In this new series I explore our common ancestry in Scandinavia and Southern Africa. Similarities in indigenous art and early human visual expression are used as a bridge between past and present.

 As one of three project managers of ARTBIKE/FRIHJUL - Bikes as art, Art as bikes. It has been a fantastic and busy summer in Sweden!

Along a 5.5km cyclepath on the Island of Tjörn, westcoast of Sweden where many people go to spend their summers, we have put art and installations. Every Thursday evening there has been a happening, performance, music or theatre in the open.

11 artists from Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Faroe islands. 9 public performances with music, dance, theatre and workshops.

Three managers right on track :-)
