KLARA KRISTALOVA & MARTINA LOWDEN, How to become a stone and other songs from the woods of the wildboars

(Art Project)
Klara Kristalova and Martina Lowden presented the art book for children 2014, hur man blir en sten och andra sånger från svinskogen [how to become a stone and other songs from the woods of the wildboars']. The book is the fourth in a series that each year invites new authors and artists to collaborate on the children’s book experiment, which takes place among the art in the park, in reality and within imagination. 

Writer Martina Lowden describes how she related to the images when writing: “It was from Klara’s imagery that the fauna came. The black fox and all the moths, rock-faces and branch-hands. The girl in the pond, the girl in the tree, the girl in the moon…”. Kristalova works with drawing and sculpture, and for many years she has been exploring glazed ceramics. She refers to her sculptures as three-dimensional sketches. The figures are often in transition to become someone else or something else. The story is in Swedish and available to read and listen to. Borrow the book or an audio version in the art gallery.

JEPPE HEIN,
A SMILE FOR YOU

In the multi-stage project A Smile for You, Jeppe Hein has focused on the concept of happiness, questioning what happiness is. In the spring and summer of 2013 there were two partially parallel exhibitions of Jeppe Hein's work at Bonnier Konsthall and Wanås Konst. The result was a joint publication, which, in addition to rich visual material from the show itself, contains both audience responses to Jeppe Hein's question on the nature of happiness, as well as texts by art historians about happiness in contemporary art.

MARIA BAJT & JASON DIAKITÉ,
COWS CAN DREAM 

(Art Project)
Now and then on an especially clear night under a full moon, people wandering at night will see a cow walking through the sculpture Park. Sometimes daytime visitors also see a cow in some of the artworks. Maybe in a tree, one time on top of a pyramid. It's Sam the Cow, who's looking for art in the park on the other side of the stonewall.

Cows Can Dream is the third in a series of children's art books about Sam's experience of art and the park in reality and fantasy. Each year a new writer and artist experiment with the children's book. In 2013 the project was presented as both a book and an exhibition. The English translation of Cows Can Dream was published in 2016.

IMAGINE ART – IN NATURE AT WANÅS

Images and texts depict the art and structures of a sculpture park far off the beaten track. Wanås is a place where art, nature, and history meet. The synthesis of contemporary art, a medieval castle, and a working organic farm is completely unique. The book offers a range of perspectives and approaches that cover Wanås' 25 years (1987–2012) of operation. The texts look back, look forward, and deepen our understanding in a richly illustrated publication that follows our art collection through the years.

ANNA CAMNER, THE SICK ROSE

(Art Project)
Look at the leaf. A catepillar hatches, then hides. 
In the pond a single rose is floating. 
Discover plants, insects, and traces. 
The images narrate a poetic picture book for all ages. 
The title is taken from a poem by the 18th century English poet William Blake.

We watch as Sam takes a closer look at nature in Wanås Konst's second children's book, part of a series based on Sam the Cow's adventures and experiences at Wanås in reality and fantasy. Every year a new artist and author takes on Sam's story. Anna Camner created the 2012 edition.

FREDRIK SÖDERBERG & ASTRID TROTZIG,

DEN FÖRTROLLADE PARKEN

(Art Project)
In this story of pearl tears and whispering winds, we meet the children of the castle and Sam the ancient Water Witch of the pond. The story takes place at Wanås' park among the trees and the art, but the words and pictures take you away to a magical and fantastical place. Den förtrollade parken [The Enchanted Park] is the first in a series of children's books about Sam’s experiences at Wanås in reality and fantasy. Every year new writers and artists collaborate on a children's book about Sam at Wanås. The first in the series is by writer Astrid Trotzig and artist Fredrik Söderberg.

JAN SVENUNGSSON,
BYGGA SKORSTEN – BUILDING CHIMNEYS

Bygga skorsten – Building chimneys is the first major book on the work of Jan Svenungsson. The book focuses on the artist's longstanding "chimney projects," and especially on the construction of The Eighth Chimney at Wanås in the summer of 2007, a work which is now permanently in the park. All chimney sculptures created from 1992 to 2007 are discussed in both text and image. The book contains Jan Svenungsson's diary from the construction of The Eighth Chimney (published in Kristianstadsbladet in 2007), essays on the Chimney Project by Catharina Gabrielsson (architect, critic) and Jörg Heiser (editor-in-chief of Frieze Magazine) and a foreword by Marika Wachtmeister.
