Events for this project:
Wed Apr 30 - Sat May 10 2014Collective performance
Convoy is an installation and performance that takes its inspiration from Sámi tradition, ecology and mythology. Convoy seeks to mobilize and activate our shared responsibility to achieve sustainable development. It does this via a collective performance that uses symbols such as growing grass and prams. The prams symbolize delicate fragility. At the same time they also represent gentle safekeeping and hope for the future.
Gunilla Samberg, an Umeå artist, is the mastermind behind Convoy. Umedalen Skulptur is just one of the many places where she has works on show. Convoy will be staged in central Umeå throughout the entire exhibition of which it forms part.
