Silent Walk at Lövholmen
– A movement-based artwork by Räserbyrån
Silent Walk is a movement based, interactive artwork, leading us on pathways through nature and the urban landscape of Lövholmen. The participants are both observers and co-creators of the artwork. The group is supposed to stay close together and in the mode of a fine tuned attention over the whole duration of the walk. We intend to shift the perception by going into different modalities of walking and perceiving. Thereby, we will slightly shift the focus to experience different aspects of the surroundings. We will try to see the unseen and listen to the unheard. By dealing with subtle performative actions we will heighten the awareness in the group in order to perceive more delicate information.
Lövholmen, with its industrial and artisan history, is a neighborhood facing large-scale transformations. Located in close proximity to Stockholm’s city center, with closeness to both water and nature, the area enables exciting possibilities in the future. During several decades, the area has been investigated by a number of students, ranging from a spectra of academic disciplines. Silent Walk enables us to gain a different perspective, and a possibility to revitalize the area, originating in our presence as physical bodies within this space. Pre-summer 2019, the construction plans regarding Lövholmen will be presented during a so called samråd, i.e. a chance for the civil society to express their view on the proposals. Silent Walk is an attempt to make an alternative reading, which may contribute even more to the discussion of urban planning.
The initiators to Silent Walk are dancers and choreographers Ingo Reulecke, Katarina Eriksson and Per Sacklén. They have experience from various fields of performing arts; such as classical stage performances, site-specific art, improvisation and experimental collaborations within different art fields. They have worked with community dance and leading movement practices with both professional dancers and non-dancers.
The leaders and the participants develop the walks together, which makes every walk a unique experience. The event is free of charge, but you need to make a reservation in order to participate.
