swedish man in bunad



the bunad is the traditional norwegian costume. the one henrik is wearing is a romerikes bunad, and is specific for the erea. it's normally hard to get a swedish man into a bunad, but the romerikes bunad is blue and yellow enough to put a swedish heart at ease.

Red and White Circus Action

video

Red and white plastic all out there in the landscape but what about in there?

Snow Action

video

Up on the fjæll next to Mjøsa there is still snow in the forest. Here we tried with another colour coordinated action.
The given red and white surroundings of the buildings in the area. The snow. The outfit and the red-white restrictions.

The restriction making it more focused? Seeming like serious activity (i.e. lending authority from its normal uses)?

The interaction between the two power fields red and yellow present in all kinds of ways in this setting. A bit the black and white jin and yang setting but I want it to be more then just two forces against each other.
Two forces present at the same time. Two forces together. Two forces interacting. Two forces fighting. Two forces communicating. Etc.

Mmmm...need to consider the word "forces" if that is what is the right thing for this context..mmmmm.

Improvised interaction with temporal structure

video

I have been considering to build this kind of structures in different places.
While making the sketches I have considered different ways of interaction with the structure but today we just went along and saw what happened.

Temporal Red and White Structures





Taking material used normally around construction sites and creating temporal interventions in the landscape. Temporal structures, quickly built and quickly removed.
I started experimenting with this in the Lazio mountains in Italy this year.

Here not only the plastic strips are red and white but all the birches and the houses are either red or white.

Magic Stones



Walking along the shoreline of Mjøsa my pants suddenly found these magic green stones and started to interact. A normal summer they would be submerged in the cold and deep water of the lake.

life on the right side of mjøsa




the people living around mjøsa will all tell you that there is a right and a wrong side of mjøsa, but the explanation of which side is right and which is wrong will vary depending on what side the people come from. they all think their side of mjøsa is the right side.

slime life spring growth of mjøsa

ArtProjectMjøsa2008



From the 24th to the 29th of April the Swedish artist Henrik Hedinge and the Norwegian artist Eva Marie Yri Skjøldt will explore the surroundings of lake Mjøsa using various methods from the fields of performance art, video art, photography and land art.

"The photo is from a tour up in on the hillside next to Mjøsa where we interacted in different ways with the specific landscape conditions. I found the very vertical charactere of the landscape with both the high trees and the steep hillsides very intriguing. A stark contrast to the Italian mountains where I resided during January and February 2008." says Henrik.
