Live Art

Since 2014 – and intensified in 2016 with a 3-year development grant from Region Skåne and The Swedish Arts Council – Wanås Konst has actively been 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.

In 2016, the performance program was presented during thre weekends with the artists Dinis Machado, Helena Olsson, Anna Pehrsson, Zoë Poluch and Rachel Tess & Luis A. Rodrguez. The year after, the sculpture park became the departure point for a series of live art encounters and experiments in the form of performances and workshops. The artists William Forsythe, Éva Mag, Sonia Khurana, Maria Hassabi, Mammalian Diving Reflex, Peter Mills and Björn Säfsten participated in the program. 

In the summer of 2018, Wanås Konst welcomed 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, Centre Pompidou Paris 2016, and Skulptur Projekte Münster 2017, among others. In 2019, Wanås Konst's visitors could encounter the dancer and choreographer Benoît Lachambre's Fluid Grounds in the Art Gallery. The durational performance took place throughtout the month of July.

“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
