Latitude 58,830

THE FOREST THAT UNITES – 15 artistes de la ID:I Galleri de Stockholm au Centre des Arts et de la Culture de Chicoutimi, Canada, du 30 novembre 2017 au 12 janvier 2018

Latitude 58,830
In north of Bohuslän on the West coast of Sweden the virgin forest grows. Just inside the coastline you can see the windblown trees wobble and further west, where the waves hit the cliffs made of granite, with soft shapes formed from the ice age, over 920 million years old. They cut stone here in the beginning of the twentieth century and it was here Hitler ordered granite which he were going to use for the new capital Germania, luckely the history manage to change his desire. When I look over the ocean –beyond the horizon– I can imagine Northern scotland on my left side and straight forward Canada, it is just a ship missing to be able to reach you. If I continue on the same Latitud 58,830 I will arrive to Parc National Kuurujuac in Canada. (Latitude 58,830, Longitude -63,000), an invisible thread goes between us.
