A seasonal documentation of the wetland study sites

SWAMP STORYTELLING

2015 – 2017 | Collaborator / Affiliates : Art Lab Gnesta & Swedish Institute

Swamp Storytelling weaves together a narrative of wetland systems through a combination of art-science residencies, place based learning and community engagement events.

The project ‘Swamp Storytelling’ manifests at the cusp of land and water. It investigates the wetlands of Sweden and India, which are culturally perceived to be wastelands, grounds of mythical creatures in folklore and places of decay. Moving between the border of science and art, the project aims at bringing deeper insight into contemporary art production, socio-political thought processes and scientific method.

Swamp Camp engages youth by using creative learning approaches, critical inquiry, field science and artistic mediums to explore wetlands from the perspective of a student. These outdoor learning programs with local schools are geared towards adventure and experimentation in this misunderstood landscape.

Swamp Residencies invites artists and scientists into a variety of coastal and freshwater sites for extended research based residency immersions. The practitioners use field based methods to document the system, attempt to answer questions or conduct experiments. These are multiple translations and interpretations of the wetland ecosystem.
