On the green lawn at Wanås, a stretch of tall willows was recently planted, a 40-meter coiling line that would measure 500 metres if it were straight. The saplings are planted in the form of a labyrinth to form Srinivasa Prasad the artist’s signature written in Kannada, the provincial language of his Karnataka state in India.


Wanås Konst also opens the season with an entirely new room dedicated to film and video art. In the film program ”But a pit stop on a long journey”, loaded and imaginary landscapes pass by in films by Indian based artists – Neha Choksi, Rohini Devasher, Shilpa Gupta and Asim Waqif.


Wanås Konst is run by the Wanås Foundation, a non-profit art foundation located on an estate consisting of a medieval castle, an organic farm, and a sculpture park. Marika Wachtmeister initiated the exhibitions at Wanås in 1987 and is the Founder of the Wanås Foundation. The sculpture park holds a constantly growing number of permanent works by internationally renowned contemporary artists such as Yoko Ono, Marina Abramovic’, Roxy Paine and Antony Gormely. The focus is on sculpture and installations made by the artists specifically for the Wanås Foundation
