Event description

Description

Alby is a suburb in Botkyrka Kommun in the South of Stockholm. Fifty years ago Alby was a village composed of small houses and some farms. Today, people of more than 90 nationalities live there. I invite you to walk from the metro station to a clearing in the woods where you could listen both the natural and urban environment. There, I will create a room for sharing our voices through our mother tongues. If you want to participate in, I would like to explore how our voices will join in a single tone until the silence comes. And do it again. And again. Our voices will transform into the breathing of shared space. In the same way that the sound of Alby's multicultural community does.

Juanma González (b. 1977, Madrid, Spain) is an artist currently working and living in Stockholm. He graduated from Kungliga Konsthögskolan (KKH) in Stockholm, 2016, and in Media from Universidad Europea in Madrid, 1999. He uses walking as a method for making art. For the last five years, Juanma has been researching pilgrimage as a contemporary phenomena through the postgraduate courses Research Lab at KKH 2017 and Sites and Situations at Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts, and Design, 2018.
