Live Art

In 2016, Wanås Konst began actively making performance and dance a part of the programme. Not just a one-time event, but a long-term investment in “live art,” art that must be experienced in the moment and requires your presence then and there. This means more chances to take part in dance and performance at Wanås. This year we dive into the specific effects of dance and choreography using the sculpture park and the outlying areas as the grounds for a series of live art encounters and experiments in the form of performances and workshops. The artists dialogue with the existing collection and nature. They play and tease, and deepen our connection to visitors of all ages. They change the way we experience our bodies in relation to time and space.​

In the summer of 2018, Wanås Konst welcomes Xavier Le Roy and Scarlet Yu as they investigate time, space, and sculpture on site through the participatory workshop Still Untitled. Le Roy is one of the foremost names in choreography. Le Roy and Yu have collaborated together for the Venice Biennale 2015, Kaldor Public Art Projects – Sydney 2015, Centre Pompidou Paris 2016, for The Unfaithful Replica at CA2M – Madrid 2016 and most recently Skulptur Projekte Münster 2017.

“Coming into contact with art at Wanås Konst is not superficial. It is live, physical and could be characterized as unavoidable: you feel the dirt under your feet, understand the weight of your body relative to a river of concrete, sense its width in a maze of trees, or its height distorted through bent glass. You seek out the specific work you would like to see and your sense of time is altered. The journey becomes just as important as the object you are looking for. Art is all around. Nature is all around. You activate it, it activates you.” – Rachel Tess, Associate Curator Dance, Wanås Konst
