Skördefest & Miljödagar 2022

26 august – 28 august 2022

 

During this year’s edition of Harvest Festival & Environment Days, artist Lior Nønne Malue Hansen will create an installation of recycled materials by invitation of Havremagasinet.

An open workshop with the artist and educator Jessica Hendler will also happen at the exhibition site. The proposed workshops will focus on work and creation concerning recycling.

Recycling can give forgotten and discarded objects a new life. It can suddenly appear exciting, beautiful, or even seem to hold untold possibilities by re-evaluating and reworking something old or broken. This transformation occurs through the work of the mind and the hand. It raises questions about the properties of an object or material and how its function can change over time. In a broader sense, it also relates to human abilities, function, and behavior.

As raw materials become increasingly scarce and the piles of ‘unfit’ objects grow, it is necessary to make room for new ways of thinking and working that use what already exists. Based on these questions, Lior Nønne Malue Hansen will spend a few days building an installation of recycled materials in the Havremagasin’s tent.

Lior will be present during the workshop on 27 August and on Friday, 26 August, when she will be building the installation.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Lior Nønne Malue Hansen (1989, Århus) is based in Stockholm and trained at the Royal College of Art in Stockholm and Århus Kunstskole. She often takes social structures and problems as a starting point for her work, dwelling on issues of ecology, politics, and the intertwining of the social and the psychological.

She works with site-specific installations created from recycled materials that she collects, adapts, and transforms. Texts and titles form an essential part of many of her works, reinforcing the poetic quality of the materials and objects she uses.  Hansen opened her first solo exhibition at Nässjö Konsthall in 2020 and has participated in several group exhibitions, including Solen formar berget at Aguélimuséet in Sala, Ekotop at Gävle Konstcentrum, Survival of the fittest at Accelerator Stockholm and Hydrotop Gnesta Art Lab.
