EXHIBITION & INSTALLATION
How to Be a Cyborg
The first year of the pandemic, 2020, the choreographer stopped dancing and creating performances. Isolated from friends, family and fellow artists. In order to continue with creative processes started experimenting with compositions of images and collages and posted them online. A daily journal to stay sane turned into an artistic practice, an outlet of thoughts and longings.
For a writer isolation is a significant part of its creation process. So it could be said that the writer was somehow in a more comfortable zone during the pandemic. While the writer was following the daily journal of the choreographer, she decided to propose a collaboration and started to write from his images and collages with the underlying subject of cyborgism - a theme that both are interested in terms of artistic research.

The exhibition ”The Fragments” wants to showcase the things that have broken. The cities, the villages, the homes, our families, our hearts and our future.
”We ran away frome our home, we picked up the pieces and we took the with us. Pieces of our past, pieces of our present. Our backpacks are full of broken dreams.
This exhibition is only fragments of our eclectic creativity, just like us - only fragments of ourselves. From when we were happy, when we were whole and carefree.”
The emergency organization ”Artists At Risk” helped seven artists and their families to come to Sweden. They came to different art residences in Jönköpings Län. Now they have the ability to continue on their creative journey as artists, just as before there was a war in Ukraine.
They are an art community from Kherson, artists, illustrators, muralists, tattoo artists and ceramists. They were forced to leave their homes and families in a wartorn country, and now they can help preserve and continue the cultural heritage of their beloved country.
