Exhibition at Hammarlunda Konststall, Sweden

During residency at ARNA, Sweden, my papercut artworks were on show, part of the Basta Biennalen at Hammarlunda Konststall. I had a lovely time speaking with visitors about their thoughts on healthy environment, plastic pollution, sustainability and well-being, making many local/global connections.

Day trip to Skaralid National Park Sweden

Breathing in Trees - I've been doing a lot of it in Sweden. It has been cold and grey and windy some days, but I'm thrilled to have been at ARNA in Autumn, to see the foliage colour and change of season. It has given me a sense of the Inside and Outside nature of life here.

Artist in Residence - ARNA Sweden

I've been in Harlosa, Sweden on residence at ARNA for two weeks now. The village sits in the centre of the Avian Kingdom, with beautiful lakes and farms surrounding. I've been on walks soaking up the autumn colours, vegetation, layers of land use and new sounds. The wind makes everything dance and foliage can turn to gold in the sunlight.
The beanie is getting plenty of use.

Birds Upside Down - Cultural exchange with ARNA

Infogad bild 2

The project 'Birds upside down' is developed as an exchange between children in two opposite areas in the world, The Avian Kingdom in Sweden and Noosa biosphere reserve in Australia.

With common birds in the two areas as a starting points, the project has the aim to make children aware of how environmental issues affect the long time development of all living beings.

The pictures shown at Noosa Regional Gallery are created in the two villages Revinge and Veberöd in The Avian Kingdom by children in ages between seven and nine during September 2017.

Birds Upside down is developed by ARNA with support from Kultur Skåne in Sweden and in partnership with Noosa Regional Gallery and the artist Nicola Moss in Australia.

I'm excited to be meeting Kerstin from ARNA, Sweden in person in a little over a week. And seeing the children's drawings at Noosa Regional Gallery. Check out the free kids workshops here for details and be involved in Birds Upside Down.
