Mandana Moghaddam about "Vinden bär oss med sig"
Record your phone call and become a part of a public arts project on campus.
Date: Tuesday 26 May
Place: Vardagsrummet, the Humanities Building
The artist Mandana Moghaddam talks about her site specific art work named “Vinden bär oss med sig” (En. The wind will carry us) that will be inaugurated at Umeå University in October. She will also describe the role of conversation in the art work.
The arts project is produced by the Public Art Agency Sweden (Statens konstråd). Curator for the project is Kristina Möster.
Do you want to take part?
The sculpture will include recorded phone calls which is why the arts project is now looking for those of you who can consider making a recorded phone call to someone – a close friend or a complete stranger. You can phone whoever you want, talk whichever language you wish and talk about whatever you like; love, death, joy, anxiety or news around the world are mere examples of topics.
You are also able to make more than one phone call. The only requirement is that the answering part is informed about the project at the beginning of the phone call. Mandana Moghaddam will then choose whole or parts of the recorded phone calls in a mix with silence for the installation.
