my curiosity – around the next corner – led me further

I moved closer to the maple – in the direction of the text – towards City Gross – Kaliningrad – Damascus

jag rörde mig i textens riktning

there – against the wall – I had to bend down – to read on

I could have stepped on them – but read the words – neck facing the sky

I moved in the direction of the text (jag rörde mig i textens riktning)

Public commission. Site-specific permanent installation. Blastered concrete and stone

I moved in the direction of the text consists of nine site-specific sentences blastered into the built environment at various locations in the residential area Vallastaden, Linköping. The sentences address people moving in the area, while walking on the sidewalk, crossing a corner or looking over a railing. The main character in the texts is the reader themselves in relation to their own posture, the surrounding nature and the bypassing moment. 

Commissioned by the municipality of Linköping for Vallastaden.
Art consultant: Åsa-Viktoria Wihlborg for ArtPlatform.
Special thanks to: Khashayar Naderehvandi and Rikard Heberling.
