Kjerringøy Land Art Bienniale, Norway.
Jury of the Bienniale: Per Gunnar Eeg Tverbakk, Eva Bakkeslett, Ane Øverås.
Temporary site-specific installation.
Technique: braiding, material: Carex vesicaria called sennegrass (Norwegian), length approximately 80 m.
The work is dedicated to women in Polish- Norwegian family of the artist. The mother in law - Karin, was born in Alsos (Kjerringøy). The work intends to "touch" this woman heritage, kind of "soft power" by making an aliveness bound with the landscape and a powerful nature on the Kjerringøy peninsula. The installation was inviting to walk following the line. Sennegrass, the main material of a braid, was used by the Sámi people as an isolation material, giving warmth and keeping dry.
