a can, old matches, a dead hare with a stick through the eye, an everyday life in Frölunda.
Västra Frölunda’s Circular Ring was designed in the 1960’s for community recreation. The once popular space is now overgrown and has been forgotten by most. In 2015, the vague space of the Ring will be built upon and disappear from the landscape. The exhibition tells the story of an urban area in rapid change due and shows the discrepancy of the city plans made by the politicians and the actual everyday life of the people living in the area of Frölunda.
The film The Kids, the Alcoholics, and the Artists features original music by Gustav Leijelind accompanied by children from Frölunda Elementary school. Throughout the exhibition, the film will be screened alongside an interactive community weaving activity using textile materials previously installed in the vague space. The exhibition is part of the research project Vague Terrain – Vague Tissue: a pre-study.
