Physical description [en]

A one-hour, site-specific performance that includes a soundwalk, film, a reading, and seed sharing in and around an urban allotment.

Description [en]

Performed 5 September, 2019, as part of the Walking Festival of Sound, Stockholm (5-8 Sep), a transdisciplinary event exploring the role of walking through and listening to our everyday surroundings. It combines a number of free and public events including walking performances and walking seminars which take place in diverse public spaces around Stockholm. Evening events informed by walking practices take place in various event spaces. Walking Festival of Sound facilitates a meeting point for an international network of practitioners and researchers interested in sound and walking. Through diverse events we explore how walking and listening practices can augment and challenge the way we perceive, navigate through, and care for our shared environments.

The Walking Festival of Sound is funded by the Newcastle University, Institute for Creative Arts Practice. The program of events is organized and curated by Jacek Smolicki and Tim Shaw. Coorganizing partner: Fragmentarium Club

Abstract [en]

In this combined talk, walk, listening session and reading, Janna Holmstedt will depart from an invisible border and an urban allotment, the tiny remnants of a once huge community that was levelled with the ground in 1965. Relations are traced between different figures, places and times: earthworms in the soil beneath our feet, potato riots in Stockholm during WW1, the allotment movement, archaeological findings of popcorn in Peru, Sentinel-1, a pair of satellites that orbit Earth to monitor soil moisture, and a cob of corn from Zea mays var. amylacea. All are fragments from a work-in-progress where the allotment becomes a place to think with and through, where the small place, the everyday and the trivial intra-acts with the global, large-scale and remote. Holmstedt uses this superficially demarcated piece of land as an interface - or rather, a situation of shared surfaces - through which post-anthropocentric modalities of belonging and care can be attended to, and transcorporeal entanglements be experienced. In her own words, it is a place for 'unlearning'.
