TRESPASSING, en installation av konstnärerna Peter Backhaus och Leif Haglund i den gamla mejeribyggnaden i Årstad, Falkenberg.

Mejeriet som inte använts under 60 år har nu gett plats för konst. Årstads mycket tillfälliga Konsthall visar för andra året i rad en sommarutställning.



On May 20th the project “Sad Truth” gets underway, where six artists are gathered for a week on the small island of Fleinvær, outside Bodø. There they will collect sounds, pictures, and films, and collaborate on digital artworks.

“Human beings are perhaps the first beings on Earth who can and must make a choice about whether to live in equilibrium with nature as a whole, or take care of its diversity. Why then do we choose not to do that which is obviously correct and important? We are the first generation to have both the knowledge and tools to take action – if we had the will. So, when the words that form the social debate are drained of their power, perhaps a space opens up for art and music to meaningfully contribute.”
