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
